About me

I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, meaning I am trained in a variety of different approaches and tailor these according to your individual needs.

I incorporate a holistic approach to my work, and my sessions blend philosophical and humanistic approaches. Rather than breaking a person down into separate components and merely treating symptoms, I see the human condition as a whole; mind, body and spirit. My work incorporates a person's whole experience, and I invite clients to explore whatever comes to mind without judgement.

The foundations of my work are based on psychodynamic concepts. I believe that many of us have picked up ways of being and relating from our past, which may no longer serve us. People can become stuck in old patterns of behaviour, and might find themselves repeating unhelpful cycles. Therapy can shine light on these automatic ways of being and enlighten us to consciously live in a more meaningful way.
I work collaboratively with my clients throughout their therapeutic journey, providing a safe, confidential space.

I have experience working in the private healthcare sector, with a wide range of issues. These include, but are not exclusive to:

- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Relationship difficulties
- Intimacy issues
- Low self-esteem
- Self-harm
- Addiction & substance misuse
- Depression 
- Stress

For the past few years, I have facilitated both individual and group sessions in forensic services and mental health hospitals. These therapeutic groups have included emotion regulation, mindfulness, social skills, anger management and 12-step substance misuse programmes.
I have experience of working with individuals suffering from mild to severe mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and personality disorders.

Alongside my private practice, I am currently working at The Priory's Well-being Centre in Harley Street.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a background in psychology, and completed my psychotherapy and counselling training at Regent's University.

I am trained to deliver the following therapies:
Humanistic (person-centred)

I also have experience of delivering DBT and CBT informed techniques.

I have undertaken additional postgraduate training in existentialism; a philosophical approach focusing on the human condition as a whole. I follow this mode of thinking when helping individuals find meaning and fulfilment in life.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
