About me

We all have the capacity to grow, repair, find balance and build resilience. Sometimes we just need a little help on the journey.

As an integrative practitioner, I draw on multiple therapy models aiming to create a safe, non-judgmental and highly personalised way of working. I aim to provide a space that encourages authenticity, openness and personal growth.

I offer face to face session in Clapham, London Bridge and Bank as well as Zoom/ Phone sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have experience working with a range of difficulties, including low mood and depression, self-esteem, stress, anxiety, traumatic events, loss, anger, obsessive-compulsive behaviours, relationships, sexuality, and issues around lack of meaning and fulfilment.

I welcome adult clients from all backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, identities, religions, disabilities, sexualities and gender.

I hold an Advanced Diploma in humanistic integrative counselling and am registered with the BACP.

Languages: English and German.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
