I'm a professionally qualified, experienced counsellor with long term experience with private and NHS patients. Most importantly, I will listen and work with you in a non-judgmental way.
I specialise in a psychodynamic counselling. Regular sessions give you time to think and to talk about the feelings you have about yourself and other people. They also give you space to look at what is happening in your life at present and what has happened in the past. We look and explore how the past can affect the present, how you are feeling, thinking and behaving right now.
I'm able to establish a good working alliance with clients. My empathy and clear boundaries provide clients with a supportive and safe environment in which they can overcome difficulties and trauma and achieve personal understanding.
I offer time limited and open ended therapy in New Malden and in Central London.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
