About me

Have you wondered what it might be like to have a trusted space and time where you might explore who you are and what it is like to be in the world as you find it? 

My way of working as an Existential Psychotherapist/Counsellor offers a chance to explore your experience of life and to find meaning, freedom and openness to new possibilities as they arise.  You may experience a different way of being listened to and being with another person in  safe space.  There will not be “homework”, judgement or set goals, but a journey together to allow what might become. 

I work in with people who are experiencing Anxiety, Depression or difficulties with mood, have feelings of being stuck in life, are questioning identity, struggling with relationships or going through times of adversity and loss. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling (Distinction) from the Regent’s School of Psychotherapy and Psychology at Regent’s University London.  I am currently completing the Postgraduate Certificate in Existential Psychotherapy.  I am a Registered Member of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and Trainee Member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy).  

Informed by a rich life experience, I have interests in LGBTQ+ issues and experience, the impacts of workplace bullying and redundancy, maternal and gynaecological mental health, intergenerational trauma, and in the process of performers and creative artists.  

I practice in the charity sector and in private practice in North London.  

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.
