About me

I offer a compassionate and confidential space, where people can feel safe to explore difficulties in their life and relationships, in a way that is accepting and non-judgmental.

Over the years, I have worked with a wide variety of people, supporting them through difficult times, helping them to express and understand their thoughts, feelings and behaviour better. which can be a transformative experience.

Having an interest in unconscious meanings and processes, I integrate psychoanalytic and Jungian approaches in an open and creative way, for instance, when working with dreams, personal or interpersonal experiences.

In addition to work with the unconscious, external relationships and the influences from the past that shape our "internal world", I am particularly interested in the different "parts" (or sub-personalities) that each of us have within ourselves, born from identifications with important figures in our lives or as responses to powerful life events.

Key to my work is to "listen" with deep empathy to what different parts you are bringing up in our session and to help create some coherence, some dialogue between them.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and experienced psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist (MSc) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), working within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I also do assessments and clinical work for Sutton Counselling, a community-based organisation in Sutton. I have specialised experience of working with refugees and survivors of torture and I work in an LGBTQ affirmative way.

Member organisations


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.

Further information

After our initial contact, I will arrange for a first session, which will be an opportunity for you to bring up any issues you want help with. I will ask some questions to get to know you better, while you can form an idea of how I could help you and what the therapy will be like. When we agree to work together for a brief number of sessions or for a longer period of time, these sessions are held for 50 minutes at a regular time every week.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
