About me

I am an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist, which means I bring together many schools of thought, such as psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, and transpersonal. I believe each person needs to be recognised for the individual that they are, and therefore my integrative approach is tailored to the specific individual’s needs.

My style is sensitive, empathic and relational, while also honest in the quest for deep exploration, understanding and connection to inner wisdom. To help access this inner wisdom I often make use of a combination of talking therapy and creative techniques, such as visualisations, drawing or working with dreams.

I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space in which anxieties, fears, frustrations and sorrows can be expressed and explored. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, including; depression, anxiety, shame, relationship issues, work-related issues, feeling stuck, low self-esteem & self-worth, feelings of not belonging, abuse and emotional neglect.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a research MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling and a five-year post-graduate diploma in Transpersonal and Integrative Psychotherapy from the Centre of Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) in London. I also hold an LLB in English and German Law from King’s College London.

Previous work experience included working in Corporate Communications for 15+ years within agencies and in-house at legal and financial services organisations. Last position held was Head of Communications for Europe & CIS at a global financial services organisation.

Having worked in the City and other high-pressured environments, I have personal experience of the stresses and strains that those working conditions can bring.

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.
