About me

I provide a supportive, warm and confidential safe space together with an understanding of how stressful and uncomfortable it can be entering into personal therapy. My areas of interest include working with depression and anxiety and self-esteem issues. Also eating disorders and communication issues. I work using a Psychodynamic modality, which enables me to identify and understand attachment styles and patterns of thought and behaviour in each individual client. I use this approach to enable my clients to develop a greater understanding of self-awareness and resilience, helping them to reach their full potential.

I come from a background of working in business, in administrational and operational roles living and working in London and New York. I have worked predominantly within management consulting, publishing and legal sectors. This has provided me with an understanding of workplace issues including, experiences of pressure and identifying conflict and managing emotions and stress.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a Level 5 Foundation Degree in Pscychodynamic Counselling with distinction and am currently studying in my final year to complete a BA (Hons) in Counselling. I have experience of working with long-term clients as part of the Low Cost service at The Awareness Centre in Clapham and in my own private practice. I am a registered member of the BACP and I am guided by their ethical framework as part of my practice.

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.
