I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist.
I see clients privately online, and in person in my room near London Bridge, London SE1. I also work in a practice in providing counselling and therapy for professional service firms in the City.
My clients come from all walks of life and from all backgrounds. What they have in common is that they are experiencing issues which leave them either struggling to make sense of their lives, or perhaps unable to fully engage with and experience their lives.
Working in a psychodynamic way, and either on a short or long term basis, my aim is to help my clients achieve a greater awareness of themselves, and better understanding of the way in which their past may be impacting on their present, and indeed their future. With awareness and understanding comes the possibility of change.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy from Birkbeck College, University of London
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I work to their code of ethics.
Prior to training as a therapist I worked for many years as a solicitor with West End and City firms, and indeed continue to operate a specialist, boutique commercial law practice.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
