About me

***Important updates: I am offering Supervision sessions while I am completing my training in Integrative Transpersonal Supervision at the Psychosynthesis Trust in London***

My practice in brief
What can you expect from me? A relationship, essentially. I truly believe in creating a relationship that works for you, that can support you in becoming more who you are. I believe the journey together leads towards more authenticity and more psychological freedom. It is an exciting exploration of what really matters to you, particularly what has been neglected so far. My Psychosynthesis practice blends the attention on issues in the here-and-now and the focus on what is trying to emerge, how you have been in the world, and what has impacted the expression of your full potential and fulfilment.

Whoever you are, you’re welcome here, whether you look for a space to offload what’s on your chest or perhaps you are just tired to pretend everything is fine. Together we can look at what is causing you pain, where is it coming from, and what impact it is having on your day-to-day life. I offer a space where everyone is welcome and accepted.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP registered  Psychosynthesis therapist and I also co-facilitate workshops at the Psychosynthesis Trust for counsellors in training. I dedicate my time volunteering with organisations supporting Covid19 Emergency, and supporting vulnerable young adults. At present, I also work as an external moderator ensuring the assessment of Counselling training is valid, reliable, fit for purpose and inclusive.

I had many careers until I found the one I know is for me. Before that, I have worked in media and communication corporations for nearly two decades. I was part of the music and performing industry, and worked a few years in education. 

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
