I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist experienced in working with people suffering the unhappiness and or insecurity brought about by personal history, trauma or simply as a result of living and working in pressurized environments. I work with both couples and individuals.
Training, qualifications & experience
I successfully completed the five year training at the school of Psychotherapy and Counselling in both my Masters and the Advanced Diploma. I have been working in two different settings throughout my training firstly working with clients on a short fixed term basis in a Counselling centre in West London and latterly working with clients longer term in an NHS setting at the Munro Centre at Guy's Hospital. I am in the process of training with Relate and have been working with couples since January 2017.
Registered / Accredited

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I understand that finance may be a challenge so I offer therapy at a range of fees and will try to match your counselling needs to your financial situation. Whenever possible I keep some slots available at a lower rate, and I will utilise these for you, if any are available when you contact me, if that is appropriate to your circumstances.
Range of fees for individuals £80.00 for a 50 minute session and for couples £160 for a 75 min session.
