I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. I have trained in a range of differing ways of working, and draw on the aspects of each that are best suited to clients’ presenting needs.
I'm an experienced, qualified and accredited practitioner. I am committed to providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where clients can feel met and heard.
I aim to work with clients in a warm, supportive, and naturally engaging way. I believe everyone is unique in their own experience and ways of being in the world. I see the work of therapy as a mutual and co-creative endeavour.
My years of experience of working as a therapist have taught me that every person has the capacity for healing, learning and growing when the circumstances feel right enough for these things to happen for them in a natural and intuitive way.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at Regent’s University, graduating with a diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling in 2008 and gaining an MA in 2012.
I have 14 years’ experience working as a therapist, practicing in a variety of settings including university/student services, addictions treatment centres and in NHS Primary Care.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Presently, I work as a senior NHS psychotherapist alongside my private practice at St Margaret’s House here in Bethnal Green.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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 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).
