About me

Are you struggling with depression, anxiety or work stress? Maybe you’ve been diagnosed with ADHD or ASD,  resorting to unhelpful coping strategies, such as problematic drug or alcohol use, repeating difficult relationship patterns, finding it hard to trust  or feeling unhappy in general,  like you are not living to your full potential? You  might be searching for a meaning and wondering about the purpose of your life, after a significant loss.

 Our sessions could be a safe space to talk about those issues and to find a way forward. You will be really listened to and accepted for who you are. The aim is to help you find a way to feel happier, more secure and connected, to help you increase your emotional resilience and improve your relationships with others. This journey might sometimes be challenging,  but it is always a rewarding one. 

I also welcome individuals, going through bereavement,  including bereavement by suicide and loss of a child of any age. 

I am integrating various approaches, depending on the issue that brings you to therapy  and what might work best for you. We will often explore your attachment history and the relationships you have with others today.

I am registered with the BACP and adhere to their Ethical Framework.

Sessions are 50 minutes long and we will agree together on either shorter (6-12 sessions) or longer term counselling, depending on your needs and preferences.

We could meet in person or online. 
I am working from Clapham and Central London, or online via Zoom. 

Please email or call to discuss how can I help you.

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.
