About me

Are you feeling anxious or depressed, overwhelmed or unable to cope? Perhaps you are questioning why you keep repeating the same old patterns? You may feel blocked from moving forward, or want to find greater meaning or purpose. Whatever brought you here today, I imagine you are struggling with something important that is impacting your life.

I offer a safe and welcoming space where you can feel heard, respected and valued. My aim is to sensitively help you explore the things you find difficult, for example, patterns of behaviour that no longer serve you, and to connect to your potential. To aid this, creative techniques are used alongside traditional talking therapy. Fundamental to our wellbeing and happiness, our sense of purpose may also be touched into, or even be the focus of the work.

I work one-to-one with adults, providing both short-term, focused work, or longer-term, deeper therapy. We can work in person or online, or use a hybrid approach, depending on your needs. I am experienced in working with a wide range of ages and backgrounds and am welcoming of diversity. It is important to trust and feel safe with your therapist. I offer a free 15-minute initial telephone consultation as an opportunity for us to discuss working together and answer any questions you may have.

My practice is in rooms at The Psychosynthesis Trust at London Bridge (in London), and I also offer sessions online.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust in London (course accredited by the BACP and UKCP). I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
