About me

I work in helping people with anxiety and depression, addictions, relationships and other counselling issues, in a solution-focussed way as a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) Accredited Contemporary Psychotherapist. Contemporary Psychotherapy is an approach that combines and utilises the main effective models of psychotherapy to rapidly assess your situation and therapeutic needs, and define your desired outcomes. The timeframe to achieve your outcomes is appropriate to you and your needs, and is flexible to allow attendance in patterns different from the traditional same time every week.

My personal approach is down-to-earth, clear and reassuring; I aim to explain things in an engaging and understandable manner. The therapy aims to activate your own inner resources, as well as highlighting external resources you may have overlooked and could make more use of. This means that while there is a typically a focus on making changes in the present, the contribution and influence of the past is acknowledged and growth and healing are fostered through an appropriate attention to past events and relationships.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked in private practice for 12 years in east and central London, and also worked for over four years as counsellor for a GP practice in west London, working with a very diverse and challenging range of GP patients, providing invaluable clinical experience.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

There are stairs at both of the east London locations.


Monday to Friday, 9am to 8pm, appointments often available at short notice.
