About me

Welcome! It’s not easy to find a therapist that you can trust and that can help you tackle the difficulties you are facing. It’s very important for you to feel welcomed at first, because it’s not easy to open your heart to someone you don’t know. I offer a confidential, warm, empathic and non-judgmental psychodynamic approach while addressing a broad range of mental health issues, personal and relationship difficulties. When you first come to see me, we will discuss your unique needs and your individual requirements and then I provide you with a space and support to deepen your understanding of yourself in your journey which is going to help you to reconnect with your true-self and with your social environment. I have worked with wide range of people of all ages and different backgrounds.

I am specially trained in working with children and adolescents having qualified through Birkbeck, University of London and now offer counselling for parents. I worked with children as a school counsellor so I am experienced with autism, ADHD, eating disorders and behaviour issues. I am very passionate to support parents/carers of loved ones who suffer with these difficult issues. When children are suffering with difficulties, often the parents don’t look after themselves or they don’t have time to look after themselves. In my own experience, self-care, including therapy helps us to reconnect, improves our consciousness and enables us to support our loved ones in a better way. Therefore we learn to connect to ourselves and with our family.

I worked as a Counsellor for the Refuge Therapy Centre in London for over 3 years where I worked with trauma and post-trauma stress related issues in men. Additionally, I facilitated and supported a refugee women’s group in long term therapy with psychosomatic issues and trauma.

Member organisations


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.

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.
