About me

Whatever the nature or extent of your difficulties, I offer a safe space where you can talk in confidence and without being judged.

Faced with so many different forms of psychotherapy and counselling, it can be difficult knowing how or where to start. Added to that, the prospect of talking to someone about personal or painful feelings will probably feel daunting. The initial consultation can be useful in giving you a sense of whether ongoing sessions will be helpful/appropriate.

I am an experienced psychotherapist providing both open-ended and time-limited psychotherapy/counselling. I work from a psychodynamic perspective. This means that I attach importance not only to current experiences and ways of relating, but also to how these may be linked to earlier experiences - understanding the underlying nature of the behaviour and emotions which are causing difficulty or distress can help to relieve suffering and open up the possibility for change.

I work from a comfortable consulting room situated very close to Victoria underground and mainline stations. Do get in touch by email or telephone if you'd like to arrange an initial meeting, or if you have any questions. All enquiries are dealt with in the strictest confidence.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at WPF Therapy, one of the country's leading and most highly respected training institutions. As a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), the FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council), I am bound by strict ethical and professional codes of conduct. I have many years of clinical experience.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
