About me

Life can be challenging and an upwards struggle; sometimes we find ourselves feeling out of control and unable to cope. Therapy can help gain a better understanding of oneself through identifying the stumbling blocks that seemingly hold us back. It’s an opportunity to look at the things that aren’t working or don’t feel right and think about how we might change them.

I am BACP registered existential-analytic psychotherapeutic counsellor working with individuals and young people in Old Street. My therapy endeavours to help ease emotional pain as well as supporting my clients in working towards living a more fulfilled and rewarding life. I provide a safe, supportive and friendly environment in which to explore difficult feelings to develop your understanding of them.

You will have your own specific needs and expectations of therapy, and this would be our starting point. In our free initial assessment we would discuss what has brought you to therapy at this point in time and what it is you are looking for. We will assess if this is a good fit and if I am the right therapist for you.

If you would like to consider open-ended or short term therapy please do contact me by email or on 07584 222 697.

I have experience working with individuals and young people from many different countries and cultures and ages in the NHS, private and voluntary sectors. Some of the issues I have experience in include:

Abuse, addiction, anger, anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem, feeling sad, self-harm, identity, isolation, depression, stress, health issues, relationship issues, sexuality, grief and trauma.

My approach, whether it be a specific problem or a more complex issue, is to start with the individual.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
