About me

Are your negative thoughts and feelings leaving you feeling stuck, anxious and depressed? Is this affecting the way you relate to others whether in your relationship, at work or in any other areas of your life?

 Nothing is more exhausting than battling with overwhelming feelings every day and not knowing what to do with them. 

With over 15 years of experience in both NHS and private practice, you can trust that you’ll be in a supportive environment with me, where you can explore any difficulty or distressing feeling you’re facing without fear of judgment.

When we suffer from anxiety, depression or other negative thoughts and feelings, everything becomes overwhelming. We can go into a spiral, not being able to think properly about what is really going on. This affects our self-esteem and we get stuck and trapped in negativity.

How do we work together: 

I understand how anxiety-provoking starting therapy can be, so it’s important that you feel comfortable with me. I make sure our sessions are designed just for you, matching your needs and pace. My goal is to help you feel more secure, confident, and at ease in your own skin. 

In our work together,

. You will get to understand your negative patterns and coping strategies so that you can free yourself from anxiety, stuckness and negative emotions.

. Transform your relationship dynamics so you can begin to improve. 

. Feel more secure and confident as your self-esteem builds. 

. You manage to establish boundaries and effectively handle the expectations of others.

As children we develop patterns of behavior and coping strategies to protect us against difficult emotions. However, as adults these patterns become destructive and affect us at an unconscious level. For instance, we begin to have problems relating to people, our relationships break, we find it difficult to function at work, we become anxious or depressed, we may develop eating disorder, use alcohol, drugs or succumb to any other type of addiction, etc.

As a result, you may be experiencing:

 • anger

 • low self-esteem

 • a sense of feeling stuck, confused or anxious, whether in your job, relationship or other aspect of your life

 • over-sensitivity and anxiety much of the time

 • a feeling of being overwhelmed or out of control

 • negative thoughts that can spiral out of control

 • feelings of helplessness

 • self-blame or guilt

 • difficulty sleeping

 • depressed moods and lack of motivation

 • lack of purpose and difficulty making decisions

 • relationship difficulties - either clinging to a bad relationship or allowing a good one to spiral out of control

 • career difficulties - finding yourself stuck in a job that you don't like or not being able to find a job suited to your skills and potential.

If you’re feeling hesitant to invest in Counselling:

Just consider how seeking counseling isn’t just for you but it is a way to equip yourself to be more present and attentive in your roles within your relationships.

My Experience:

For many years after completing my studies as a psychotherapist in WPF Therapy, one of the UK’s leading institutions for academic and clinical practice, I have worked within the NHS and in private practice with individuals experiencing various psychological issues, such as:"

. Depression

. Anxiety And Panic Attacks

. Addiction (Sexual, drugs, Gambling, etc.)

. Sexual Abuse

. Eating Disorder

. Trauma

Many of whom suffered from Low Self-Esteem. 

The next step:

You can have the first session just to see if it's right for you; it doesn’t commit you to anything. It’s a step to get to know me and to understand how you can benefit and grow. 

Whenever you feel ready, you are welcome to contact or text me on 07392022771 to have a free 15 minutes chat or book an initial consultation to see how we can work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have gone through a five year intensive psychotherapy training at WPF, one of the leading training centres for psychotherapists in the country. I hold a Post-graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from Roehampton University. 

I have worked as a psychotherapist in NHS Homerton psychotherapy unit for several years. I have done a great deal of research in mental health. I have also worked within WPF Therapy and Private Practice.

I have also volunteered for the Samaritans providing emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress, despair or suicidal thoughts.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their ethics, standards and practices.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
