About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist with an extensive knowledge of working with adults undergoing stress, trauma and crises.

I work within minutes of London Bridge Station and the City of London.

I also work from my Hockley practice so please enquire if this is of interest.

I specialise in working with deep trauma and am skilled at tolerating difficult states, such as profound despair, that, for example, intense self hatred can lead us to. When we lose our own value and meaning in life we can spiral into a black hole. Having a skilled ‘other’ with us in those times, that knows such landscape well, can make a world of difference.

That said, there is no problem that is too small, as everything is relative. Many people feel their suffering is not deserving enough of counselling. This is one of the greatest myths of all.

I have special expertise with the following but if your issue is not listed below please contact me to discuss if I can help:

Addiction / Anger Management / Relationship Issues / Work Related Issues / Acute Stress and/or Anxiety / Sexuality and Sexual Issues / Identity Issues / Bereavement and Loss / Depression / Spirituality And Meditation / Lack Of Confidence / Manic Depression / Bipolar Disorder / Generalised Anxiety Disorder / Identity Crisis / Spiritual Crises / Low Self-Esteem / Panic Attacks / Suicidal Feelings / Self-Harm / Feelings Of Terror

I hold a BSc Degree in Psychology, a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling (PGDip), and a Masters in Psychotherapy (MA), the latter two being validated by the University of East London and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I trained at the Psychosynthesis & Education Trust and am a member of the BACP (MBACP) as well as holding full accreditation with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The latter two professional bodies employ a strict code of ethics to ensure the highest standards of practice.

My psychosynthesis training was integrative (drawing from all schools of psychology) and I have a tendency toward depth oriented psychotherapy.

In addition to my private practice I am also Clinical Director of a counselling placement service.

I also periodically assist in training at the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust which runs high quality training programmes for counsellors and psychotherapists.

Member organisations

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.
