About me

I am a qualified Psychosynthesis therapist and I provide a safe space where you can begin to understand and find ways to cope with your life difficulties, explore your deeper self and invite more self-compassion, acceptance and kindness into your life.

The awareness that you develop can help you understand yourself better, allowing you to make more conscious choices. This in turn can lead to discovering your potential, where your true power lies, and what is your emerging purpose and meaning.

I work from a small therapy practice called E8 Therapy, located in the heart of Dalston, a short walking distance from Dalston Junction. I also offer online and telephone sessions. 


~ ABOUT COUNSELLING ~

You might be seeking counselling because you are suffering from depression or anxiety, or you’re feeling stuck and frustrated. Or perhaps you have experienced a painful life event, such as the breakup of a relationship or loss of a job.

It can be very confusing and frightening to go through these crises, making us aware of our vulnerabilities and often leaving us feeling lonely in our plight.
These crucial periods are where change is inevitable; by considering counselling, you may start developing awareness and the process of healing, allowing yourself the possibility of something new to emerge.

I believe each of us holds our innate wisdom within... Yet, we sometimes need someone else, provided by the therapeutic relationship - to compassionately help us see things more clearly; to deeply listen to us and sometimes challenge us; help us develop trust in our own intuition, intelligence, feelings and choices - leading to more acceptance of ourselves while facing life more maturely and realistically.

~ CONTACT ME TO GET STARTED ~

If you are interested in experiencing what it might be like to work with me, please get in touch on the details above. We can then arrange an initial session to get to know one another and find out whether the support I offer would be beneficial to you.

We will discuss what brings you to therapy and what are your expectations. You can ask me any questions you may have about the process and my approach, and by the end of the initial session we will aim to agree if we would like to continue working together.

If we decide to work together, the ongoing sessions will be 50 minutes long and will be provided on a weekly basis.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling from the Psychosynthesis Trust. The course is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and awarded by Middlesex University.

I am Registered Member MBACP and abide by BACP ethical framework.

I attend regular clinical supervision to support my work, and invest in my continued professional and personal development as a counsellor.

I presently work in private practice.

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.
