About me

Taking the first step by asking for help is a significant and courageous moment. I am an experienced qualified psychotherapist, for almost a decade I have conducted psychotherapy groups and offered psychodynamic therapy to individuals within the NHS. I am a registered BACP psychotherapist, a group work practitioner and an Associate Member of the Institute of Group Analysis.

I have worked with a wide range of patients within the NHS with diverse issues. I employ different modalities of therapy including: psychodynamic individual, couples, family, or group therapy, and offer a short course of treatment or work in a longer term open-ended manner.

I provide a safe and confidential space for you to explore the challenges you face, develop a better understanding of yourself, deepen your connection to others and the opportunity to increase your capacity for creativity and enjoyment. Should you wish to explore the possibility of working together please do not hesitate to contact me; I offer a 20 minute telephone consultation without charge.

I run my practice from two different locations, I have rooms in Primrose Hill and Marylebone. I also offer online psychotherapy via zoom or telephone sessions, so no matter where you are located you can access treatment.

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.
