About me

I am an experienced BACP Accredited Psychotherapist, Trauma Therapist and Specialist Fertility Counsellor, specialising in working with women. I currently work in private practice, and prior to this, I worked in Primary Care and the NHS for over 15 years as a psychotherapist.

I specialise in working with women who have experienced trauma and other distressing life events, and also women who are struggling with infertility, baby loss and childlessness. I provide specialised infertility counselling, trauma therapy, as well as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

I am passionate about supporting women. My aim is to provide a non-judgemental space where you will eventually feel safe enough to open up, talk and work through the difficulties you are experiencing.

Free telephone consultation

The first step towards change is to find the right therapist. Whatever you’re struggling with, I am happy to explore with you how I can be of help. I offer a free 20 min telephone consultation. This will be an opportunity for us to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and for you to get a sense of me and how I work. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

If after our telephone consultation we decide that it would be helpful to meet, the next stage of the process will be a face to face initial consultation where we can discuss your needs in more detail and how we can work together.

Location

I am based in my own private consulting room which is located in the Hackney, Mare Street, E8 area. 

In addition to face-to-face sessions, I also offer the option of online and telephone therapy sessions.

Please feel free to contact me with any queries.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
