About me

My name is Irit, and I am a Transactional Analysis psychotherapeutic counsellor based in Greenwich.

My goal is to open up space for you where you can talk about anything in the world and never feel judged. I offer a safe place where you don’t need to be concerned about being right or perfect.

I endeavour to always to be congruent and consistently provide boundaries for a confidential therapeutic relationship.

In my practice, I tailor a number of approaches from various models to suit your individual needs offering short-term counselling to deal with a specific issue as well as longer, more open-ended work.

I respect that each person experiences events differently depending on various influences from their past experiences, relationships, cultural background and the context in which we live.

Many people find Relational Transactional Analysis therapy appealing as it promotes a unique and equal relationship between client and therapist.

In my Approach, I believe that everyone can have the capacity to decide what they want in life. Therapy will help you recognize your worth and regain control in order to achieve your goals.

Member organisations


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.

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.
