About me

I work as a Child, Adolescent, Parent and Adult Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I am fully registered member of BACP and accredited UKCP member. For the last few years I worked as a Psychotherapist in schools across London alongside my private practice. As a result I have developed my own unique approach to working therapeutically, integrating a variety of different modalities, such as psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) to meet each person’s specific needs and expectations. Each person is an individual and what works for one person in therapy may not necessarily suit someone else.

I understand how to work with children to get beneath words using art, play and sand tray therapy to support the expression of feelings when it is hard to find the words or is difficult to talk about. Teenagers, young people and adults often prefer to talk about their feelings, but also use creative media to express themselves and find them beneficial to my style of therapy.

I work with a wide range of issues which you might come across in your personal, family and work life. When you find yourself “stuck”, unsure about your life direction, unhappy about relationships, generally anxious or worried about your children, I can offer a confidential therapeutic support that will help you to make sense of these emotional and relational experiences.

Through the relationship between us, I aim to help you discover and develop new ways of approaching life; with less influence from the old patterns that have contributed to your distress and suffering in the present.

My work is informed by the latest neuroscientific research, whilst also taking into consideration my clients’ age, cultural and ethnic origins, as well as religious beliefs, sexual orientation and reasons for referral.

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.

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.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

Further information

Getting started:

In the first meeting we will discuss your hopes in therapy and you will have an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about counselling and psychotherapy.
If you’re a parent, or parents, seeking therapy for your child, I will meet with you without your child and we will discuss your concerns in detail. I will ask you about your child’s development and current functioning and explain how I work and how to talk your child about therapy.

You may set up your first appointment by sending me an email with a brief description of your situation together with any other relevant information or questions.

Or call me for a free 20 minute phone consultation where we can briefly discuss the reasons for you seeking counselling or psychotherapy and the best format for this to take place.

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.
