You may be concerned about something which has troubled for many years or perhaps something which has happened more recently. I offer both short term counselling and also longer term psychotherapy depending on your needs. I work with clients on a wide range of difficulties related to relationships, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, mood swings, trauma, bereavement, hopelessness, addictions etc. I believe that psychotherapy is immensely beneficial in uncovering self-limiting beliefs and behavioural patterns (which are usually unconscious) and opening up new ways of thinking, feeling and relating. This can bring about change, personal growth and lead to a much happier, more productive and creative way of being.
I am a fully qualified, experienced and accredited psychotherapist and I provide a safe, confidential and supportive space for you to think about and work through your difficulties. I work both for the NHS and also in private practice at London Bridge in central London and in Crouch End, in north London. At the present time all sessions are provided through online video sessions (Skype/Zoom).
If you would like to take the next step, feel free to contact me to arrange an initial consultation. You can also find further information at https://londontherapyhub.uk
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a psychotherapist at The Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF) in London and I have a Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice accredited by Roehampton University. I have also undertaken further training to provide counselling for NHS clients and specialised training to provide counselling to prisoners at Young Offenders Institutions.
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.
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.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
