Psychotherapist/Counsellor MSc, BPC, MBACP (Accred.)

About me

I offer confidential face to face counselling and psychotherapy to individuals. I work in the City (Near to Chancery Lane,St.Paul's and Farringdon) and in Muswell Hill. I am a full accredited member of the BACP and adhere to their code of ethics. I also am a registered member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council)

My aim is to help people to gain a greater understanding of why they feel the way they do, and as a consequence manage their lives differently. Powerful feelings of sadness, worthlessness, self hatred, emptiness, disconnection and inadequacy can impact on our relationships, work and our sense of self.

Therapy is intended to help people understand and make sense of their own histories and the person that they are. By getting to know and accept our real selves we have a better chance of having more realistic and satisfying relationships with others. Connecting with our feelings and patterns of behaviour, may also mean we avoid destructive and unhelpful relationships and ways of living in the future.

I am able to work long term with clients or on a short-term basis with a focus.

Alongside my private practice, I am a partner in Healthy Minds at Work consultancy. I have worked as Psychotherapist within the NHS and in the Student Counselling Service of a leading London university.

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.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

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.

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.

Further information

Why should I choose psychotherapy?

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist which means that I work with clients to make sense of their issues and difficult feelings. This involves trying to explore the relationship between thoughts and actions. It provides the chance to examine problematic behaviour patterns, with a view to helping you make changes. Therapy can offer you time to talk, space to think and an opportunity to explore and make decisions in a safe environment.

What are the benefits of therapy?

Counselling or psychotherapy sessions provide a regular time and space in which to share, explore and understand the nature of your problem or difficulties, along with associated feelings, thoughts and behaviour. Therapy is not the same as giving advice. The counsellor or therapist is there to help you identify and understand more clearly what is bothering you. They can help you to gain a different perspective on yourself and/or your problems and aid you in making choices and changes that feel right for you. All sessions are confidential and provide a safe space to explore and discuss difficult and sometimes hard to say issues. You can benefit enormously from the opportunity to share what you want to talk about with a dedicated person who is able to really listen to you. This can be a very powerful experience.

What kind of problems can I bring to counselling?

Anything that is worrying you and disrupting your normal work, study or personal life can be talked over in counselling. This may be related to your relationships including with family, friends, work colleagues and partners. Difficulties related to life events such as the birth of a child, divorce and bereavement may also be a key source of anxiety.
