About me

What I offer:

Based in a welcoming and airy room in Dalston, east London, I offer 60-minute face to face, telephone and Zoom sessions,  and work with clients facing a variety of issues in their lives.

My areas of expertise:

I specialise in relationship difficulties, and working with people who have experienced loss or bereavement.

Loss is part of living, but even though every one of us will encounter it at some point and in some way, that doesn't make it any easier to live through and adjust to when it happens.

And when a relationship is under strain, we can feel confused, trapped or rejected.

Whether you’re grieving for someone who has died, or trying to cope with the end of a relationship, a career setback, retirement, getting older, or a difficult health diagnosis, for instance, you may feel alone and overwhelmed. Even if you have family and friends to turn to, it isn’t always easy or even possible to share your true feelings. And despite what society tells us, there’s no ‘normal’ way to react to loss and no neat and tidy timetable. Talking can help. But who to turn to?  As a qualified and experienced therapist, I'm here to listen to and support you.

What to expect from therapy:

Therapy is a time and space in which you can explore what is distressing you safely, in privacy and confidentiality.  You won't be judged, and you won't be told what you 'should' do.  Together we can explore how to find change, meaning or peace – whatever you’re looking for – in the painful things that happen in life. Trust, warmth, acceptance and empathy are the foundations of my practice.

Free initial Zoom or telephone consultation:  

Please contact me to book a free, no-obligation 20-minute phone or Zoom conversation in which we can discuss how we might be able to work together, and which will give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.

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 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.
