About me

I am a BACP accredited integrative psychotherapist, experienced in working with a variety of clients and issues.  I offer a non-judgmental and confidential space where you can explore whatever might be troubling you. My approach is to bring warmth and compassion to my understanding of a range of different psychotherapeutic traditions. 

Living and practising in London means that I work in a culturally informed way, taking into account all the diverse influences which form each of us as human beings. I have experience in working with relationship challenges and family struggles, childhood traumas, stress, anxiety and depression, loss and bereavement issues, self-harm and suicidal thoughts, issues related to ageing, and identity issues. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Integrative counsellor and I have completed my training at The Minster Centre.

In my previous career, I worked with parents of children of all ages, exploring and addressing the challenges that parenting can bring. I have also worked with teenagers and young people and understand the difficulties they face.

Member organisations


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.

My rate is £70 per 50-minute session. 

Further information

I understand that it can be daunting to reach out and ask for help, as well as confusing to work out who might be the right therapist for you. I, therefore, aim to make this process as easy and transparent as possible. As part of this, I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation where we can discuss how you might be feeling at the moment, you can ask questions, and see whether we are the right fit for each other.
