As a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where I can help you gain insight into the less conscious aspects of your thinking, behaviour and feelings. Primarily, I offer longer term psychotherapy where we can work together to disentangle deeper rooted difficulties which may have built up over time as a result of your earliest experiences. Under certain circumstances, I can also offer brief focused counselling where we can address a current difficulty.
I specialise in relationship issues. Alongside my core qualification as a psychotherapist and counsellor working with individuals, I also trained in the area of organisational dynamics, which means as well as helping you gain insight into your home and personal relationships I can also help you think about difficulties you may be experiencing in your professional life.
Alongside my private practice I work as a psychotherapist in an NHS hospital and previously have worked as a counsellor for Mind and The West London Counselling Centre. I have worked with individuals with a broad spectrum of needs ranging from bereavement counselling to working in a psychiatric hospital with individuals presenting with personality disorders.
My private consulting rooms are located in Highbury and Islington N5 and Bloomsbury WC1.
I can offer sessions for people who need wheelchair access.
I would welcome you contacting me by email or by phone on 07776 216456 to arrange a time for me to call you.

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
