About me

Sometimes things come up in life that can be difficult to manage and it can feel stressful and overwhelming. Being able to have someone to talk to can help with resolving difficulties and feeling better.

I provide a safe, confidential, warm and approachable space for children, young people, adults and older adults to help alleviate distressing feelings.


Jasmin is an experienced therapist with over 16 years of working in clinical psychology services in the NHS with people across the life span.

As a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (BABCP accredited) and Psychologist, she works privately, offering both long and short term therapy. She has previously worked in a Specialist London Child & Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) NHS and GP Practice at the Victoria Medical Centre. She currently works in an Early Intervention Service in the NHS and private practice.

Her expertise are in working therapeutically with children, young people, adults and their families experiencing social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Jasmin's experience includes helping children, adolescents and parents alleviate distress from anxieties and stress, such as social anxiety, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic, generalised anxiety, selective mutism, trauma, low mood, depression and psychosis. She also provides support in helping to overcome difficulties in relationships, school and work based worries, emotional regulation, and adjustment to life circumstances. In addition, she has worked with adults experiencing more complex difficulties including compulsive hoarding, and older adults with memory impairment, anxiety and depression.

Jasmin is trained in using the most up-to date and recent evidenced-base intervention in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). She also integrates therapies in Mindfulness, Counselling, Compassion-Focussed approach, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Systemic and Family approaches, and skills from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to help manage distressing and overwhelming experiences.

Member organisations

British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)

The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists. BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
