About me

My role is to help you make sense of the issues that have led you to seek therapy. I do this by providing a safe place for you to bring the concerns that are troubling you, helping you to explore your thoughts, experiences and feelings, some of which may feel overwhelming.

Together we work to consider both your presenting symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, as well as their possible underlying causes, thinking about your present situation to see how it may be connected to events from the past.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist. I undertook my professional training at WPF Therapy, one of the leading academic and clinical institutions in the UK and practiced for several years within the WPF Therapy clinic in London. I am a registered member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and the FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and follow their strict ethical codes and professional standards of confidentiality and practice.

I also trained and worked as a Samaritan providing support to people who were distressed, despairing or suicidal.

Before practising as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked for many years in business and have an awareness of how challenging and demanding working life can be.

Accessibility

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.
