I am a psychotherapist and psychodynamic counsellor working in East London. I offer a therapeutic space in which we can work collaboratively to better understand what might be troubling you and start to find a way forward.
There could be a particular issue you would like help with or an event in your life that you wish to think more about. Sometimes it is hard to understand why we feel as we do, we just know that something is not right. At these times it can seem challenging to know where to seek help.
In my practice I provide a non-judgemental, supportive environment in which you can start to talk about your life. Working together we can build a therapeutic relationship based on trust and respect. In this way new perspectives can open up and a better understanding of confusing feelings and patterns of behaviour can emerge.
I begin with arranging an initial meeting, during which we can start a conversation, think about what has brought you to therapy and how we might work together.

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.

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).
