About me

I provide therapy over video call and telephone over Zoom as an alternative to meeting face to face.

We're living in uncertain times, and things may feel out of control and worrying. Therapy can help provide grounding and stability, and connect you with what you can control- how you respond to difficult situations, what helps you feel supported and how you can look after yourself and others.

I provide therapy for individuals in a safe, confidential and accepting environment. I work with adults 18 years and up on a short-term or long-term basis depending on your needs. I specialize in working with LGBTQ+ and queer clients and am a proud member of the queer community.


The relationship between counsellor and client is fundamental to therapy. I offer an accepting, understanding and genuine relationship, and a space that is yours. I provide a rare experience of being truly listened to without judgement. In this supportive relationship you can begin to develop a better, kinder relationship to yourself and others.

I am an accredited registered member of the BACP and adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework. This ensures I work responsibly and professionally, and follow the code of conduct outlined in the framework.

My counselling practice is inclusive of all races, genders, sexual orientations, disabilities and religious beliefs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a professionally trained and qualified person-centred humanistic therapist.

I have nearly a decade of experience providing counselling in different settings. I have worked in further education, young adult wellbeing services, and in mental health charities. I currently offer individual counselling in my private practice in central London and at ELOP, a LGBT charity offering a range of wellbeing services in East London. I also run therapy groups and workshops for clients with serious mental health conditions at a homeless charity in the borough of Westminster.

I completed my postgraduate diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy at York St John University, a course that is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Following qualification I have completed various training courses to develop my knowledge further, on subjects including Trauma, Domestic Abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Hoarding, Supporting people who hear voices, and Bereavement.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My room in Haggerston is wheelchair accessible. My room in Angel is accessed by a small step at the front door.
