About me

COVID-19 UPDATE

Please note that due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, I will temporarily be seeing all clients via online video services to prevent the spread of infections in line with NHS and government recommendations.

I am an experienced, fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist. I work with Couples, offering couple relationship counselling and individuals offering psychodynamic psychotherapy.

I specialise in problems with relationships, whether that be with a partner, parent or with a colleague...Issues with communication can often be the thing that brings people to therapy.

Feelings of anxiety, depression or mixed emotions can be talked about in a totally confidential setting.

In my work with individuals and couples, I focus on everyday interactions and conflicts, recurrent behaviour patterns, and the links to the past which help to understand them. Together we explore the conscious dynamics at play and listen for the less conscious material which might emerge and enable you to move on.

Weekly sessions take place in a comfortable and safe environment, where mutual trust allows words to be spoken and fears, often hidden, to be overcome.

I offer weekly sessions currently in Old Street, East London. A short walk from Old street tube.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at Tavistock Relationships (TR) in London as a relationship counsellor, there I gained a post-graduate diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy for individuals and couples.

I then went on to gain a Masters (MA) in psychodynamic psychotherapy for couples. During this intensive training and becoming a fully qualified couple psychotherapist and relationship counsellor I gained knowledge and experience in working with psychosexual issues in individuals and couple relationships.

I am a fully registered member of BACP and adhere to their code of ethics and confidentiality.

I work in private practice and at Tavistock Relationships, in central London, as a visiting clinician.

I am also able to offer Mentalization based therapy for clients that may benefit from a shorter time-limited therapeutic approach. I am able to offer on line therapy for couples and individuals via Skype and Zoom.

Member organisations

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.
