About me

My way of working is to enable you to explore feelings and emotions in a safe, containing environment whilst facilitating you to make sense of your past experiences.

My approach is Psychodynamic which means I look at how past experiences has influenced you in the present. By unravelling and understanding what you bring to the sessions, deep-rooted thoughts and feelings can be explored and resolved.

I specialised in cross-cultural relationships and issues with specific understanding of Asian backgrounds and heritage.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Psychodynamic Therapist and an Accredited Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).

I hold a BACP Accredited Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy from the Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy & Counselling. I also hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology from University College London.

I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, and my work adheres to their strict professional standards

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.

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.

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.

There are ground floor therapy rooms and accessible toilets at my Finsbury Park and Greenwich practices.
