Online Counselling Therapy

About me

Specialised, online counselling and coaching. Free initial consultation session.

You may be feeling Anxious, depressed or just feeling bad in your day to day life. You might have a clear idea of what is causing the pain, or you might not have been able to pinpoint where all this started. These difficulties can affect your work, your family life and your relationships with others. Talking to a qualified professional can help you resolve your problems.

Whatever you are going through now, in our sessions, we will make sense of the confusion and work together to allow you to move beyond these difficulties. We will work out where they started and why and from there, how we can move forward to a less painful, happier, more content place.

I work with adults, exclusively online and am specialised in this area. I have  postgraduate training in online work and have experience with clients from multiple continents, backgrounds, gender identities and presenting issues. I combine a client led approach in which my clients decide for themselves what they wish to work on (offering advice if asked) with psychodynamic principles, cognitive-behavioural techniques and evidenced-based science, all carefully adapted for online work.

Because it is impossible to understand what a session will be like by reading a statement like this one, I offer a free initial consultation session to every client so that they can see for themselves what working with me is like and decide if it will be helpful for them.

Training, qualifications & experience

Work Experience

I have worked for many years with the UK's National Health Service (NHS). I delivered long term psychodynamic therapy at St Pancreas Hospital and then later, in the Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies scheme delivering targeted, short-term, evidence-based therapies in South London.

I set up in private practice so that I could offer longer-term, in-depth therapies to clients which is often not allowed on the NHS. I specialise in Online work as this allows me to reach and help a wide and diverse audience, without geography being a constraint. I studied postgraduate to further specialise in Online therapies and coaching and have adapted my style to the video chat and text-based systems used online.

I have now worked with people across multiple continents, time zones, backgrounds, identities and presenting issues.

Member organisations


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.
