I offer counselling and therapy services online and in Central London. I work collaboratively and empathically with clients to understand their current difficulties, explore contextual and relationship challenges, improve emotional coping skills, and help clients to choose and start moving their life in valued directions.
My approach to therapy is integrative, drawing primarily on mindfulness (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and compassion-focused therapies. Working with individuals and groups in the NHS and Mind has given me experience in helping clients with a wide range of mental health difficulties. I have lived experience of mental health difficulties which enables me to have a deep level of empathy and practical approach to mental health recovery.
I am an associate for the Compassion Focused Therapy group Balanced Minds. I have regular supervision with world-class supervisors such as Dr Chris Irons (for CFT), Dr Patricia Zurita Ona and Dr John Forsyth (for ACT).
During the current pandemic, I am offering online (Skype, Zoom etc) and telephone therapy.

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.
