About me

I offer a comfortable and private space in a professional psychotherapy practice within easy walking distance of Wandsworth Town station.

It could be that you're considering therapy and have some understanding of what might be affecting you, recognise reoccurring patterns of behaviour and situations, or you're not sure, but just know that something isn’t quite right.

Talking to someone in a safe and supportive environment can help.  It provides the space to help you create meaning and deeper understanding of yourself and your situation.  The ability to express and understand ourselves better can offer a great deal of relief, reduce isolation and help us feel supported.

I have a collaborative approach and emphasise the importance of the therapeutic relationship between patient and therapist. I view the therapeutic relationship as not only being a source of support but also a source of self knowledge. This is because the difficulties experienced by the patient can manifest in the room with the therapist.  This is very common and also very helpful as it is an opportunity to explore them in a safe and supportive environment.  It is also central to creating long lasting and meaningful change.

I offer once to twice weekly sessions on an open-ended or short-term basis.

The first step if you're considering therapy is to set up a first meeting, also known as an assessment session.  This session will be an opportunity for us to meet and also talk through your concerns. If you would like to speak about your concerns first by telephone please contact me and we can arrange a mutually convenient time to have a brief conversation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Graduate Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Westminster Pastoral Foundation and a Diploma in Integrative Counselling (PGDip), which is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am also a post trainee member of the Society of Analytical Psychology.

I am also a member of the BACP which is one of the main professional bodies that continuously regulate the standards of the profession.  I therefore adhere to their code of ethics and work in the strictest of confidence.

I have had further training with the Westminster Drug Project which provides an extensive range of support for people with substance abuse and addictive behaviour.  I also have training and experience of working with people in emotional distress and feeling suicidal.
