Given the current situation I am able to offer sessions via Zoom or Skype.
I am a qualified psychodynamic therapist providing a warm, supportive and non-judgmental space for you to bring whatever it is you feel the need to talk about. I am there to listen to you with empathy and to help you think about your feelings, however difficult they may be. I have experience of working with a wide range of issues including:
- difficulties with relationships
- anger issues
- low self-esteem
- feelings of emptiness/meaninglessness
- sexual concerns
- work-related problems
- difficult family relationships
- fertility, pregnancy and parenthood
I am a registered member of the BACP and work under their ethical code. I hold a professional qualification in Psychodynamic Counselling and a previous degree in Psychology and Counselling. I have also completed an MA in Psychoanalytic Studies at the Tavistock Centre.
How therapy can help you
It can be hard trying to cope on your own. Talking to a trained professional helps you make sense of your thoughts and feelings and it means you have somebody on your side while you face difficult times. My approach is psychodynamic, which means I explore with you both your conscious and your unconscious mind in order to facilitate long-lasting change.
Therapy can be arranged to last a set number of sessions if you want to address a specific issue. For more complex problems it may be better to work with an open-ended contract. This means that the therapy continues for as long as you need it. During the first session we decide together what feels most appropriate for you.
Developing personal rapport is important and the initial consultation gives both of us a chance to see if we can work together. It also provides you with the opportunity to bring up any questions or concerns.
My consulting room is located within walking distance of Canada Water, Rotherhithe, Surrey Quays and Bermondsey stations and near bus routes 1, 47, 188, 381, C10 and P12.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
