About me

Maybe you struggle with your relationships, experience difficulties at work or feel highly anxious without knowing exactly why. I am an open and approachable integrative therapist who can help you develop new coping strategies and tools, which will enable you move towards greater self-awareness, self-esteem and self-worth leading to a more fulfilled and autonomous life. 

My integrative approach means that I will draw from different modalities, such as person-centred, psychodynamic and Gestalt, which makes your therapy experience unique and led by your individual needs. I am also using Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to challenge automatic negative thoughts and to move away from self-debilitating beliefs. 

I can offer you one-to-one sessions in person or on zoom, where you can freely explore all aspects of your life in a confidential and safe space. Whether you experience anxiety, depression, trauma or you feel that something is just not right, I will support you showing empathy, respect and always be non-judgemental. Together we will explore difficulties from the past and present and how they affect your life. This will lead to new insights and to greater understanding and self-acceptance. I strongly believe that establishing a close and trusting therapeutic relationship creates the platform for beneficial change. 

I have worked in the NHS short-term service. Now, in addition to seeing clients privately, I also work for Mind. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement, postnatal depression, body dysmorphic disorder, ADHD,  OCD, illness, intrusive thoughts, addiction, relationship problems and childhood trauma. I also have experience working with people feeling stuck in their creative process and have helped them to reconnect with their joy and passion. 

I have consulting rooms at three different locations in South West London: Richmond (TW9), East Sheen (SW14) and Clapham (SW4). If you prefer online sessions I use the safe platform Zoom. I have availability now on Thursday evening’s and Friday morning’s between 9am and 12pm in Clapham and on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursday in Richmond.

Please contact me for a free 20-minute consultation to discuss your issues and how therapy may help you. You can also text me or email me for further information.

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.
