About me

"Know thyself" is an ancient aphorism that encourages individuals to explore and gain a deeper understanding of themselves. The phrase dates back to ancient Greece, where it was inscribed on the Temple of Apollo at Delphi. At its core, "know thyself" is a call to introspection, self-awareness, and personal growth. It encourages you to look within, explore your thoughts and emotions, and gain insight into their motivations, values, and beliefs. By knowing yourself, you can better understand your strengths and weaknesses, make more informed choices, and live a more authentic and fulfilling life. "Know thyself" is a timeless reminder that self-exploration is vital to personal growth and a key to living a meaningful and purposeful life.

I’m a licensed MBACP Psychotherapist with a master's in psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent's University based in London and Surrey. I am an Integrative Psychotherapist. Being an integrative psychotherapist means I will tailor our sessions to your needs and draw from a range of approaches to work creatively with you and act as a catalyst for new perspectives to emerge.

Psychotherapy is a place that is private, confidential and non-judgemental. This place is based on reflection, meaning and self-awareness; it's not just talking; it's thinking. Psychotherapy for depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, grief, menopause, ageing, man's issues, sexual issues, cultural identity, relationships and family issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have provided several specialised therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences in the private clinic and through working in the NHS, including in a specialised trauma clinic at South London and Maudsley Hospital and local community mental health charities such as Cruse Bereavement and Mind UK.

Patient well-being is my number one priority. Email me today for more information or visit my website. 


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.
