About me

It is not uncommon to reach a point in life where you feel you need to reach out for help and talk about what is going on for you in a safe space without the fear of being judged, not being taken seriously and with someone who is trained to help you.

Talking to family and friends can be a helpful and supportive outlet. However, for many specialist areas they are often not the right people to talk to when reaching out for help and it can be counterproductive causing you to become even more entrenched in the problem that you were trying to deal with and left feeling helpless and in despair.

I offer a welcoming, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to talk and explore any areas of your life that may be causing you to experience psychological and emotional pain in a safe setting. It doesn't matter how problematic your life is or what form the problems or challenges in your life take, if they are causing you to be unhappy then therapy can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have extensive experience at working therapeutically and have worked for the Islington and Camden NHS trust and for a nationwide drug and alcohol charity.

I currently hold an MSc in Addiction Psychology and Counselling and an advanced counselling skills certificate. I have recently made a contribution to the literature in the area of metacognition and technology use.

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.
