I am an experienced and professional psychotherapist and counsellor offering short and longer term therapy for individual adults and young people at my East and South East London.
I provide a safe, confidential, empathic and non-judgmental environment where you can explore and work through the things that are troubling you in your life. Whatever you may be struggling with counselling can help address the causes and the consequences to help you achieve a more fulfilled life.
Everyone can benefit from counselling at some stage in their life.
If you would like ask any questions prior to arranging the initial consultation please feel free to email or phone me and leave a message on the contract number provided.
At our initial meeting you can get a feel for who I am and how I work, before deciding whether you would like to work with me further.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have varied experience in short and long term counselling. My background is in Integrative Counselling.
My post qualification experience was working for Sanibel Counselling Service, in North East London, in time limited counselling of doctor referrals, working with a diversity of people and cultures. I continued to work for Sanibel Counselling for 12 months after becoming fully qualified. I went on to work for Youthreach, a youth counselling service based in South East London, where I worked with an age group of 14-24 on a long term bases.
This gave me the experience of working with clients both short and long term, enabling me to understand the benefits of both, depending on the individual client and their needs.
I have been running my own private practice for over seven years. I work from two locations in Hackney E8 and one location in Borough SE1.

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.
