About me

Perhaps you feel stuck, find yourself in the middle of a crisis, or you want a space in which to examine and reflect on your own story and what has brought you to the point you're at now. Perhaps you want to see if there is another way of telling your story. My intention is to grow a unique and collaborative relationship with you. We may work on your present situation as well as the whole of your history. Putting it as simply as I can: I provide a confidential space in which you’ll be able to talk openly about what’s troubling you; a space in which to reflect, process, feel, and be yourself (or perhaps learn for the first time how to truly be yourself.) The confidential space that therapy provides can bring healing of old patterns and wounds.

I have been where you are now: thinking about reaching out for therapy. It is my own wounds and periods of suffering and the growth that arose from those moments that have drawn me to this work.

I work one-to-one with adults, offering face-to-face appointments at a Central London location (within easy walking distance of Euston and King's Cross stations), and also online appointments via Zoom.  I see clients for both short-term and long-term work.
Our first appointment will be an opportunity to tell me what brings you to therapy, what your hopes and expectations are, and you can of course ask me any questions you have. We can then together come to a decision as to whether we can and want to work together.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Integrative) from the Mary Ward Centre in London and am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I have been working one-to-one with clients for 2 years and am also the counselling lead for a community counselling project in South London.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
