I am a qualified, integrative psychotherapist working in Central London. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, addiction, bereavement, relational issues, and trauma.
Training, qualifications & experience
There are times when things happen in life that prompt us to reach out. Sometimes we are disturbed by traumatic events outside our control. Often, our bodies are held hostage by anxiety, depression or fear, and it is this that prompts us to seek help. It may be that we feel stuck in a cycle of behaviour we can't seem to get out of, or we may be confused by our feelings or actions, and want to understand ourselves better.
Given the right conditions, we thrive, as human beings, and can experience a sense of freedom, inner peace and joy. I work to offer those conditions and make it possible to think about the things you find distressing or difficult, and, ultimately, together, to work with them, and remove the blocks that are stopping you leading the kind of life you want to.
Being qualified as an integrative psychotherapist means I draw on a variety of schools of thought, and methodologies, and this enables me to tailor therapy to each, individual client. Therapy should be bespoke: we are all unique.
I trained at the Minster Centre, in Queen's Park, and am a BACP member.
I have had experience working with:
- Childhood sexual abuse
- Domestic abuse
- Relationship difficulties
- Issues of diversity and difference.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Sessions usually take place on a weekly basis. I charge a basic fee of £60 for one-to-one sessions and £80 for couples.
Online sessions are £60.
During this initial consultation we can talk about any questions you might have about either practical matters, or the process of psychotherapy. I offer one-to-one therapy for adults.
