About me

COVID-19: In this time of uncertainty, anxiety, and isolation, I am offering Zoom, Skype or FaceTime sessions at a reduced rate for those in need of a therapeutic connection. During this unprecedented time of social distancing, telephone or online therapy allow for therapy sessions to be accessed.

Life at times can be challenging, people can often feel isolated and stuck in their struggles, confused about what to do to change the things in life that are troubling them. Reaching out can be hard, trusting others can feel even more difficult. It's at these times that therapy can make a difference. I am a sex-positive, kink-knowledgeable psychotherapist and am familiar working with a range of relationship models and gender dynamics. I work with people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, including individuals from straight, queer, poly and kink communities, sex workers, and people who identify across the gender spectrum.

I offer psychodynamic psychotherapy to individuals, couples and groups to help with a range of difficult emotions, life-changing decisions, complicated relationship situations and personal identity issues. Whatever your circumstances, I have the experience to help you explore your thoughts and feelings, make sense of your concerns, and find a way forward.

I provide a non-judgemental, supportive and confidential space in the heart of the City of London and online. My practice is quiet, comfortable and discrete. An initial appointment offers you the opportunity to talk about what's on your mind and find out more about how psychotherapy can help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work with clients in Central London facing a broad range of problems including anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, low self esteem, relationship difficulties, phobias, eating disorders, and more.

I hold professional qualifications in psychology and am trained at Master’s level in psychodynamic psychotherapy. I also trained at the WPF Therapy in London, a leading psychodynamic training institute in London.

I am a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), British Psychological Society (BPS), the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I am engaged in continuing training and professional development to ensure that my practice affords the best informed care.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

Online or telephone therapy does not require a specific location or wheelchair access.
