About me

Are you struggling to cope with challenging emotions or circumstances? Have things been building up for a while and you now feel it's time to seek support? Are you feeling stuck or unable to find a way through a difficult situation? Would you like to find a way to strengthen your coping mechanisms and make positive changes?

People come to therapy for many different reasons which may include:-

  • anxiety
  • lack of self confidence
  • depression
  • stress
  • unwanted patterns of behaviour
  • trauma
  • relationship difficulties
  • struggling to cope after separation or divorce
  • managing life transitions such as into parenthood, menopause or retirement

When things are difficult, many people find themselves unwilling or unable to talk to family, friends or colleagues and this is when talking to a trained therapist can really help. 

I provide in-person therapy in London Victoria, central Oxted and online via Zoom, Teams or WhatsApp Video. Our sessions will be a private, confidential, safe place in which to talk about the things that are troubling you. 

In our sessions I will listen with empathy to what is going on for you. I will help you make sense of your emotions, understand the roots of your difficulties and develop greater understanding of your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. This in turn will strengthen your ability to cope and enable you to move towards positive change.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from Middlesex University, having trained at the Minster Centre in London.

‘Integrative’ means that my training included a number of different therapeutic approaches, (e.g. psychodynamic, person-centred, relational, CBT, gestalt). When working with you I will draw upon the most appropriate approach or approaches according to your individual needs and preferences.

Before training and practicing as a therapist, I worked for more than 12 years in marketing and business development in the property and professional services industries. I therefore understand some of the stresses and strains of corporate life and the difficulties that may arise in trying to balance work with other important aspects of your life.

I previously worked at the University of Roehampton, providing short-term counselling to students. I also provided long-term therapy to clients at the Wimbledon Guild and have worked as a telephone adviceline counsellor for an Employee Assistance Provider.

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.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
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.
