About me

We all experience difficulties and challenges in our lives. Sometimes, problems can feel overwhelming, even unbearable. At times, we may feel that we ourselves are the problem.

I offer a non-judgemental, confidential space where, together, we can explore the challenges you face. Some facts of our lives cannot be changed – having happened already or, for example, illness or impending loss.  As your therapist, my aim is to offer you the relationship and support you need to reflect on and be more able to cope with difficult life events. I believe therapy includes developing a deeper understanding of ourselves in the context of past and present experiences, environment and choices. I also believe we all have an innate ability to heal and that therapy can help to remove obstacles in our path – helping us shift from a life where we merely survive to one in which we develop an intention to thrive, despite life’s challenges.

The relationship between us, as therapist and client, is hugely important and after a few sessions together we can review whether you feel I am the right therapist for you. As an Integrative therapist, I draw on a wide range of theories, including recent developments in neurobiology, which help us to understand the relationship between mind, body and our sense of safety and emotional wellbeing. Many clients benefit from developing their ability to notice what is going on in their body and being curious about this. If you feel comfortable, as well as talking, our sessions might include breathing practices, drawing and other creative ways of working that you are willing to experiment with. However, this will always be your choice.

Training, qualifications & experience

Before training as an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I practised as a solicitor in London and lecturer at Law School. I bring to my therapy practice the integration of the professionalism and clarity of thought of my legal career, the focus and communication skills of my teaching and myself, as another human being, with my own life experience. I hold an Msc in Integrative Psychotherapy, a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and a Clinical Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling. I am a registered member of BACP and an accredited member of UKCP.

I work with adults, offering one-to-one counselling, either on a long-term or short-term basis, with each session lasting 50 minutes.  I believe that therapy can be a useful support for any problem.

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.

Key details

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.
