Due to the current Covid-19 situation, I am currently only working online and on the telephone. I use Zoom and FaceTime.
I offer individual psychotherapy and counselling in Rode (BA11), Bath and Central London.
I have had a private practice in central London since 2005, in Bath since 2013 and in Rode since 2016. Rode is a 10 minute drive from Bradford on Avon, Frome and Trowbridge. From Bath, Rode can be reached within 20-30 minutes depending on which area of Bath you are coming from.
I am a BACP accredited psychotherapist and counsellor.
In order to explore whether we think we could work effectively together, I offer a free initial consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
In addition to my private practice, I have 8 years experience of working in the charity sector. 5 working with those in a suicidal crisis at Maytree - a sanctuary for the suicidal - in north London and 3 as a psychotherapist at the Helen Bamber Foundation where I worked with victims of human cruelty.
Before training to become a psychotherapist, I lived and worked in different parts of the world including: Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, Tokyo, Hong Kong and New York.

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.
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.
