About me

I am  a qualified Psychodynamic Therapist , I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy  from Birkbeck College (University of London) and am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and  Psychotherapists (BACP).

I have broad  professional  knowledge and experience in both physical and mental health conditions.   I am a registered nurse with Nursing and Midwifery Council and worked for many years at NHS teaching hospitals, my final nursing  post was  Sister in Charge of  the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Kings College Hospital,before I am also  a qualified Nurse Tutor, and my teaching career included teaching student nurses at Kings College Hospital School of Nursing and later  as a Senior University Lecturer at Kingston University and St. Georges Medical School

.I qualified as a psychodynamic Psychotherapist in 2009, since qualification   my clinical experience has included  working at  NHS Psychotherapy Departments,  at   East London   NHS  TRUST and South London and Maudsley ( SLAM), as well as the  Students Counselling Services at Kings College University London

I offer my clients  a therapeutic space  to explore any issues that are troubling them and  want to work on in therapy; together we will explore the  origins of present difficulties and   patterns of behaviour, and  dynamics in  relationships  that might be repetitive , occurring time and again. I work with my clients to   bring to awareness of the blind spots  , and try to find together an alternative view of oneself and others.

The initial session   will be a consultation to give  the client  an opportunity to talk confidentially  about the issues they want to address in therapy, as well decide if this is the right  therapy to proceed.

I work ethically and non judgementally , abiding  by the (BACP)   code of conduct.

I am a fully insured practitioner. I  attend weekly supervision  clinical supervision with a senior psychoanalyst.

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.
