About me

Everyday stress, anxiety and worry can lead one to difficult places. Through a safe and confidential environment one can address these issues and construct meaning around intricate and challenging experiences. Taking the first step, and asking for help is a significant step toward reflecting, understanding and thinking about one's internal world.

I am both a member of the BPS and the BACP; I hold a Bsc in psychology and an MA in psychodynamic therapy. I have NHS experience in both primary and secondary care. I offer psychodynamic therapy in a safe and empathetic environment around Oxford Circus and Clapham. I also offer therapy in Greek.

Over the years, I have seen service users with several issues, including depression, anxiety, bereavement, panic attacks, addictions, gambling issues and eating disorders. Perhaps, in a confidential space- a journey of self exploration could be facilitated by understanding how past relationships and unconscious processes inform the present situation and define us

Training, qualifications & experience

Bsc Psychology, MA psychodynamic therapy (level 7 Practitioner). Experience both in organizational, public and private settings.

Member organisations


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.
