About me

I believe that the essence of therapy is to provide a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment in which together we can explore the past experiences, current difficulties and future possibilities.

Considering psychotherapy and counselling and taking the first step in deciding which therapist to approach, can bring its own anxiety.

After an initial consultation, we can begin to see if I am the right counsellor and approach for you. I work on an individual basis, it is only by my listening to you and being along side you, that we can begin to develop an understanding of the internal perceptions and their meanings for you.

I work psychodynamically which means that through listening to the thoughts and feelings that you may begin to express, that together we can understand and uncover the more hidden or unconscious meanings.

Once you have decided to continue meeting with me for counselling, we would meet weekly at an agreed fixed time, and day which will be held for you.

I am based in the West End of London in Devonshire Street and am available Monday to Thursday from 9-8pm.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained for three years as a Psychodynamic Counsellor at Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling. I began and continue a placement at the London Clinic where I am referred patients on a one to one, open ended basis and uphold the BACP code of ethics with whom I am registered.

I am a qualified Cognitive Hypnotherapist specialising in Fertility issues as well as an NLP practitioner. I trained at Regents College and am a member of the National Council of Hypnotherapists whose code of Ethics I uphold.

I am also a member of the Institute of Group Analysis of which I am training.

I volunteered at St John's and Elizabeth Hospice for a year and have now opened a Private Practice in the West End where I offer rooms for other Therapists to rent.

Member organisations

BACP

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

An area that I feel very passionate is facilitating small groups for new parents-to-be, from pregnancy to parenting. The objective being, to address the subject of attachment in the early stages of pregnancy and in the first year of the baby’s life. The hope is for baby to develop a good enough attachment with both parents and parents to develop an awareness of their own experiences and how might feed into their parenting style.

The object is to reduce the issues I often see with adults who have not sufficiently been contained in the early years or feel unable to recover from abandoned feelings and insecurity.

“Bringing up Baby” groups consist of a maximum of 5 couples and who to commit to the group for 2 years, meeting on a monthly basis having a months break when their baby is born. The new family can bring baby with them to the group and explore how they feel being a new parents.

For this group the only criteria is, to be first time parents. Single sex couples, adopting parents who are waiting for the arrival of their baby and heterosexual couples are all welcome.
