About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor practising in east London, offering therapy for both individuals and couples. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore your life and relationships.

I use Transactional Analysis (TA) as my main theoretical framework from a relational perspective. TA can assist in understanding why we may get stuck in repetitive patterns of unfulfilling behaviour.

Research indicates that the single most important aspect of successful therapy is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client.

I therefore invite you to sit down with me in a relaxed, informal way so we can talk. I help you make better sense of your experiences, thoughts, and emotions.  Together we can discover meanings, recognise patterns, and explore options.

After an initial assessment and depending on the presenting issues, we can agree a therapeutic contract in which we may decide upon a limited number of sessions, or longer term and open-ended work.

I practise in Limehouse, within easy reach of Mile End and Canary Wharf.

I am a Member of the BACP and adhere to their code of ethics.

Member organisations

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.
