About me

If you are feeling anxious and depressed or are engaging in destructive behaviours which are hurting your personal relationships and self-esteem, the I may be able to help you.  Working together with you, we can discover why negative patterns keep repeating for you.  By becoming aware of these patterns you will be able to make significant and long lasting changes in your life and your relationships.

Therapy sessions are tailored to your specific needs and are unique to you.  Working in collaboration with you, we will explore your past and present circumstances and examine any issue that you are facing, so that you can make decisions on how you can improve your life for the better.  I do not give advice.  I will not tell you what you should or should not be doing, but I aim to provide you with the tools and the knowledge that will lead to personal growth and allow you to make the right decisions for your career, relationships and general enjoyment in life.

If you are having to deal with any of the following, I may be able to help:  Anxiety, depression, panic attacks, phobias, family issues, feeling sad, separation and divorce, affairs and betrayals, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), low self-esteem, bereavement, alcoholism, drug abuse, low self-confidence, stress, sex addiction, porn addiction, loneliness, IVF, fertility, anger management, gambling, hoarding, work-related stress, and internet addiction.  This is not an exhaustive list.  Please contact me to see if I can help with any other matters that are affecting you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and registered counsellor and psychotherapist.  I initially developed my interest in mental health as a volunteer at The Maytree in Finsbury Park, helping people with suicidal feelings.  I have done a rigorous and in-depth training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at WPF Therapy, gaining experience working in a clinical setting. 

I am a member of the following organisations, working according to their ethical and professional guidelines:

  • UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP Registration No. 2011173004)
  • British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Membership No. 379101)

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.

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.

UKCP

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
