I offer individual adult psychotherapy in Canonbury, within easy reach of Islington, Dalston and Stoke Newington, and a short trip from the West End.
Please note that during the COVID-19 situation, I will be offering online sessions and currently have good availability.
I am a UKCP qualified integrative psychotherapist, working across a wide range of areas and interests. I have a background in both creative and business worlds. My confidential service is warm, empathic and dynamic: I hope to allow clients the opportunity to explore presenting issues freely and in depth.
Short term work (usually a minimum of 12 sessions) and long term work available.
Areas of interest include: mood disorders (depression and anxiety), loss of meaning in life or existential 'emptiness', public speaking anxiety, bereavement and loss, trauma, relationship and lifestyle matters, workplace stress and impairments in work/life balance, sexuality and identity, LGBTQ issues, past abuse (eating disorders and addiction), senior and late life concerns.

Registered / Accredited
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
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.
Accredited register membership
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).
