About me

About Me

I am a native Londoner and I love this city with its diverse mix of people. However, cities can be stressful and I equally need the healing properties of nature, whether it be in the parks of south east London or the varied countryside of the UK.

I have lived and worked in different parts of the UK, and worked extensively abroad which has given me a deep interest and appreciation of other cultures and ways of living. Being a psychotherapist is a third career for me after working in theatre and performance, and a subsequent career as a teacher and lecturer of the performing arts.

What Psychotherapy can do for you

Many people feel 'stuck' and unable to move forward. I can help you unpick the reasons for this paralysis and find a way through your difficulties.

Psychotherapy can help when life crises such as divorce, bereavement, ageing parents, or a lack of purpose become hard to deal with. Anxiety and depression may feel overwhelming and you need to find a way forward. As an integrative therapist, I am able to use different therapeutic approaches to suit each client rather than just following one approach with everyone.

​I utilise a number of therapy approaches, therefore, to create a warm, supportive environment in which clients feel safe.  They are then able to work through issues and feelings that they are experiencing, and face up to challenges in their lives.

Training

​I trained at The Minster Centre and CPPD Counselling School from which I have an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and follow the Ethical Framework of the BACP that protects both clients and therapists. I am also registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office.

What to expect in your first session

An initial assessment session gives you the opportunity to see whether we will be a good fit for each other and gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have about the sessions or psychotherapy in general. You may have a particular issue you wish to deal with over a shorter length of time, or a number of issues that require longer term work.

Where to find me

I offer in person sessions at The Little Escape in Crystal Palace weekly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:15pm to 9:15pm.
Psychotherapy sessions usually take place weekly and last for 50 minutes.
​I also offer online sessions via Zoom if you are more comfortable with meeting online. These are available on Mondays and Wednesdays.
​Sessions cost £70 in person and £55 online.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
