About me

There may be a few or many reasons why you might be seeking therapeutic support. You may be struggling with emotional pain, challenges in everyday life, relationship problems, loss, addiction, abuse or looking for personal development. I treat each client individually and cater the therapy to suit your specific needs. I provide a confidential, non-judgmental, caring and supportive environment in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings. Whether you are looking for short-term or longer more open ended therapy, my motivation is to help you understand and have a greater sense of awareness as to the nature and origins of your problems. It is my hope that each client I work with can begin to see and use their inner strengths and abilities in order to live the life they want.

I'm an integrative therapist providing Counselling and Psychotherapy service in North, South Central London and Kent. I draw on psychodynamic, existential, cognitive, person-centred and relational approaches to psychotherapy, but I believe that while the theories underpinning these approaches are useful, each person’s situation is unique. I aim to help my clients to develop a greater understanding of the unseen patterns of behaviour that can underlie psychological distress, such as depression and anxiety. In working with these patterns it is then possible to address the life experiences they might relate to, such as trauma, difficult family dynamics, abandonment and loss.

I am qualified from Inter-Psyche training centre, Kent and Medway NHS. I am the founder of Your Path Matters Organisation, supporting individuals, families and children, as well as students in schools and colleges with psychological and mental health difficulties. In addition to working in private practice, I work in a London NHS GP practice. Moreover, I work as a therapist with Each Counselling and Psychotherapy Charity, helping minority ethnicities impacted by Covid-19 with bereavement and loss. I also work at Finchley Therapy Practice.

Before training as an integrative therapist, I worked as a Pastoral Director in a Sixth Form college and a boarding school, helping students and families with emotional difficulties and training staff with mental health awareness. I also was a trustee at the board of The Break Foundation supporting families and schools with online grooming abuse awareness. I have a fully enhanced DBS check and I am a registered member of BACP adhering to the BACP code of ethics.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
