Hello, and welcome to my profile. I am now offering both in-person and online sessions.
I am a qualified and experienced therapist providing therapeutic counselling in Pimlico, London.
Whether you are looking for a space for self-exploration or to deal with challenging issues that are impacting you in your present, together we can untangle your thoughts and feelings, and help you to make sense of your experiences.
I am experienced in working with clients from a diverse and broad range of ages and cultures in several counselling settings as well as my private practice. Some of the issues I have experience working with include relationship issues, stress, anxiety, grief, loss, traumatic life experiences, bullying, inner child wounds, low self-esteem, feeling sad, and challenges of living a multicultural life. I am committed to offering a safe, confidential, and holding space for you to be heard and together work through what is challenging you.
My approach is client-centred and relational. It is concerned with how the difficulties you are experiencing are showing up in the 'here and now', as well as how your past experiences may be impacting your ways of being in the present. I will walk alongside you on your journey helping you to understand yourself better and to find a more fulfilling path. I work in a 'holistic' way meaning working in a way to help you open up and connect to your experiences and integrate mind and body.
By setting a regular time with a caring professional to explore what's challenging, you are making space to validate your feelings, develop self-awareness, and recognize patterns of behaviour that are no longer working for you. Greater self-awareness of your emotions and patterns opens up alternative choices and possibilities.
It takes courage to make the first step to start counselling. I will do my best to make you feel settled, be someone you can trust, and work at a pace that feels right to you.
If you would like to book your first appointment I can best be contacted via email by pressing the Message me button and we will set up a time for your first session. I offer both short term and long term therapy.
I am committed to offering an accepting and culturally sensitive space in my practice.

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.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
