About me

Counselling and Psychotherapy for Young Professionals working in London.  If you are confused, fearful and anxious, therapy can provide consistent relief and support with lives difficulties and make you psychologically stronger to move towards achieving your goals.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist MBACP (Accred) with over 10 years experience. I have worked for an NHS Clinic in Westminster for several years and NGOs in East London. I now run my Private Psychotherapy practice in Central and North London while also working for Marylebone Health and healing center.

In my private psychotherapy practice I provide therapy for young professionals needing a warm, supportive and consistent therapy that is deeply thoughtful and containing. 

I will help you understand your confusing and conflicting feelings about work and life. I offer time and space to think together about your difficulties and make helpful psychological progress and change. 

Uncovering your thoughts and feelings about interpersonal conflicts and making meaningful links to your past can help build powerful self awareness and a fuller understanding of your inner world.

Contact me directly on 07714793242 for a brief consultation and we book in a time for a full assessment. If I feel you are better suited to another type of service she will give you recommendations and signpost you to other options. 

Treatment is usually reviewed after the initial 6 weeks to see if you and I are a good fit and how I can help you. Then if you wish to work deeper, therapy can continue for longer open-ended, with an expectation that you give 4 weeks notice and discuss a planned ending.  

Starting therapy can be frightening and a quick call to ask questions and address worries can help soothe these fears.

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.


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.
