About me

As a fully qualified psychotherapist, my approach is integrative and psychodynamic determined by the individual and their needs. My work involves an exploration and understanding of your life and experience from birth to present, including unconscious processes and dreams. I seek to understand thought patterns, fears, obstacles and unhelpful perceptions that stand in the way of love and success. You are encouraged to talk about and understand your feelings, and to learn to distinguish between truth and fear.

Our first session is an assessment where we can discuss any questions or concerns you may have, as well as expectations and hopes.

I  have helped numerous clients and patients work through anxiety and depression, addiction, bereavement, panic attacks, and more. I have worked in the NHS in complex care and having trained in an NHS hospital, I am able to help you to understand yourself better and to accept yourself.

“The one thing you can’t take away from me is the way I choose to respond to what you do to me. The last of one’s freedoms is to choose one’s attitude in any given circumstance.” ~Victor Frankl

As a qualified practitioner in Alternative Dispute Resolution I am also trained to work as a mediator to help settle disputes out of court efficiently and peacefully.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters degree and a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent's University. I am a trained mindfulness practitioner, and I have previously volunteered at Cruse, Mind and Goodmayes Hospital in Redbridge working in complex care.

I have been working with people helping to understand themselves better for nearly 20 years. I have worked in the NHS in complex care and personality disorders.

For many years I worked in media for various publications and websites as an Agony Aunt and daily columnist. I am also a published writer, and this work continues in response to demand.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
