About me

I believe that we all have our own unique way of experiencing our world and that being understood is important to us.

As your therapist, I will endeavour to see the world from your perspective, so that you feel understood.

Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed by your thoughts and emotions, or maybe you are repeating patterns of behaviour in your relationships, which are leaving you feeling distressed, anxious or confused. Through careful exploration, working at your pace, I can help you to understand why you repeat these patterns of behaviour and work towards changing them. I can also help you to identify the origin of any difficult thoughts or emotions you may be experiencing: perhaps anger, sadness, loneliness, identity issues, so that you may begin to process them and manage them differently. Perhaps you are experiencing racial or cultural issues, or you need support as you navigate a difficult period in your life, due to loss or change.

Whatever your issues, you can discuss them openly with me, in a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space, and as an integrative therapist I am able to tailor my approach to meet your needs.

I believe that the core of successful therapy is about building and maintaining a trusting relationship with the right therapist, which is a collaborative effort. If we both decide that we can work together, I will be committed to supporting you throughout your time in therapy, with your well-being always being my top priority.

Entering into therapy is a big step and can feel overwhelming, especially if it is your first time. I offer a free 20 minutes consultation, which you can use to ask me any questions you may have about therapy, or maybe to discuss what it is you hope to achieve from our sessions together. Please feel free to call or email me to arrange a consultation.

In addition to my private practice, I volunteer at a London based charity providing therapy for individuals suffering from a wide range of issues.

I have over 20 years experience of working with individuals experiencing alcohol & addiction issues.

As a member of the BACP I adhere to their professional code of ethics and place client care and confidentiality at the forefront of my practice.

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.
