About me

I am a psychodynamic counsellor with over 10 years of experience. I also use a range of other methods- integrative, humanistic and CBT depending on your needs.

I work with individuals in a setting which allows you to delve into your childhood or early years to find the causes for any present negative feelings, behaviours and thoughts.

Pshychodynamic counselling involves recounting or discovering an individual’s personal history and how they interact with other family members and friends. This can be an extremely revealing and cathartic process for clients. It can lead to new insights and revelations about your current problems and hopefully provide answers and solutions.

I am particularly interested in helping you explore your early relationships which may have formed destructive patterns of behaviour.

My aim is to help you break out of old destructive patterns and identify more constructive ways of dealing with your problems. I aim to offer a secure, safe, non-judgemental and trusting environment for you to discuss these matters with a view to breaking out of negative patterns of behaviour and a deeper understanding of yourself.

Everyone at some point in their lives goes through difficult periods and needs someone to talk to. If you need to talk through a difficult issue in a secure and comfortable space please contact me using the details below.

I provide one-to-one and couples Counselling to adults in Stratford (London) and Woodford.

I have always provided both face to face and remote counselling, however, given the current COVID 19/Coronavirus health emergency I am able to provide remote counselling on various platforms such as Skype and Zoom. FaceTime is currently not possible as it is not secure/encrypted.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.

Key details

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.
