About me

I am seeing clients for their therapy sessions in person in my consulting rooms in W10 & EC1R. The pandemic may have been a time of uncertainty, anxiety and loss for you. Relationships at home and at work may feel strained and emotions may be running high. Often past problems re-emerge and you may need to talk in confidence about all that troubles you. Coming out of lockdown & easing back into life beyond the restrictions may also bring its challenges, uncertainties & troubles.

The therapy I offer is a place for you to talk in confidence about the anxieties and experiences that are troubling you. Difficult feelings like frustration, fear, anger and confusion may be particularly present in you at the moment as a result of social isolation.

Your feelings may be overwhelming, disturbing, complicated or confusing. Your relationships, work, home or family life may be affected by the troubles you have.

I believe that our environment, past experiences and an unknown or unconscious element to our lives shapes the feelings we have, the relationships we are in and the difficulties we encounter.

Bad experiences, change, loss and illness are just some factors that can be trigger feeling low or lonely, anxious or depressed. Sometimes feelings can seem as if they come from nowhere or old ways of thinking and acting can recur.

Talking, sharing and thinking in therapy with me has the potential to open up different ways of feeling and then different ways of living.Talking in the short term and long term can help.

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.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

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.
