About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced UKCP accredited and BACP registered psychotherapy and counselling practitioner in individual therapy with extensive knowledge and experience working with adults experiencing depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and crises.

Counselling & Psychotherapy may be able to help if you are:

  • Not feeling good about life at the moment and you don't understand why
  • Suffering from stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression or finding it hard to cope
  • Having difficulties within personal or family relationships
  • Having problems adjusting to change
  • Facing a problem that is hard to talk about or resolve
  • Experiencing any kind of loss, bereavement or trauma

Let's Talk

I provide a calm space to explore what may be contributing to your current difficulties. I offer you an opportunity to gain another perspective and explore new options and ways of managing your issues.

The emphasis is on people developing the skills to be self-reflective, increase understanding of their personal beliefs and values, aid psychological and emotional maturity and learn how to cope with the challenges of life more effectively, by accepting what cannot be changed and addressing what can be. My relational and philosophical approach has a focus on relationships people have with themselves, others and life in general.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 20 years of experience working with vulnerable adults with variety of mental health conditions and diagnosis. I managed a welfare project for the NHS and for the Mind in Hackney,  providing service to psychiatric wards as well as for clients using the community mental health teams. Part of my role was also to train social work students as a practice educator.

I have been working in private practice for nine years and in that time have worked with a large variety of people with different issues such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, various personality disorders, hearing voices and attachment related issues.

Member organisations

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

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.
