About me

I am currently offering online counselling and therapy sessions during the pandemic  - please see my profile for an understanding of how I work.

An accredited psychotherapist and counsellor in London Bridge, Southwark and East Dulwich. I have been a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) for over 10 years - I work with adults from all backgrounds from my consulting rooms close to London Bridge station and Borough and also in East Dulwich. I work in full-time practice as a psychotherapist and counsellor offering private therapy as well as being employed by a charity offering therapy in London.  I am also a registered member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) a professional association promoting psychoanalytic thinking and psychotherapy.

Thinking of therapy

I understand that deciding to seek therapy can be a daunting prospect. Yet therapy can also be an immensely rewarding and beneficial experience to help you understand your difficulties and facilitate change. Like many, you may not be sure what sort of support you need. If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy and would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My work is with adults of all ages, offering short-term counselling and longer term, open-ended psychotherapy. I have many years experience of providing counselling and psychotherapy in different organisational settings.

I am experienced in working with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Destructive patterns of behaviour and relationship problems
  • Feelings of emptiness and isolation
  • Difficulties at work or studying
  • Major life transitions and sudden change
  • Health problems
  • Loss and bereavement

This list is not exhaustive, if you think I may be able to help, please contact me.

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.

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.

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.
