About me

You might feel anxious, angry, confused, stuck. Maybe your relationships aren’t what you want them to be. Maybe you want to better understand or change certain behaviours or responses. I offer a supportive and confidential space to explore whatever's going on for you.

I can help with anxiety, depression, relationships, anger, feeling sad, intimacy, bereavement, self-esteem. More of the issues I work with are listed below.

I often work with men, exploring the blocks to living the life they want.

I have a two-pronged approach: working to alleviate your distress in the now, but also looking to the past to explore its root causes. I find that's more effective for longer-term change. 

Getting started
We can arrange a 30 minute conversation to discuss what's brought you to therapy - it’s free and there’s no obligation. It’s a great opportunity to ask any questions and see how we might work together.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are on a weekly basis, at the same time on the same day - either on a long- or short-term basis.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a two-pronged approach: working to alleviate your distress in the now, but also looking to the past to explore its root causes.  I find that's more effective for longer-term change.

As an integrative therapist, I draw on a variety of techniques and approaches (like relational, CBT, psychodynamic, attachment). That toolkit enables me to tailor my approach to you. 

I regularly work with anxiety, self-confidence, loss, depression, anger, stress, intimacy, and relationship issues. I work in Chancery Lane (London) and online.

I’m fortunate and happy to work with a diverse range of people, but often work with men and the specific issues they face. 

I've worked in photojournalism, TV production, and charity communications. I understand the importance of empowering people to find and use their voice.

I graduated from the Minster Centre in London, a leading integrative counselling and psychotherapy training institute. I’m a registered member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics and regulatory standards.

I’m here to listen, help, and offer non-judgmental therapeutic support.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
