Psychodynamic Psychotherapist BPC,UKCP,MBACP,BAATN

About me

I am an experienced and accredited psychodynamic psychotherapist. I work with adults and young adults in my private practice in Fitzrovia, London, providing both in person and online therapy.

Seeking a therapist can be a daunting, sometimes confusing process. That is why I offer a free first online or phone consultation. Email me at I will get back to you, usually within 24 hours, with a mutually convenient appointment time.

This meeting is free, confidential and is an opportunity for us to have a brief chat about what has brought you to therapy, what you may hope to achieve and if working together has the potential for change for the better. 

The next step would be to meet again for a 90 minute in depth consultation. The fee for this is £120. This step is important to build trust and confidence and to get an idea of what therapy entails and if it feels right for you. 

Once it feels appropriate, weekly sessions will be scheduled. Sessions are 50 minutes in duration and are usually held on the same day and time. My fee for ongoing weekly sessions is £70.

It is sometimes difficult to acknowledge, least of all to yourself, when things don't feel right in your life. I offer a completely confidential, safe and professional space where you feel heard and we can explore and make sense of your experiences together. With developing understanding of oneself, comes I believe, a potential to live life in a happier, more balanced way.

Throughout my life, I have embraced new cultures and understand firsthand the challenges around building one's unique identity in the context of diversity in terms of race, culture, gender, sexual orientation and religion.

I have a professional, warm, empathetic and committed approach that has helped my clients understand and navigate difficult periods in their lives.

I have worked with people experiencing Abuse, Addictions, Anger Management Issues, Anxiety, Bereavement, Cultural issues, Depression, Dis-associative Experiences, Divorce, Eating disorders, Health Anxiety and Health Related Issues, Identity issues, Loss, Obsessions, OCD, Panic Attacks, Phobias, Post-traumatic Stress, Pregnancy, Redundancy, Relationships, Self esteem, Self-harm, Sex-Related issues, Sexual Identity, Sexuality, Stress, Trauma, Transitional Life Periods, Work Related Issues

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 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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.
