About me

I am a therapist in full time practice, with over seven years post qualified experience working from central London, and also offering online therapy.  Working primarily from the central London area, I am familiar with issues affecting workers in the financial, consultancy, and legal industries.  Relationship problems, anxiety, depression, job stress, and the desire to make sense of difficult feelings and experiences, are all issues which are considered in therapy.  

Bringing personal concerns and difficulties to therapy can feel very daunting.  An initial consultation is offered to explore your needs, hopes and desires for therapy.  The consultation typically consists of the first 2 therapy sessions, and is an opportunity to gather a sense of what it is like to both work together in counselling.  I am trained in both long and short-term work.  I mostly see people for longer term therapy, and all my session arrangements are either once weekly, or twice weekly.      

In terms of my professional qualifications, I hold a Master's Degree in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.  I am also on the register of the British Psychoanalytic Council as a psychodynamic counsellor.  I continue with on-going professional development and maintain the ethical frameworks of the BACP and BPC.  I also hold degrees in Social Work and Theology.

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.
