About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor offering individual therapy in London and abroad. I provide both short-term and open-ended therapy. I offer a calm, thoughtful, and non-judgmental space in which to explore, make connections, and get support with difficult feelings. I have experience working with a wide range of issues and have helped patients from various nationalities, backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, genders, and sexual orientations.

My practice of psychodynamic therapy holds a balanced focus that allows us to look back to understand the past, explore current situations, and connect to unconscious motivations and pressures. Psychodynamic ways of working can be creative. We might look at memories, dreams, encounters, and experiences in wide-ranging and open ways.

Please feel free to contact me for an initial consultation. I offer a free 30 minutes appointment where we can explore what brings you to therapy and what it feels like to work together. Available in English, Portuguese and Italian.

Training, qualifications & experience

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.
