Psychotherapist

About me

Suffering in life may take many forms. My approach is guided by the belief that through therapy we can endeavour together to find meaning in the suffering and navigate beyond stuckness or ingrained ways of living which are no longer working for you.

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist having completed a rigorous five year UKCP accredited training. I provide long term, open-ended psychotherapy to individuals and couples both online and in Islington.

I work from a psychodynamic perspective. This means that I attach importance not only to current experiences and ways of relating, but also to how these may be linked to earlier experiences - understanding the underlying nature of the behaviour and emotions which are causing difficulty or distress can help to relieve suffering and open up the possibility for change. I believe therapy can aid the development of self awareness & foster a sense of meaning and purpose in your life in the midst of loss, confusion or very bleak and anxiety-provoking experiences.

I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including NHS Mental Health services, Mind, and the bereavement charity Cruse Bereavement Care. I began my career in the arts and have a particular interest in the relationship between creativity and psychotherapy and how crisis can be a catalyst for change.

The first step will be to arrange an initial meeting with me to discuss working together so that we can both get a sense of whether ongoing sessions will be useful to you. Please do get in touch & I will provide a space for you to talk confidentially about what brings you to therapy.

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.
