About me

Many whom I have worked with have had anxiety, bipolar and/or depression, had issues in their relationships, difficulties in managing emotions, or have struggled with thoughts of self-harm. Parents have come to seek therapy for their children diagnosed with ASD and/or ADHD.

As an experienced psychotherapist, who divides his time between the NHS and private practice, I provide a personalised approach. In addition to specialising in Psychodynamic and Family Therapy, I also specialise in CBT-based and DBT therapy. This allows me to provide a holistic, integrative approach.

I feel very privileged to say that I love what I do and always have. I prioritise building a warm, trusting and non-judgemental relationship with my clients, where they feel safe to explore their most difficult experiences, feelings and thoughts in depth. I listen to my clients’ concerns attentively, to get to the root of the problem and suggest potential solutions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am accredited with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and have an MA in Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy, and a clinical diploma in Family/Systemic Therapy.

In addition, I have studied CBT-based supervision at Kings’ College London, and DBT with the Association of Psychological Therapy (APT).

My Qualifications:

MA in Psychotherapy (Middlesex University)
• Clinical Diploma in Family & Systemic Psychotherapy (St. George's Hospital)
• Postgraduate Cert. Emotional Wellbeing in Children and Families (Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust)
• Postgraduate Cert. in IAPT Supervision (King's College University of London)
• Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) [Association of Psychological Therapy]

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
