About me

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist practicing from Fulham Broadway. I offer short, long-term and open-ended psychotherapy to individuals and couples.

Typically my clients come to me looking for help with distress, anxiety and depression arising from an often complex mix of concerns such as bereavement, job loss, relationship difficulties, cultural displacement, abuse and trauma, inter-generational difficulties, infant and childhood experiences.

I recognise it takes courage to seek help and that choosing the right therapist can feel daunting. Please contact me if you would like to know more or would like to arrange an initial telephone consultation to talk through your concerns and how we might work together.

In addition to my private practice I also work within two NHS IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) counselling services offering short-term one-to-one therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the School of Psychotherapy and Psychology at Regent’s University London, and am an accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor. I am also an accredited Couples Therapy for Depression IAPT Practioner (Tavistock Relationships).

I am a accredited member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists) and a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy); I am committed to on-going professional development and training and I subscribe to and am guided by the UKCP and BACP codes of ethics for good practice.

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.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

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.

Further information

My way of working:

There are many different approaches to psychotherapy. As an integrative psychotherapist I draw on a number of ways of working that emphasise and encourage increased self-awareness, understanding and personal growth. I am interested in how my clients' make sense of their world, their thoughts and patterns of behaviours and how these may impact on their relationships and day-to-day life. I'm also interested in my clients' infant and childhood relationships and experiences as I believe these can offer clues to how and who we are in adult life.

At the heart of my work is the therapeutic relationship. I approach each new client with a compassionate and open mind, tailoring the work to fit your unique needs. Together, within the safety of a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment, we will explore your difficulties, your physical and emotional feelings, the challenges you feel you face in your life.

Often just being able to talk to someone new and unconnected with your life can, in itself, be a source of relief and comfort, and the start of a shift in thinking and understanding, which can lead to a more fulfilling life and enriching relationships.

Getting to me:

My practice is based at Fulham Broadway, less than 5 minutes walk from Fulham Broadway tube station. Pay and display parking is available nearby and parking is free after 5pm (please check the signs).

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.
