About me

I offer a safe, non-judgemental environment, in which to explore difficult issues. Therapy is tailored to suit your needs, rather than fitting into a method. I seek to create a space where clients feelings and experiences can be explored, through a collaborative process. I feel the quality of the relationship between us is vital for change and transformation.

My approach is integrative and I primarily work within a framework that leans towards a relational approach. Grounded in psychodynamic concepts, I am also influenced by attachment theory and body psychotherapy, favouring a person-centred therapeutic style.

I have experience with a wide range of issues that include depression, anxiety, trauma, sexuality, relationship issues, bereavement, identity, eating disorders, disability, chronic health conditions, child and adult sexual abuse.

I welcome whatever issue(s) you may bring to therapy.

To get started you can call or email me to set up an initial session; we'll talk about what you want and then if you're happy to continue we will go from there.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at The Minster Centre in London. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling, an Advanced Diploma and MA in Integrative Psychotherapy. I am a member of the BACP and UKCP.

Since 2016 I have been an assistant tutor for psychotherapy skills at The Minster Centre.

In addition to my private practice, I've worked as a counsellor in low-cost counselling services in Queen's Park and Richmond.

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.


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.


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.

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

In addition to the areas listed above, I am also interested in working with clients around neurological conditions.

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.
