About me

*Please note that in light of recent developments with Covid-19, I have increased the availability of my online and phone sessions to help more people. I am also offering discounted sessions to NHS staff who might be directly affected.*

I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have experience in working with both adults and young people on an individual basis who are suffering with a variety of issues and difficulties.

I have a wide variety of experience, from bereavement, depression, anxiety, low mood, low self-esteem, negative childhood experiences, relationship and sexual issues, to work related issues and substance abuse.

My main goal is to help you on your path to a happier life, and to equip you with the tools you need, so you can benefit from our sessions long after our time together has ended. Whether you are considering therapy at a time of crisis, or as a way to address an ongoing issue, I hope to help you find a better, happier, more hopeful path through life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have over 4 years client experience, covering a wide variety of issues. I gained a Distinction in my Postgraduate Diploma from the well-established University of East London. This was an integrative psychotherapy course meaning that a variety of skills and techniques were taught, from a variety of schools of thought. I believe this kind of diverse training means my work with you is adaptable and can be tailored to best suit your individuals needs.

Member organisations

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.

Further information

I offer a safe, warm, and non-judgemental space for you to talk through your problems and difficulties.

I am an integrative therapist, which means I draw on a variety of therapeutic techniques from different schools of psychotherapy depending on how I think I can help you best.

I offer therapy in two different settings. Traditional counselling takes place as you’d expect, in a private room in my practice in Shoreditch. Movement therapy takes place outside, in a variety of locations around London. You can stick to just one type of therapy for the duration of our work together, or if we decide it's appropriate, you can switch between the two.

Accessibility

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.
