I practice as an integrative counsellor/therapist, an organisational psychologist and coach – working individually with adults and young people.
I practice in SW (SW18 & SW19) and central London.
Therapy is a journey of self-discovery - it can be both a practical and creative process that explores feelings, thoughts and behavioural patterns, in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. Its main aim is to improve people’s sense of well-being, alleviate distress, resolve concerns, increase capacity to problem-solve, build resilience and make decisions.
I aim to combine my inspiration and creativity with knowledge and pragmatism to support individuals live more fulfilling and purposeful lives. I adopt an integrative approach to psychotherapy and counselling due to the uniqueness of each person and their presenting issues and concerns. I integrate a range of theories and approaches; from psychodynamic, humanistic, body-based, self-psychology, cognitive behavioural methods and Mindfulness practice. However, at the heart of my practice is the principle of relationship between therapist and client.

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.
Accredited register membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
