General Information

Fully qualified Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist offering open-ended individual therapy in South West London. I have extensive experience working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and relational concerns. My priority is to build a containing and supportive therapeutic relationship which creates a space for honest discussion and exploration.

Psychological difficulties can take several forms and people often convey that something is ‘not quite right,’ perhaps they have been feeling low, tearful, disconnected or anxious for some time. These difficulties can take us by surprise and often emerge when ‘everything should be okay.’ Together we will talk about your difficulties, how you make sense of them and explore ways to overcome or minimise the effects they have on your daily life.

Approach & Experience

Relational psychotherapy provides the foundation and guiding principles for my work. This means I value collaborative discussions with individuals around their needs, preferences, therapeutic direction and desired outcomes. I have provided psychological support to individuals across NHS, corporate, non-profit and private settings. At present, I split my time between private practice and a charity which offers long-term counselling.

Contact me

Deciding to begin therapy can be anxiety provoking and you have already taken a valuable step by considering it. If you would like to make an appointment or discuss the possibility of therapy with me, please contact me. Finding a therapist that you feel comfortable with is very important and I invite you to come for an initial session to see if you think we could work well together.

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.

HCPC

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
