About me

At times life can feel like a struggle and can make us feel stressed, anxious or depressed. Often these feelings will impact on many different aspects of our lives, for example our relationships, work or simply our ability to enjoy things. It may be that we understand why such feelings have arisen - perhaps someone close to us has died or there are problems within our closest relationships or wider family issues. Often, it is not clear why we feel low, we just know that ‘something is not right’ and it may be that we have been feeling like that for a long time. Under these circumstances it is not uncommon to feel isolated and alone.

Whatever the reason may be for seeking help, I offer a space to explore these difficulties and feelings together, thinking about why feelings have arisen and how we might make constructive changes to improve things.

I am an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist offering both short and longer term therapy and counselling. I am based in Bloomsbury, less than 5 minutes from Tottenham Court Road Station. I also work in Hammersmith, West London (3 mins walk from Ravenscourt Park underground station and 8 mins walk from Hammersmith underground station).

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Pyschodynamic Psychotherapy from WPF, a highly established and well respected training institution in London.

I am a professional member of the FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and am a registered member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council). I abide by their respective professional code of ethics and practice.

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.
