About me

Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, ambivalent, or unhappy at times. As a BACP registered professional counsellor and psychotherapist, I can help you understand and manage difficult times in your life, and take a deeper look into your anxieties and worries.

I currently work as a person centred counsellor and psychotherapist within a public organisation alongside my private practice. 

I have worked with a range of mental health issues and disorders such as; depression, anxiety disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge eating, substance abuse, physical and domestic abuse, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.

I also have experience in relationship and sex counselling should you wish to attend with a partner.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP registered Adult therapist and Child & Adolescent Psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist.

My qualifications include an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy for Children and Adolescents from Birkbeck University of London and a foundation degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Regent’s University of London. I have over six years experience of providing psychodynamic counselling, person-centred counselling and psychotherapy for children, teenagers and adults.

Member organisations


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.

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.
