I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor practising in London. I am currently available and taking bookings in Islington on Weekends, Saturday. I work with adults, students and couples to raise their self-awareness and provide a space for change.
As an Integrative Counsellor I have trained in a number of approaches including Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, CBT and Existential therapy. I apply these therapeutic approaches to fit your individual needs and personal experience. Therapy offers you the chance to safely voice your thoughts, suffering or burdens in a confidential, non-judgmental and growth promoting environment that we shall co-create.
I am a professionally qualified and registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) which is the largest professional body representing counselling and psychotherapy in the UK.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over 5 years' experience working as a Counsellor and within the field of Mental Health. My experience includes working as a counsellor within an NHS IAPT service, private therapy practice and within the educational mental health sector.
In my private practice I see clients who seek counselling for various reasons, ranging from adjusting to mental health diagnoses or symptoms, being affected by depression, anxiety, stress or have work-related issues. Many clients I work with seek therapy for social difficulties, relational difficulties and marriage or intimacy problems. I work regularly with clients on issues related to their self-esteem, value, worth and validation as I believe this is at the core of many 'secondary' issues which clients often face in life or find themselves seeking therapy for. A more comprehensive list of the areas I work with in counselling can be found above and below.
Before working in private practice I worked for Wandsworth & Westminster Mind offering therapy to clients within the local diverse community. I have also worked in private practice for a psychotherapy recovery clinic based near Harley St and a University Counselling service. Since then, I have combined my passion for mental health and inclusive educational rights, ensuring support for young Minds by working as a Mental Health & Wellbeing Officer for a College in London, managing one of their sites. I specialise in supporting students with mental health symptoms or diagnoses through their education through my work as a specialist mental health mentor.

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.
