Counselling Psychologist and Psychosexual Therapist

About me

Experienced and accredited by the British Psychological Society, HCPC and COSRT Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist based in the City of London. I offer individual and couples short-term, long term and open ended therapy face to face and online.

I have recently became a member of COSRT- College of Psychosexual and Relationship Therapists.

Working therapeutically in different settings in the UK and abroad (Charity organisations, MIND, Hospice, NHS) with diverse individuals encompassing a wide range of psychological issues, I believe that many people can benefit from therapy. The contextual approach that my philosophy is based on means that there is no one way of working with individuals, and therefore our task is to find the best approach to meet your needs, your circumstances and what brings you to therapy at this time.

I do provide therapy in both English and Russian languages.

How we will work together

Together we will explore the difficulties that bring you to therapy, focusing on what makes you who you are, how it affects your everyday life and what we can do in order to help you to achieve what you want.

My role is to provide a confidential, safe and secure environment. This allows us to build a trusting relationship, where you set the pace, talking freely about the issues important to you.  Depending on your needs and preferences, we will decide together how long therapy should last in order to come to meaningful results. The first meeting is an opportunity to discover whether we can work together and begin to understand what can be achieved through therapy, what you want and what I can offer. If you do not feel that I am the right therapist for you, it is important that we acknowledge that and refer you to another therapy or therapist who might be more appropriate.

Having experience working with clients of different age groups, cultural backgrounds, mental issues, social and personal status, I understand the importance of confidentiality and ethical dilemmas that might arise during the therapeutic process.  Everything will be explored together in the therapeutic room, and clients will have all the necessary information about the ethical rules that I follow as an accredited counselling psychologist.

Training, qualifications & experience

My integrative training embraces, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and CBT therapies. Drawing from a variety of theoretical perspectives gives me a broader spectrum from which to work.

I qualified as a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and set up my private practice in the City of London. I adhere to BPS, the Code of Ethics and Practice.  I am committed to my professional development, and I am interested in expanding my knowledge and professional skills undertaking the courses listed below:
