About me

I support people to make positive life changes through a new understanding of themselves and their strength.  Would you like to feel more satisfied with your life, get to know yourself better, work through important life events or improve your relationships? If so, please get in touch.

Therapy involves noticing and sometimes challenging how we think about ourselves, our past and how we relate to other people. Over time this awareness can empower us to be compassionate and true to ourselves and become more resilient.

My way of working draws on both the Person-Centred and Psychodynamic approaches to therapy. I believe that you are best placed to understand yourself and your experiences. I see my role as supporting you to make sense of things and move towards where you want to be. I provide a respectful, sincere, and accepting space to focus on you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a fully qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist (Dip.Co) with additional training in Online Counselling, Clinical Assessment, Mentalising, Bereavement and Focusing. I have experience working with anxiety and stress, low self-esteem and self-confidence, grief and loss, relationship problems, depression, life changes, and the effects of past abuse and trauma. I also have many years experience working in the music industry.

I’m a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP 384444). I’m committed to an ethical framework, which is a set of guidelines that ensure my work is safe and is focussed on your wellbeing and choices.

Volunteering with mental health charity MIND, including delivering services for the NHS, has involved my working with people from many backgrounds, at different stages of their lives and with different questions and challenges.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Additional information

I offer in-person sessions in Holloway (N7) and Dalston (E8), London, if you prefer to talk in a neutral space, away from your home and everyday life. I offer online sessions wherever you are if you prefer to communicate by phone or video and have access to a quiet space where you can talk privately. 

I offer time-limited therapy (6 - 12 session) and open-ended therapy with regular reviews to make sure that we're both satisfied with how the work is going. Sessions last 50 minutes, and I encourage people to attend on the same day at the same time each week. This is because regular therapy is often the most effective way to make a positive change.

If you are interested to get in touch, I will arrange a time to talk to you by phone, at no charge and with no pressure to commit to future sessions. This would  include discussing how we might work together and what positive change we could work towards. It would also be an opportunity to ask any questions.

When I work

I offer in-person sessions on Wednesdays and Thursdays and online (phone or video) sessions on Tuesdays and Fridays. I currently have availability to take on new clients.

Further information

If you’re interested to work with me, we can arrange a time to talk at no cost and with no pressure to commit to further sessions. Please also feel free to visit my website where you can find resources on therapy and wellbeing, including blogposts, playlists, and reviews.
