About me

I am a Humanistic Integrative bilingual psychotherapist and counsellor with over 15 years’ experience in the public / NHS sector and in private practice. I trained at CPPD and the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London. Prior to training as a therapist, I worked as a facilitator and coach in the City and continue to offer coaching in addition to therapy.

I am experienced in helping clients deal with a range of issues, including but not limited to:

·       Anxiety

·       Addiction

·       Bereavement and loss

·       Cultural issues

·       Depression

·       Marriage/relationship problems

·       Self-esteem

·       Stress

·       Work-related difficulties

As an Integrative therapist, I combine several theories – Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Attachment, and my approach is tailored to your individual needs. I offer a supportive and positive environment to enable you to work with me on issues causing difficulty. I aim to provide a safe space where you will be seen and heard without judgement and will be free to speak about what concerns you.

Sessions are weekly, last 50 minutes and cost £70 for individuals and £80 for couples.  We can work long-term or for a limited time period, depending on what is appropriate for you. We will agree this in the initial session.

I work with clients from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures and am culturally sensitive.

I work in English and Russian. I follow the BACP Code of Ethics, undergo regular supervision for my clinical work and maintain professional development.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. 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.
