About me

I am a Humanistic Integrative English and Russian speaking psychotherapist with over 15 years’ experience in the public / NHS sector and in private practice.  I work with individuals and couples, often cross-cultural couples.

My background is as a facilitator and coach in the City and I continue to offer coaching in addition to therapy.

Areas of expertise:

-      Anxiety

·       Addiction

·       Bereavement and loss

·       Cultural adaptation issues

·       Depression

·       Marriage/relationship problems

·       Self-esteem

·       Stress

·       Work-related difficulties

As a Humanistic Integrative therapist, I combine person-centred, Attachment and Transactional analysis theories, tailored individually to respond to your needs.

I am approachable and transparent in the way I work.

Over the years I have helped clients from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures to:
- make changes
- enhance their well-being
- improve relationships.

Please see my website for testimonials.


Sessions take place weekly, last 50 minutes to 1 hour and cost £60 for individuals and £70 for couples.

I work in English and Russian.

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.
