I am an experienced, accredited counsellor/psychotherapist seeing clients in Peckham and on zoom. I can help you understand and accept yourself whilst also exploring ways to implement healthy changes.
I offer a safe, confidential space where you can express your most challenging thoughts and feelings and be heard with empathy and respect. Together we will increase insight into the way you feel and act. We will explore how your life experiences have shaped your beliefs about yourself and the world. This process will enable you to gain more control over your thoughts and actions.
I offer long and short-term therapy, supporting clients with the range of issues that effect mental health and wellbeing including depression, anxiety and self-esteem.
I also specialise in Sex and Relationships therapy. I support clients with relationship issues, anxieties around sex, compulsive sexual behaviour and pornography use, and issues relating to sexuality and adjustment to health diagnoses.
If you think you might be interested in working together please email me. I will then offer you either a free introductory call, or a 50 minute assessment session. After the assessment session if you decide you want to go ahead we will book in a ongoing weekly slot.
I trained at Greenwich University to master’s level (MSc) in Therapeutic Counselling; before this I studied psychology at degree level at the University of Newcastle (BS, hons).
I am a BACP accredited counsellor/psychotherapist and an Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist. I am accredited as an Advanced Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversities Therapist by Pink Therapy and am trained in IFS couples therapy.
I work integratively, combining psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural techniques. I also offer Internal Family Systems therapy to individuals and couples.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
