I am a highly skilled and qualified Senior Counsellor and Psychotherapist with extensive experience within the NHS Mental Health, University and Charity sectors having worked and working with a extensive range of issues. I currently work within the NHS secondary care X2 and private practice settings.
I believe that through the process of understanding one's mind we can lead rich and self-fulfilling lives with greater depth, understanding and enriched relationships. The relationship between the therapist and patient can be a vehicle for growth of the individual and it is by this that the process can help the individual begin to understand themselves and their experiences.
I offer therapy in a calm and supportive environment, in North West & Central London, to encourage exploration and understanding of your personal issues. There is disabled access and parking available at the property, which is close to Canons Park and Edgware Underground stations. I also have a consulting room on Harley Street, London.
Your sessions will be spent talking about what is going on in your life. We will work together and think about what's happening and help understand why. With the approach I work within we will think together about the patterns of thinking, behaviour and feelings in how experiences have affected you both in the past and present to help go forward.
Get in touch...
The initial consultation appointments will be about getting to know you and what has brought you to consider having counselling. We will also talk about important matters including confidentiality and the BACP code of ethics that I work within.
Please contact me by telephone on 07462 047 008 or email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This is important in ensuring a counsellor or therapist is experienced and can be trusted.

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.
