I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor offering a one to one counselling service in central and east London. This can be short or long term depending on your needs and wishes. I am a fully insured and supervised member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and as such work within their Ethical Framework.
You may have something specific that brings you to counselling, or sometimes there could be a general feeling of unhappiness in your life, and it’s difficult to pinpoint what it is. You may find it a struggle to find the words to talk about issues that are concerning you. I can offer you a safe space where together, and at your pace, we can explore your thoughts and feelings to make sense of your experiences.
Counselling can be difficult, and it may mean facing challenging issues, but this is part of a process to gaining a greater awareness of who you are. This can allow you to accept and manage feelings better instead of repressing or being overwhelmed by them. I will work with you through this process in a supportive and non-judgemental way. I believe it’s important to have the opportunity to tell your story where you are acknowledged and understood; where you can be curious and learn about yourself at a much deeper level.
I am happy for you to telephone or email me, whichever is easier.
Following this, we can arrange an initial meeting to see if I can help you at this time; and for you to see if you can work with me.

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.

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).
