About me

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist practicing in London W2, at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE) and London W1. In addition, I am also an EMDR therapist and can offer EMDR sessions to clients with issues related to trauma. Please see https://emdr.whitefuse.net.

I also offer Perinatal support sessions to women in pregnancy and in the weeks following birth. This is support emotional adjustment to pregnancy and infant care.

Given the recent guidance around Covid-19 I am currently practising both online (via zoom, FaceTime or Skype), by phone and in person depending on individual preference.

The impact of Coronavirus has meant people are feeling many things - unsettled  and challenged by the changes to their lives. At this time your self-esteem may be low and this may be affecting your personal and professional choices & decisions.

I offer therapy for a range of issues; such as anxiety, depression, complex trauma, difficult family relationships, bereavement, low confidence and identity issues (cultural, role at work, family, sexuality).

Whether you are in crisis, or feeling sad or worried about something that's going on in your life, talking can make a difference. Current research indicates that talking therapies - counselling/psychotherapy can provide a way to understand, manage and resolve such conditions. The therapeutic relationship between you and your chosen therapist can be transformative.

I work using a variety of different approaches, drawing on whatever seems most helpful to you. I will listen empathically and intuitively to you express the challenges that you face and use my experience to get to the heart of the problem. Then, together, we can explore the issue and enable you to move forward in your life.

The first session is a time to discuss your reasons for choosing therapy. It is also a chance for you to gauge your experience of the session and of my style of working.

I offer weekly sessions at an agreed time (with GDPR compliance in accordance with BACP/ UKCP for confidentiality). Sessions are 50 minutes long and I have a 48 hour cancellation policy. Payment is in cash or online at the end of each session.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
