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.
Given the recent guidance around Covid-19 I am currently practising online (via zoom, FaceTime or Skype), by phone and email depending on individual preference.
The impact of Coronavirus has meant people are feeling many things - unsettled, isolated, anxious, depressed, concerned about family and friends, and challenged by the changes to their lives.
Someone close to you may be seriously ill, or sadly have died? Or there could be other issues that are troubling you? 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.

Training, qualifications & experience

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 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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
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.
Accredited register membership
