Counsellor and Psychotherapist
I trained as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist at Goldsmiths College, University of London and the University of Greenwich, completing a Postgraduate Diploma in 2002, followed by an MSc in 2005.
I have been seeing clients for individual counselling and psychotherapy since 2001, and today have worked with the majority of problems people can encounter in life.
My experience spans across a range of different contexts and settings: I have worked as a therapist for several counselling centres across London, including Hammersmith and Fulham Mind, Wandsworth Bereavement Service and Drug and Alcohol Services for London (DASL); I worked as a Senior Therapist at the London Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and more recently as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist at St Mungo’s, where in addition to providing individual psychotherapy for clients with often complex presentations, I also offered consultancy to a mental health project and facilitated reflective practice groups/supervision for staff teams.
Although my main interest has always been about seeing clients for individual therapy, I have also facilitated training for other counsellors and psychotherapists, and co-authored a paper which was published in Psychodynamic Practice, one of the leading publications for psychodynamic counsellors and psychotherapists.
Today, I work solely in private practice, and enjoy the flexibility that brings. There are no arbitrary time restrictions imposed, but rather my clients come for as long as they feel they need to or want to and depending on what feels right in each particular situation.
Because everyone is different, I treat each person as an individual. Together we will try to get a better sense of what it is that is troubling you, so you can find new possibilities for moving forward. If you are interested to know more, then drop me an email, and we can see where to start from here.
I work in English and German.
I am accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and adhere by their ethical framework.
The fee for the initial consultation is £60. Ongoing sessions are charged on a sliding scale, dependent on your income and personal circumstances between £50-£80.
I am also an approved provider for AXA PPP Healthcare, BUPA, Cigna, Aviva and BUPA Global.
