About me, my qualifications and fees.

I am psychodynamic psychotherapist & counsellor professionally trained at WPF Therapy, one of the leading institutions in the UK. WPF is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), FPC and UKCP .


I have a WPF Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and a Postgraduate diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice from Roehampton University.
I am a member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). My practice complies with the Ethical Framework of both the FPC & BPC.


We come to therapy to change our lives, which can be done by changing ourselves. I believe the most effective changes occur when we can experience and examine our behaviour in relation to others.
Therapy will begin where you are, and together we will indentify the goals of work. I will bring warmth, commitment, support and offer you a safe environment in which you can share difficult feelings to begin a healing process and approach change.

I view therapy as a process that can facilitate healing and change as well as understanding, insight and fulfillment. It can help in a variety of difficult and painful situations. These situations include being stuck in a conflicted relationship, feeling lost, struggling with depression and anxiety, adjusting to a transition or life change, feeling unable to break unhealthy patterns or resolve past issues and pain. Together we can explore the issues you face and identify the direction you want your life to take and the steps needed to get you there.
Once established, our relationship can provide the foundation and safety for this process.

The first consultation which can last up to 90 minutes is 60. After that I charge 50 in Croydon 70 in London Bridge per session . I also offer reduced fees for the unemployed, students and those on low income.
