I am a qualified psychotherapist/counsellor trained in Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). In the recent years I have developed an interest for Existential Counselling. I am an Accredited member of BACP, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Accredited Professional Member of NCS, National Counselling Society. I am a Professional Member of ACTO, the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online.
This is my second career and I have passion for it. Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked for various years in the City of London for a creative digital agency, in my earlier years I worked for several big corporations. I had very many different jobs.
Then, I joined The Samaritans and from there, my curiosity and willingness to help others brought me to study as a counsellor. My experience as client receiving psychotherapy has been equally significative.
Apart from my work in private practice, I have experience of working as Bereavement Counsellor and University Student Counsellor in the charity and public sector.
In my calm office I offer a place that is confidential, warm, non-judgemental and open for exploring any aspects of your life that it is important to you.
I am a LGBTIQA+ ally and I am sex-positive. I am neurodivergent-affirmative and pro self-advocacy (knowing yourself, knowing your needs, and knowing how to get what you need). I am a Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity (GSRD)-affirmative individual. I am anti-racist. I value diversity and I am against discrimination in all its forms. However, I know I must do my best to learn and be always vigilant and aware of my own blind-spots.
