About me

Liverpool street+Central+London+Counselling+Psychotherapy+relationship counselling

I am an experienced Chartered Psychologist offering private counselling and relationship counselling in Liverpool Street and Kensington.

Before founding Relationships in Mind back in 2014, I had worked in the NHS for a number of years with the full spectrum of needs in primary, secondary and tertiary care settings with both outpatients and inpatients, individuals, groups, and families.

I have always wanted to create a safe space where individuals and couples could have the time to think about themselves in depth and create more mindful connections.

In addition to my doctoral training, I hold a number of post graduate qualifications including a masters in the theory of psychoanalysis, and a masters in work psychology.


Professional registrations

I am registered as a Counselling Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the organisation that regulates psychology in the UK. I am also chartered with the British Psychological Society (BPS), which is the gold standard of practice for British psychologists. I abide by the code of ethics and standards of practice of both organisations. You can locate my registration details by clicking on the above links. 


Therapeutic frameworks

I have been trained and practised in all three dominant therapy models: Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), humanistic, and psychodynamic/psychoanalytic therapy. I specialise in the latter; there’s now compelling evidence (2010) that a lot of what helpful therapists do comes mainly from that framework.
