About me

I am a warm and experienced counsellor, offering day and evening appointments, in a peaceful, private setting. I work short term and long term with adults, adolescents, children and couples.

I offer a supportive, non judgemental environment to work through issues in a confidential, safe and effective way, to enable new perspective on past and current issues and tools to cope with future life. I work in a Person Centred way which focuses on the counselling relationship, established through support and empathy. I have also used Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness techniques.

Some people simply need one session to share their grief or difficulty. Others can very clearly say they need a certain number of sessions, such as six or twelve, and we can agree to work towards completing in that time. Other people feel they need to work in an open-ended way in order not to be rushed and because they do not know how long they might need.

If you would like to email me or speak to me on the phone to discuss your needs before deciding to come and see me, I would be pleased to hear from you.

There is on site parking and I am about ten minutes walk from a tube station.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an Advanced certificate and a Post Graduate Diploma in  Counselling. I am an Accredited member of BACP and UKRCP Registered. As well as having worked as a couples counsellor, I also have experience working with individuals, offering short and long term counselling covering a wide range of different issues. I have had considerable experience in working with children and young people, for many years for Relate and have an understanding and experience in working with Childhood Abuse and have attended considerable training. I have been counselling for many years and now have my own private practice.

I am an accredited member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists), which means that I adhere to their code of ethics and framework for good practice (see www.bacp.co.uk.). As required by the BACP, I am in regular supervision and follow an ongoing programme of continuing professional development. I hold Enhanced CRB check certificates.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I practice Mindfulness and I have been trained to teach this to clients, as this has been shown to prevent a recurrence of depression and help give people a better sense of well being in their day to day lives.

Fees

I charge £40 for an hour for individual session and £60 for a 90 minute couple session. I charge £30 for students and those on a low income.

Further information

I am a few minutes walk from Morden Tube station, bus and tram stops. There is also off road parking available outside my office.
