About me

I am a fully qualified and highly experienced psychological  therapist / counsellor based in Northwood, with over twenty years experience  working with both adults and young people, families and individuals. I also work as a school counsellor where I hold clinics for students, run workshops, offer mindfulness training and group work.

I offer an opportunity to talk through and share your concerns in a non-judgemental empathetic manner and help you obtain a deeper understanding of yourself and make more informed positive life choices. It is a safe place to explore and find resolutions and resilience to some of the difficulties that one has to navigate during their lives. My aim is for clients to build an emotional tool box and inner strength in order to deal with day to day problems.

  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
