About me

Worcester Park, Wimbledon, Sutton, Raynes Park, Epsom and Ewell, Kingston, SW London

COVID-19:  In order to be as flexible as possible, I am currently providing therapy via online video or telephone for the duration of this crisis.


I am an integrative-relational counsellor and psychotherapist with 20 years experience.  I offer confidential support and understanding to enable individuals and couples take the necessary steps towards coping with life's difficulties. 

I provide brief counselling as well as more in-depth, longer-term individual therapy, couples counselling, CBT, solution-focussed brief therapy, group therapy, young people's counselling, supervision, and coaching.

I work with a wide range of issues such as relationships; bereavement; depression; family issues; low self-esteem; anger management; stress and anxiety; trauma; health issues, abuse, adolescence, cross-cultural relationships, weight loss (see full list below) and incorporate mindfulness practice to assist you to you to live a calmer, more stress-free life.

I facilitate this work using a holistic approach which respects your values, difference  and uniqueness and I will help you to gain new insights, understand your problems and recognize your inner strengths and capacity for personal growth and change.

I abide by the professional Code of Ethics of UKCP, BACP and Metanoia Institute.


My practice:
5 minutes from the A3, bus routes and Worcester Park Station (SW Rail). 
-  Plenty of free parking
-  Daytime and evening sessions.

If you would like to find out if I am the right counsellor for you please telephone or email. An initial session will enable you to see whether we are able to form a good working relationship and to further explore what you want from therapy before making any commitment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
