I am an integrative counsellor, working with a varitey of techniques to achieve a speedy and measuralble outcome of change for the client. My main tools are CBT, TA and Hypnotherarpy. I work from home so offering a calm and private environment for the clients.
I have 25 years of experience both in my private practice and working for Epsom Hospital, in schools on behalf of the Kingston Bereavement Service and at Esher College. My main experience is with individuals, but I also see many couples as well as teenagers and children. My previous carreer as a teacher has given me insight and confidence with children as well as parents.
My main direction of counselling is a solution focused approach. Most people like to see a result in a measurable time and the combination of hypnotherapy with CBT and some creative techniques produces successful results. I have been able to help people with OCD, travel anxiety, inability to conceive, relationship problems, lack of self confidence and many more.

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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
