About me

I am a qualified BACP (Accredited) counsellor with a private practice in Kingston upon Thames offering Integrative counselling to individuals or couples.

Integrative counselling draws upon different theories such as humanistic and psychodynamic and may involve exploring links with the past and the present in order to help facilitate a more empowered choice towards the future.

EMDR was originally designed to treat traumatic or dysfunctional memories and experiences and their psychological consequences, and although the procedure has increasingly been used to treat a wide range of distress such as phobias, anxiety, panic attacks, pain, etc, it has primarily been used for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

I will offer you a warm, accepting and non-judgmental relationship, gently encouraging you to examine what has brought you to this stage of your like, whilst supporting you in ways you wish to change.

With a clearer awareness and understanding of our behaviour, we become more in control of our lives thereby more able to initiate wanted change.

I have a great belief in the human's potential and that everyone holds the key within themselves to find a way of living a life that compliments their true self.
I am by nature deeply but quietly spiritual and in awe at the magic and mystery of life. I bring to my work sensitivity, intuition and compassion.

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.

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.
