About me

I am a qualified counsellor / Psychotherapist with Counselling Psychology training. I have 17 years experience of clinical work. I specialise in working with Alcohol & Drugs Misuse and have extensive counselling experience in this area.
I worked for 6 years in a Local Mental Health Charity (Mind in Kingston) and have a good knowledge of mental health issues and a vast experience of working with people struggling with these issues.
My approach to counselling is, in the main, integrative. This means that I incorporate various counselling approaches in my work.
The main counselling approaches I use are: Psychodynamic, Humanistic (Person-Centred, Existential, TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I also work with Therapeutic Cards as part of a treatment model SEe FaR CBT for PTSD and various other issues.
My work focuses on the therapeutic relationship between my clients and myself. This helps to enhance understanding and trust which are vital to the therapeutic process.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the United Kingdom Association for Psychotherapy Integration (UKAPI).

Member organisations

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.
