Sharing troubles, particularly if it's for the very first time can seem quite daunting, therefore it's important I create a comfortable and safe environment so you can get straight to heart of the matter.
Gaining a better perspective on problems and finding ways to move forward helps ease emotional pain and confusion. My aim is to help you work through your concerns and find better ways of living a more fulfilled life.
I have been practising counselling in Hampton for the past 12 years working with a wide range of issues. I work on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period with individuals and young people. My approach will depend on how long you are able or wish to commit to the process.

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.
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.

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).
