About me

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.

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)

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.
