I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist providing both short and long term options for individuals. I run my own private practice where I see clients from my consulting room in Walthamstow, London. I also offer online and telephone sessions.
I believe that every individual holds the key to unlock their own answers and find their path. Therefore I adopt a client led approach that encourages and empowers individuals to make their own discoveries through the work. Ultimately it is the strength of our therapeutic relationship that will allow this understanding and subsequent changes to take place.
I understand how daunting it can be reaching out to a therapist. Now you are here I would encourage you to take that next step to arrange an initial consultation. This will allow you to get a feel for the therapeutic process and how it might help you. Following this you can then decide if it is right for you and whether you would like to continue.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am also a Registered Member with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
In addition to my own private practice I currently volunteer as a counsellor for a community-based charity that supports wellbeing and recovery from mental illness. Previously I have also volunteered at The Awareness Centre in Clapham.
Throughout my time as a therapist I have been fortunate enough to work with individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures on an array of matters. I have fully appreciated being allowed into each of my clients lives and experiences, learning a lot from them along the way as well.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Initial consultations are £50 and all subsequent sessions will be £50 as well. I accept both bank transfer and cash payments. If paying by bank transfer I ask that payments be made prior to sessions.
For individuals working within the NHS I am currently offering a reduced rate of £35 per session.
