About me

The therapy

When someone makes the decision to come to therapy, it may not have been an easy one. However, it is an important one: you have now decided you want to make a change.

What might bring a person to therapy could be interruptions to enjoyment of the big and little moments in life: past trauma; bereavement or loss; low self-esteem; procrastination; relationships (past/ present). There are many other reasons, there is no fixed list. Whatever it is that has made someone seek therapy it is an acknowledgment that the issue(s) can no longer be ignored.

About me

I have worked as a counsellor for over 13 years. I provide therapy for Children (4-13), young people (13- 19), and Adults 19+.

My therapeutic work with children and young people is based on play therapy and talking therapy. Each session is mainly led by the child or young person in whichever medium they feel comfortable with (art, sand tray, etc.) Sessions can be time-limited a number of planned sessions up to a maximum of 6 sessions is recommended) or open-ended.

I have experience offering support to adults (and their families) who are living with neurological conditions (such Dementia, Huntington Disease, Alzheimer’s) and traumatic brain injuries.

I have previously worked with The Place2Be as an Assistant School Project Manager and counsellor. I have volunteered for various organisations and have volunteered as a bereavement counsellor and a therapist for a domestic intervention programme.

I am committed to my therapeutic work to support others to help build resilience, emotional well-being and good mental health. I do not give advice, but am there to explore options and give support to help make positive decisions and changes.

My personal and work experience has shown me compassion. No one’s story is the same. I believe we all need a space to be able to reflect, a space to feel accepted, understood and supported.

How I work

I use a client-centred approach. I feel that core conditions of empathy, respect, unconditional positive regard and being non-judgmental are an important base to any human relationship.

Therapy can help to open us up to face the difficulties that can be holding us back. Therapy’s not perfect, it’s not prescribed and can be challenging.

Knowing yourself is a lifetime’s work and a great challenge for everyone. Our past experiences can have an effect on our resilience in times of distress or life-changing events. This can then impact our coping mechanisms; how we manage the relationship within ourselves and with others. During therapy, working through the challenges can help to rebuild resilience and emotional well-being.

The focus of our work together stems from what you bring to your sessions - past or present. Sessions can also be solution-focused if there is a particular area in your life that is causing concern. 

Therapy cannot alter what has happened in your past, but it can help to repair your past; to help change negative thought patterns and feelings. Therapy can make a difference to you now, and for your future.

Training, qualifications & experience

I currently work in West London for a charity organisation. I provide one-to-one counselling and play therapy sessions for children and young people in the local community. I also offer therapy session to adults (19+).

I have previously worked as an Assistant School Project Manager/ counsellor with a children's charity, working alongside the School Project Manager to provide a school counselling service. During that time, I have seen how I can contribute to an improvement in the lives of those with whom I worked with.

I did volunteer work with a bereavement service for three years and a domestic violence intervention programme, for one year. This experience gave me invaluable training and experience to go on to manage and develop my own private practice.

Member organisations

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.
