Asking for help is the first step, it takes courage. My approach is Psychodynamic counselling which explores past events and experiences and how they have and can affect the here and now. Understanding the unconscious and facilitate your therapy process by being a sounding board to your needs and thoughts. I offer short or long term therapy seeing adult clients predominantly using Skype, Zoom or phone counselling, however I can offer face to face counselling based in Waterloo, London. I worked in the entertainment industry for many years before becoming a counsellor.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the BACP. I have clinical experience working with general anxieties, depression, suicide, bereavement and gender identity.
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I work on a sliding scale charging £40-£75 per session. I accept payment via Paypal or Bank transfer.
I believe in creating a space that is just yours, where there is freedom for you to talk about what you wish or need to explore. Ensuring that I am understanding, empathetic and compassionate to enable your thinking and growth.
