About me

I am an integrative therapist based in Kingston Upon Thames, I draw upon a range of different theoretical approaches to meet the individual needs of each client, as I believe each persons experiences are unique to them. I am experienced in helping people through their difficulties offering both short term and long term therapy.

I believe that personal therapy helps people to reflect on how their personal experiences affect them and develop a self awareness, as well as emotional resilience in a safe, empathetic and confidential environment. Allowing the client to feel empowered, whilst being able to communicate openly.

As an integrative therapist I am qualified to work with several different approaches which includes - Psychodynamic (PDT), Humanistic approach - Person Centred therapy (PCT) based on personal growth and self development & Cognitive Behavioural Therapy(CBT) used for specific phobias and anxieties.

At times there may be no words to describe a feeling or experience, I offer a safe place to explore this process with you using writing, colouring, images, pebbles and mindfulness techniques.

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.
