Life sometimes presents difficulties and challenges that are overwhelming to navigate alone. I aim to offer a supportive counsellor/client relationship with a warm, caring and respectful approach.
How I work:
As an Integrative-Relational Counsellor and Psychotherapist, I can draw on a range of psychological theories to find the right approach for you. I believe that we are impacted by our past and our present experiences.
Therapy can be daunting, but together we will gently look at what is happening for you, to gain understanding and help you find a way forward.
I offer short-term therapy (6-12 weeks) or longer term therapy (open-ended as agreed), depending on your individual needs.
Sessions are in person in East Molesey or West End Village Esher, or online.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) working in private practice and the NHS. I have helped clients work through many problems including anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, life crises and relationship difficulties.
- First class BA (Hons) degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling, Middlesex University
- Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills, Kingston College
- Training in Psychological Assessment & Support, Level 1 (NICE)
- A variety of CPDs to further my awareness, understanding and maintain professional standards
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.
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.
