About me

Since studying Psychology at University College London, I have volunteered for many years, specializing in children and adults dealing with trauma, anxiety and bereavement. This has been varied and demanding and I have also travelled widely.

My first volunteering experience was at Great Ormond Street Hospital as a Volunteer assistant play therapist. Since 2018 I have been a bereavement volunteer and since 2021 a supervisor for Cruse charity working with adults and children. I also work as a volunteer counsellor for Royal Trinity Hospice Clapham working with clients pre and post bereavement. In my private work I offer some subsidised sessions.

I was Vice Chair of Lambeth & Southwark Mind for 4 years after volunteering for 2 years as a counsellor for them and for Princes Trust.

As an integrative counsellor, I work with different elements in therapy and specialized in bereavement work. This means that I can take different approaches to help each individual cope with their unique problems and world.

I work with the here and now, the present and the past, with childhood memories, beliefs and thoughts which affect us in our everyday lives. Together we can explore how to reach your ultimate goals and to enable your inner self to be unlocked and understood. I respect that we all experience life differently, depending on our past, our culture and unique lens.

I place the relationship between therapist and client at the heart of my work by creating a safe, trusting, caring, confidential and non judgmental space for you.

I currently offer sessions by telephone, Zoom and Skype counselling for adults, students and young adults.

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.
