About me

If you are looking for support, perhaps I can help. I am warm, supportive and confidential and will listen without judging. I will work with you to process difficult or painful thoughts and feelings, and to identify and draw on your inner resources to live a fuller, more satisfying life.

I am an integrative Counsellor psychotherapist. This means I am trained to integrate a range of therapeutic approaches to best suit my clients’ needs. I use different tools and approaches to find the best fit for you.  This could include:

  • supporting you to discover your potential and ability to make the right choices
  • exploring your past and how this affects you today
  • helping you to identify patterns in your thoughts and behaviours and find ways to change them

It's important you are comfortable with your therapist before you make a commitment.  If you would like to explore whether we could work together why not contact me to arrange an initial assessment session. This allows you to get a sense of what it's like to be in therapy with me and for me to decide if I am right for you.

How I deliver therapy:

Short-term face-to-face work, Long-term face-to-face work, Online counselling, Telephone counselling, Time-limited.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling; Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapeutic skills and Theory; Certificate in Counselling Studies; Certificate in Counselling Skills.

I have also worked in the Education sector in a variety of roles for 22 years before retraining as a Counsellor. As well as my own counselling private practice, I also work with Young people in a low cost charity.  I also work for a leading EAP provider providing assessments, face to face and telephone counselling. I have also worked with IAPT NHS Clients in a Lambeth Doctors surgery.

I also hold an up to date Enhanced DBS certificate.


Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
