About me

Integrative Counsellor, BACP Accredited Registered.

Does life feel like it’s become too much recently and it’s hard to keep going? Perhaps you feel constantly anxious and overwhelmed by day-to-day tasks? Or maybe school or work related stress is becoming too much?

I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space where you can open up and talk freely about anything you want to share. My work is based on a compassionate approach - as I believe kindness towards ourselves is a key to healing.

My goal is to provide the support needed for you to build up a set of tools that can be used on a daily basis to not only navigate life’s challenges - but that empower and strengthen your resilience to anything adverse. Ultimately, I believe that self-awareness is the key to growth! And I can help you to understand your thought process, behaviours and patterns of relating to other people.

I offer a free, brief consultation.  This is a good way to get a sense of who I am and how I work, with no obligations.

I’m trained as an Integrative Counsellor and am BACP Accredited Registered. I work within the context of the BACP Ethical Framework. Currently I work for one of Croydon’s Youth Counselling Charities where I support children and young adults aged 14-25 on long and short term bases.

Training, qualifications & experience

Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (Integrative)

Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies

ABC Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills

Certified Brainspotting Practitioner

British Bachelor (Honours) Degree Standard

Certified level I & II Reiki Practitioner

I have a social work background.  Previously, I've worked in a variety of different support roles with children, teenagers and young adults with learning difficulties. Seeing them achieve their goals, gain more independence and progress with their lives - against difficulties and odds - was very rewarding.  These experiences only strengthened my belief that when we provide the right environment for people to thrive, positive change will inevitably follow.

I am a Reiki practitioner, trained in Usui system of Reiki healing.  I perform distance and face-to-face Reiki sessions.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.

Wheelchair user access
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.
