About me

If you're facing life crisis, emotional or long term issues, exploring your concerns in a safe, confidential atmosphere could be for you...

I am accredited with the following governing bodies the BACP, NCS & ACC and am committed to personal, moral and professional conduct.

I have experience of working with a variety of issues, such as bereavement, anger management, depression, relationship issues, anxiety, low self-esteem, abuse and stress.

Part of my experience has been working with Victim Support Lambeth for over 7 years supporting victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and rape.

I work integratively, integrating the Psychodynamic, Person Centred, C.B.T and EMDR approaches. Working this way means I am equipped to deal with a variety of issues and this means also that I can adapt the therapy to meet your needs.

My office is based in Kennington, close to public transport, where I see individuals & couples for short and long term counselling in a safe non-judgmental atmosphere.

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.

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.

Further information

My work as a counsellor is very rewarding and is congruent with my own values.
Creating an atmosphere of safety, trust and exploration, providing clients with opportunities to find answers and make sense of their concerns, bringing about the changes they need to move on with their lives.

Working integratively combining the Psychodynamic, Person Centred, CBT and EMDR approaches means I can work with the past, present & future where necessary, making lasting change.
