About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist with 15 years of experience, awarded a masters degree in Counselling/psychotherapy by Goldsmiths University. I am accredited with the BACP.

Due to the current pandemic restrictions, I am also offering counselling/psychotherapy services online - fee £45.

I am trained to work with a range of emotional difficulties.

Whether due to troubling experiences from the past, or difficult issues in the present, we may experience stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or just a general sense of unfulfillment.  These issues can affect all aspects of our lives.  The goal of counselling/psychotherapy, therefore, is to lead a healthier more fulfilling life by becoming more aware of what holds us back and avoiding the things that throw us off balance.

You will be supported in changing unhelpful dynamics thereby gaining confidence in your ability to manage your life for the better.

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.

Key details

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.
