(Dip.Couns, MBACP Accred) Therapeutic Counsellor

About me

If you are struggling with stress, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship problems or if you feel you are unable to escape from a pattern of harmful or limiting behaviour, counselling can help. I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where we can work together to enable you to move towards greater self-acceptance and positive change.

I am trained in various techniques that I use to help with a range of difficulties including anger, obsession, feeling ‘different’, low self-esteem as well as historic or current family problems. I also have specialised knowledge and experience in working with drug or alcohol problems and other addictions or compulsive behaviours.

Please email or call to arrange a FREE consultation. This is a chance for us to meet and explore what you are hoping to get from counselling and how I can help. There is no obligation to continue with the therapy and I may suggest alternative sources of help and support.  If you wish to continue working together we will arrange regular weekly sessions of 50 minutes.

I welcome you to call or text me on 07720 300992 or click here to send me an email.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a CPCAB level 4 Diploma in integrative therapeutic counselling from the Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Academy.

I have been involved in personal development and particularly in drug and alcohol recovery, for over 30 years.

I have worked extensively with drug and alcohol clients at Turning-Point Croydon as well as through 12-step groups and in prison service. 

I have provided 1-2-1 therapy at Everyman Project, as part of a programme for men who are violent and abusive. I am now a board member for this charity. 

I have also provided therapy as a volunteer counsellor for West Kent Mind. 

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.

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.

Accredited register membership
