I am a fully qualified integrative-relational counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I have a private practice in the Surbiton area where I offer short term and open-ended therapy for individuals (16 and over).
My aim is to offer emotional support in a safe and confidential environment, where you can share your worries and concerns and explore ways you wish to change. I use a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs and believe that the quality of the relationship between counsellor and client is at the heart of the healing process.
How I work
As an integrative-relational therapist, I use several theoretical approaches belonging to the Humanistic and Psychodynamic perspectives, as well as Cognitive Behavioural techniques to help you identify your problems and find new ways to move on. I believe that sometimes the pain we experience in our present lives originates from our past, keeping us from moving on. Through a collaborative and positive relationship, we can engage in a process of linking difficulties in the present with past events or important relationships in our lives. Gaining insights into aspects of the previously unknown self, in a supportive and caring environment can enable personal growth and the healing process to take place.
I am a French national who has been established in the UK for many years and I work both in English and French.

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.
