About me

About Me

I am a qualified and registered MBACP Integrative Psychotherapist & Counsellor based in Surbiton.

I understand that it is not always easy to talk about issues that you have been going through and therefore I thank you for finding your way onto this site today. I want to make it as easy as possible for you to speak about these. By exploring these issues, I hope together, we can work towards making your life feel more balanced and improve your wellbeing.

My Approach

My approach is guided by my Integrative training, which incorporates a range of psychological approaches. This means that I can draw upon a range of psychotherapeutic approaches in supporting you. For our work, this means that I will provide a non-judgemental space for you to talk about whatever may be on your mind, no matter how difficult, and will provide unconditional support.

I also strongly believe in the impact that unconscious processes can have on our lives and some of our work will be to bring some of the unconscious processes into the conscious. This work will lead to greater control and balance in your life, leading to a greater sense of self.

Together, we will look at ways to bring more balance to your life, improve your wellbeing and your mental health. We would look at coping strategies to help you, explore issues or triggers that currently impact you, look at the experiences you have had from childhood through to the present day and understand the impact that these have had on you.

Most importantly, the sessions are a space for you to talk about what is most significant for you and it is important to understand that you will never be forced to speak about anything you don't want to. I hope that together, we can explore the issues at a pace that is manageable for you and work towards the goals you want to achieve in therapy.

Getting Started in Therapy

If counselling is something that you are interested in, the first thing you can do is call or e-mail me to set up an initial assessment, which is typically 50 minutes long, where we will explore some of the issues you want to talk about in therapy and think about what you would like us to work towards. I am happy to have a 10-15 minute phone call with you to introduce myself and answer any questions you may have.

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

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.
