About me

Hi, thanks for taking a look at my profile. I’m a mixed heritage counsellor currently working online. I understand that modern life can present us with daily stresses and challenges that can add up and feel like too much. I can support you to work through difficult emotions, loss and change.

Are you struggling to work something out? Are there losses in your life that you are yet to come to terms with? Is it impacting your relationships, work or home life? Maybe it’s just a feeling that something is not quite ‘right’ for you at the moment.

From my own experience of therapy I know I appreciate having time and space to talk and process things at my own pace. I seek to offer you a calm but, when necessary, challenging space to help you explore issues in your life, to grow and gain a greater understanding of who you are in relation to everything that surrounds you. I believe that having this awareness can create a stronger sense of self and greater resilience to the challenges that life can present us with. It can also help us make sense of past experiences when we have a better understanding of how we are in the world.

I take a holistic approach and like to look at you as a whole, with an awareness of both body and mind impacting how you feel. I will not judge you or tell you what to do but respect your process and how you function, working with what you bring.

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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Therapies offered

  • Gestalt therapy
  • Person-centred therapy

Fees

Sessions are £50, usually weekly and last one hour.

I offer an initial 45 minute consultation via Zoom for a reduced fee of £30.

This is an opportunity for you to talk about what brings you to therapy and for us both to ask questions to help decide if I am the right therapist for you.

There is no commitment to continue, but if you decide to, we will discuss how you would like to proceed. I often work in an open-ended way, with regular reviews, however, shorter-term work is also an option we might look at.

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.
