About me

I am an Integrative Counsellor with a small private practice drawing on multiple modalities depending on the presenting issues or areas of concern.

Alongside my private practice, I have worked as a school counsellor in the Surrey and South East London area offering counselling to both children and parents as well as, offering family support services.

For many years I have had experience working with adolescent issues, trauma, anger management, as well as working with young people and their families suffering from depression, anxiety, grief, stress, addictions and insomnia.

I am able to offer solution focused, short term counselling or long term open ended psychotherapeutic therapy. I work in a supportive, caring, non-judgemental manner and offer a safe space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.

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.

Further information

If you feel that counselling is something you would like to explore, the next step would be to contact me by phone or email and we can arrange a session to discuss what you would like to get out of therapy and how we would work together.

If you are considering taking that first step into therapy, just try it. I am here to stand by you and support you. Just think you really have nothing to loose but instead potentially more to gain.

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.
