I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor offering short and long term individual counselling in a safe, supportive and confidential environment. I work in South East London, Abbey Wood SE2.
I am a fully registered member of BACP and work within their guidelines and ethical standards. My experience covers a wide range of issues and no problem is ever regarded as insignificant. I never underestimate the courage it takes for clients to pick up the phone or send that first e.mail and seek help.
I work together with clients and always agree a therapy programme that they are comfortable with. Through analytical or cognitive therapy, the aim would be to increase your awareness and personal understanding of whatever it is that you are finding hard to cope with. A process of re-evaluation regarding your behaviour and/or thought processes can then take place. I work with adults and young people (over 11 yrs) and couples.
It is now regarded by many health professionals and society generally, that counselling can change lives for the better and relieve stress and anxiety caused by many different problems which in some instances, have been present since childhood.
If you have been thinking about counselling for a while, or just need someone to talk to, perhaps now is the time to so something about it? You can text, message via WhatsApp, call me or send an email. You can do something to change your life and remember - its always good to talk.

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.

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).
