About me

Like roller coasters, life is full of ups and downs experiences that sometimes make us feel overwhelmed with sadness, confusion, frustration, anger and/or scared feelings. Sometimes those feelings and emotions have their roots in our childhood experiences and early life and they will lead to unhelpful patterns of behaviours that will affect negatively our adult lives like our relationship with our family, friends and love ones as well as our professional life making us struggle to cope with the stress at work.

Sometimes you just need to talk with someone to regain your inner peace in a safe and non-judgmental environment. If you find it difficult to come to terms after a relationship breakdown, bereavement, loss, facing new challenges or you are currently facing low self-esteem, shame/guilt, anxiety, depression I am offering you a warm, welcoming and confidential space where we can explore all your concerns that troubles you day to day. Talking therapy can help you to bring into your life a sense of self-awareness that will contribute to your journey into a more resilient life. My role will not be to advise you what to do but I will facilitate your growth through your self-discovery. We will work together.

My approach and fees                                                                                

I am a qualified integrative counsellor meaning that I work by combining different psychotherapy theories and tools that will help me to tailor each client’s unique needs. I strongly believe that we are all born with inner resource for growth and healing ourselves but sometimes we need professional support to identify unhealthy patterns of thinking, beliefs and behaviours in order to manage more effectively the day to day challenges.  

I am based in Hampton but I am able to offer you all counselling sessions online (via Zoom, Teams, WhatsApp etc) or on the phone at present. This means I can offer you counselling wherever you live. When rules permit I will also be able to offer face to face counselling. 

Language

Training, qualifications & experience

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
