About me

Often life happens at a faster process than we can process. Counselling can give you the space to do this, and as such can be surprisingly valuable.

Some people need a few sessions some longer. either way my integrative training in counselling means I can adapt to each client, whether exploring your past experiences and making sense of them, or immediate concerns that require goals and a focus on solutions.

About My Sessions

I acknowledge that the client is a expert on themselves. I see the sessions as client driven placing value on individual autonomy and reflection rather than analysis. I work cooperatively with the client to assist them to find their own way to personal development and positive change.

I see counselling as a two-way relationship both working towards a better understanding of the difficulties and issues that you are experiencing. I aim to help you to gain the confidence and self-awareness to make better decisions and take more control of your life. I offer a non-judgmental respectful space with a genuine desire for us to work together to help you to better understand yourself and support you to make your own decisions.

I work at home, which is an easy journey by bus from Stratford East or Leytonstone.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
