About me

I am a BACP registered counsellor offering private short and longer-term counselling in Hackney (E8) and online. Counselling offers you a safe, confidential space to talk about anything you might be going through. The work aims to support whatever growth or change you want to move towards in your life, or you may just sense that you need support right now.

I take an integrative approach and tailor the process as needed for you. Sometimes we need space to process, sometimes we need more guidance. I am able to facilitate more practical psychological work as well as work with the unconscious or existential concerns. I can introduce more creative techniques, or focus simply on an active and exploratory conversation. We will regularly check-in to discuss how sessions are going in order to change direction or approach as needed, which helps ensure the client-therapist relationship works as effectively as possible.

Training, qualifications & experience

I practice with clients of all ages and backgrounds based on a sound ethical framework and the strictest standards of practice, attending regular supervision and investing in my continued professional development.

My training was in Psychosynthesis counselling, an approach which focuses on the potential of the individual, and considers the wider systems and conditions that impact our lives. The aim of psychosynthesis therapy is greater psychological integration and emotional health.

I’ve volunteered in a variety of posts with mental health support charities since 2010, more recently as a counsellor providing short and long-term support to adults and teenagers. I have spent my professional career in people focused roles and am also trained in executive coaching.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

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.
