About me

We all deserve the right to explore our real selves in a safe environment free of judgement and to be heard. My approach is integrative and, as such, I work with clients according to their individual needs be they complex, or simply to make sense of the difficulties life can throw our way.

What to Expect

After making contact with me I like to meet up with clients in an introductory session which is free of charge. This allows me to meet up and explain more about the way I work and gives you the opportunity to ask questions and decide whether or not you feel comfortable enough with my way of working. I will also be able to get a sense of what you are coming to counselling for and access the suitability of my practice to your needs. In this session I will also explain my terms of business and be able to explain confidentiality and the importance of this in our work.

I am an honest and empathic individual who values the process of therapy and the importance of the therapeutic relationship within that. With this in mind it is important to make sure that you are comfortable in the first instance and feel able to ask questions at any time.

My Background

I have experience working as a bereavement services volunteer for Bromley bereavement services and St Christopher's. In addition to this I have been working for the last year in the IAPTs service where I have a variety of clients who present with complex and wide ranging needs. This has enhanced my experience as a therapeutic counsellor and regular training broadens my integrative approach. My clients are given an honest, empathic and genuine environment in which to explore their journey towards increased awareness and acceptance of self.

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)

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.
