About me

I offer online counselling and outdoor therapy for 1:1 private sessions. I am a person centred counsellor,  and am guided by the needs of the client within the safe boundaries of the counselling space.  I regularly review how the counselling  sessions are working with my clients, and experience the power of the therapeutic relationship to find and identify strength and growth areas with my clients on their own journey.

I also offer walk and talk therapy within south east London for individual counselling sessions. Outdoor therapy can be very effective to access emotions and make connections through our surroundings.

All sessions are 50 minutes long unless otherwise agreed. I offer sessions at the weekend, or 7-8 am and after 6 pm on weekdays.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor in Person Centred Therapy.  I work for a counselling charity in Greenwich as well as run a small private practice.  I have been working as a counsellor for several years following different careers in the Arts and Education and am qualified to Masters level.  Voluntary work has also always been an important part of my life.  This has given me valuable additional experiences all that come together to help me navigate and explore my own journey through life. I am continually developing my own understanding through additional training which I really enjoy.

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.
