I offer online counselling for 1:1 private sessions using Zoom. I have a humanistic approach, using a variety of complimentary practices and am guided by the needs of the client within the safe boundaries of the counselling contract. I hold regular reviews with my clients, and really believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship to find and identify strength and growth areas with my clients on their own journey. Therapeutic needs vary at differing times of our lives and therefore the sessions with me can be for as many weeks as the client needs - this could be 4 sessions or it could be for several years.
I also offer walk and talk therapy within south east London for individual counselling sessions.
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 have a full time job in the education sector and have a personal interest in Art and Design Practice. I hold a BA and MA in Art and Design and am a qualified teacher.
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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Listening is a key skill in counselling, and it's not only about the me as your counsellor being able to hear you, it's about you and how you can listen to yourself, trust yourself and the journey.
