MBACP(Accred) Psychotherapist, Childhood Trauma Specialist

About me


A warm, approachable and deeply empathetic counsellor

I offer one-to-one support to both children and adults dealing with a wide range of life challenges in a safe and supportive environment in Charlton, Greenwich ( SE London).

As a person centred counsellor I strongly believe in each person's ability to ultimately know themselves and what they need and therefore I work flexibly with every individual, tailoring my approach to their situation. Drawing on my wealth of experience, both personal and professional, combined with my expertise in a rich diversity of counselling approaches, I take care to personalise the counselling journey to the needs of the person in front of me.

For younger children, my methods are play-centred, helping the child to relax and express themselves through play. But whatever the age, the care I take to connect with my clients and earn their trust remains consistently at the centre of my approach.

Anxiety, loss, trauma, abuse and bereavement are recurring themes in my work

as are issues around the stress and challenges of caring and caregiving including perinatal depression. Thus I'm able to offer a backbone of supportive counselling, helping clients of all ages to cope and progress through both acute shocks and longer term traumas. In all of these issues, my lived experience allows me to relate to the challenges of my clients in a meaningful way.

Various forms of childhood trauma can be underlying causes of ongoing symptoms and once successfully addressed in counselling these often gradually dissolve.

Counselling can be a daunting experience at first, but very rewarding if you feel ready to take on the challenge and are serious about wanting to transform your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

Having worked for the Greenwich Carer’s centre in the past, I have specialist experience working with Carers facing issues around Isolation, Stress, Anxiety's and Bereavement.

Whilst working for Mum's Aid I have gained valuable experience in Postnatal Depression counselling, an area I am particularly keen on expanding in due to high demand and  personal experience and as well as many clients from various backgrounds.

Additionally I have engaged with clients affected by Agoraphobia, Panic attacks, Insomnia, Redundancy, Child Sexual Abuse and Relationship break up.

My extensive experience in relating to children through play in a therapeutic way has been gathered in various nursery and school settings including main stream and Steiner (independent). I see young clients exclusively at my private practice in Charlton as they significantly benefit from a more homely environment and allows me to use a wider range of equipment.

As an Accredited Member of the BACP,  I am committed to abiding by their Ethical Guidelines and ongoing Professional Development.

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.

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.
