About me

I provide long and short-term therapy, in both English and Italian in my Canada Water studio and in Crystal Palace. I am also experienced in offering sessions online using safe and protected popular platforms.

Whatever the difficulty you are going through right now, you are not alone. All feelings and thoughts you may be experiencing are valid. We can explore together what may feel very confusing and overwhelming, make sense of it and find the best way to go forward.

I have a lot of experience with anxiety issues, including panic attacks; abuse, including sexual abuse; trauma often treated by using EMDR.

Please visit my website for more information about my other areas of work: work related stress, relationships issues and the self, and bereavement and trauma - www.counsellingandtraumatherapy.com

I am an Accredited Member of BACP and a registered provider of the following private health insurance companies/EAPs: Bupa, Axa, Lifeworks, Vitality, Aviva, Cigna, Nuffield.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and work within its ethical principles.

I hold an Adv. Diploma in Integrative Counselling, a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and a Certificate in Counselling. I have also been trained in Somatic Experiencing (especially useful in treating trauma and anxiety) and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I have completed my EMDR training and use EMDR to treat trauma and a number of other issues.

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.

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.
