About me

I am a highly qualified Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP.) I work with individuals on a one-to-one basis, once a week in a therapeutic environment. I offer open-ended therapy or time-limited/problem focused therapy for either six or twelve weeks.

Working together in a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space we will explore the presenting problems you are facing. If working with me short-term then we can focus on a particular problem and find a way for you to manage better. If you are working long-term with me then we can work on a deeper level getting to the root of the re-occurring issues.

Each weekly session lasts for fifty minutes, at the same time, in the same place. Our first meeting will be a consultation and will take up to an hour. We will use this session to see how we feel about working together and so i may gather an understanding of what is happening in your life, and to find the best way to proceed.

My practice is very accessible, just around five minutes walk from Wallington train station and various bus routes.

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.
