About me

I am a qualified and accredited counsellor/psychotherapist and am registered with BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists).   I have been working in the NHS as a counsellor in primary care for the past 9 years and I also see clients in my private practice at two locations either in Bexleyheath or the London Bridge area. I offer both individual counselling and couple counselling. I offer short-term therapy and long-term therapy.

Choosing a counsellor and knowing where to start when you are wanting to talk to someone can be a difficult and stressful business. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is paramount to having a beneficial outcome, and I would advocate having a few assessments to meet different therapists to begin the process. I offer a one-off assessment at the first stage, for clients to talk through their presenting issues, and to see if the client is happy to work with me. I will always review the work as we go along, and I subscribe to the BACP code of ethics and Ethical Framework to keep both client and therapist safe.

My areas of expertise are; anxiety and depression, loss and bereavement, relationship issues, self esteem and confidence issues and work related stress. In my experience the counselling process is a bit of an unknown journey, and I believe that all issues are linked in some way. For this reason, I don’t like to be too prescriptive with what I work with, but rather, to keep an open forum to explore whatever presents itself.

I provide a warm and non-judgemental environment in which to present your worries, and will do my best to work collaboratively with you to explore your issues and make your life more fulfilling and happier. If you are interested in contacting me please do not hesitate to ring or email me at any time.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a diploma in Integrative Counselling, qualifying in 2004. I gained my Accreditation with BACP in 2009. I hold a certificate in Couple Counselling, and regularly attend workshops and training as part of my continual professional development. I began working for Oxleas NHS as a counsellor in 2010, and continue to work in this role.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership
