I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist. Working in an integrative way means that I use a number of approaches when working with clients. I believe that one size doesn't fit all. People need different approaches depending on what the issues are that they want to address.
Engaging with therapy can be daunting and can feel like a big step. I offer a warm, confidential, non-judgemental, and compassionate space where you can work through difficult emotions and issues. The work I do focuses on incorporating practical strategies alongside exploring your past, which helps to identify behaviour patterns and understand relationship dynamics in the present.
I work with anxiety, depression, trauma, chronic pain, addiction, bereavement, sexual trauma, and women’s health including postnatal depression and menopause.
Training, qualifications & experience
First class BSc (Hons) Counselling and Psychotherapy. Dipl Psyc. MBACP.
Alongside my private practice I have worked with Headstrong Hackney, which delivers open-ended counselling and psychotherapy in areas such as grief, anxiety, trauma, and depression. I am also in the process of developing a framework which will deliver psychological education around the menopause.
I am a member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
From £70.00 to £85.00
If you have any questions about how I work please feel free to contact me for a free 15 minute phone call. From there I offer an inital online consultation for £40. This will usually involve a disscussion about what you would addresss, along with the theraputic contract. It is important that you feel that you will feel comfortable working with me and that I feel I will be able to help you in what you wish to work on.
If we both agree to proceed to work together the fee is £70 - £85 for a 50 minute session.
I offer online or face to face therapy.
When I work
I offer sessions on some evenings, please email me for information.
