About me

Most of us can feel unsatisfied, anxious, isolated, stressed or unable to cope  at some stage in life. Do your past experiences keep resurfacing and hold you back? Are your feelings of shame, duty and guilt preventing you from leading a life you want? Are you feeling depressed, low, unworthy, exhausted by striving to meet the demands of everyday life?

Whatever the difficult thoughts and feelings you are experiencing, it can be helpful to speak to someone who is empathic, objective and who can listen deeply with kindness and compassion respecting your values and your uniqueness. I can offer you a safe, non-judgemental space where you feel supported to explore and re-evaluate any issues you are experiencing bringing about change and finding a focus for moving forward to where you would like to be.

I adopt a holistic approach to my work, looking at the whole person and I encourage that person to become aware of their own inner strength.

I work integratively, incorporating a range of different approaches and I adapt these approaches according to the difficulties my clients bring including: relationship issues, anxiety, stress, depression, post natal depression, bereavement, sexual abuse, anger, trauma, low self-esteem and family related issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy from the University of East London which is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am a registered member of BACP.

I originally trained as a linguist and hold a B.A. degree in Linguistics and Psychology.

I currently run a small private practice from my home in the centre of Cobham and offer clients ongoing or time limited integrative counselling.

I also work therapeutically with young children and teens at Primary and Senior schools in Surrey, providing counselling to children, teachers and parents. I use creative  and play therapy techniques to help children tell their story - sandtray theray, drawings, puppets are some of them.

I’ve worked with local charities prior to this, predominantly with victims of domestic violence, domestic abuse and dealing with general relationship and parenting issues.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
