Talking to a counsellor can help you to feel listened to and understood. It affords you an opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a confidential and non-judgemental setting. Counselling can help you to make sense of your past, re-evaluate your present and conceptualise a future you can look forward to and work towards.
I work in private practice in the Queens Park area, NW6. I am a ten minute walk from both Queens Park tube (Bakerloo Line) and Kilburn tube (Jubilee Line). I am also close to the overground stations of Brondesbury and Brondesbury Park. There is metered and RinGo parking at the top of my road and in the surrounding streets.
You can call me to arrange a first session on 07956 638481 or email me here.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist with over ten years experience. I have worked in NHS settings; running counselling services in doctors surgeries and as a counsellor in a Bereavement Service. I also work for Re…root, a counselling and psychotherapy organisation in Richmond, WSM; a work stress management organisation, as a counsellor for Nuffield health, as well as in my own private practice in Queens Park. I draw on Psychodynamic, Person Centred and Cognitive Behavioural approaches and offer the therapeutic balance of these ways of working that will be most helpful for my clients.
I started my counselling training at Birkbeck University and went on to complete an MSc in Therapeutic Counselling at Greenwich University. I have trained in EFT (Emotion Focused Therapy) couples counselling and have a NICE approved qualification in cfd (counselling for depression). I am a fully registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
