About me

I am a creative arts therapist and couples therapist practicing in Crystal Palace. I use an integrative and humanistic approach, drawing from a variety of interests, training and experience.

Some experiences that may bring you to therapy are:

  • miscommunication, mistrust or conflict in couple or family relationships
  • anxiety
  • loss
  • questioning identity or sexuality
  • work-related stress
  • emotional instability
  • breakdown in meaningful relationships

I am a member of the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC) and I work in accordance with their code of ethics.

Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
