About me

INDIVIDUAL ADULT THERAPY AND COUPLE THERAPY 

Have things become too much for you just recently? Are you struggling to cope? Do you find yourself trapped in a loop of negative thinking? Maybe anxiety has become too difficult to manage or you feel like you are crashing into a depression?

You’ll be pleased to know that it will pass. The way we engage with the world and our patterns of relating to one another can be changed which can make us happier and calmer. With my help you might find you can start to move into a new phase of your life. Free of the suffering, the negative patterns and any anxiety or depression that you think may be creeping up on you.  

It has been proven that the relationship between the therapist and the client can greatly improve the awareness of the client's relationship with others outside of the therapy space. The work we can do together could change your life.

Things can get better and you have made the first step by thinking of counselling and I applaud you for that.

THEMES

I offer Therapeutic counselling for lots of different people who come to me with a wide range of issues. Some of the issues that I work with are work stress, anxiety, depression, isolation, relationship problems, moving house, work issues, releasing old trauma, and many more life problems that interrupt our ability to live a free and happy life.

LOCATION 

Sessions will be face to face in my consulting room in South West London which is situated in between Tooting Bec and Balham stations. I also offer sessions in Harley st a few minutes walk from Oxford Circus station. Online via Skype / FaceTime or Zoom is also an option. Pls just enquire. 

COUPLE COUNSELLING 

If you are wondering whether couple therapy might help you and your partner then maybe it’s time to give it a try. Couples work can help uncover and resolve any unconscious communication issues. Sometimes we don’t realise what we are putting in the way of a happier relationship. This would start with an assessment followed by an individual session each. We would then regroup and set some goals.  All work is open ended and entirely up to you when you are ready to move on. 

MINDFULNESS

I am also an advanced yoga instructor. I integrate mindfulness and somatic therapy into my work.  How present are you? What are you building into your day/week? If this is relevant then we can build this topic into the sessions. 

SUPERVISION 

I am supervised monthly and I work towards the BACP's code of ethics. You can find more information about them on BACP website.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
