I am a fully qualified and registered Member of the BACP (The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
As a therapist, I offer a non-judgemental, safe space where you can talk about your feelings openly.
Therapy can provide a supportive relationship, helping you to gain a sense of clarity and build a greater sense of trust and confidence in yourself. Having the space to explore difficult thoughts and feelings can be very helpful in addressing the challenges you are experiencing so that you can start to feel better.
Together we can gain insight and work through difficult experiences so that you can start to feel more comfortable in yourself and improve your relationships.
To find out more or book an initial session please contact me via phone or email and I will get back to you as soon as possible. We can then arrange an initial session for you to talk about what has brought you to counselling, this is an opportunity for us to meet and see how we might work together. I offer one to one 50 minute sessions on either a long term basis or for a shorter period.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Minster Centre in London, a leading integrative counselling and psychotherapy training institute.
As an integrative counsellor I aim to be open, responsive and present to what you bring to each session. I draw on psychodynamic, humanistic and attachment informed approaches. This means I work with the impact of experiences in childhood and adolescence, but also pay close attention to current relationships and the here-and-now experience in the therapy room.
I have worked with relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, bereavement, feeling stuck, issues related to parenting, fertility, and work amongst many other issues. I also enjoy working with people towards discovering a deeper sense of purpose and stronger sense of their own potential. I am sensitive to social, sexual, and cultural difference and welcome diversity.
I have experience working with adults at therapy services in West Norwood and Queen’s Park.
I am a registered member of the BACP and I abide by their code of ethics.
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.
