Dip Counselling. BACP registered

About me

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.

Getting started

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.

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.
