About me

I am a BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice and see clients in Fulham as well as Kensington. Over the last seven years I have worked in a number of public as well as private institutional settings including the NHS, universities and employee assistance programmes. My way of working is integrative-relational. I combine and tailor a number of different theoretical approaches whilst treating the relationship between us as the most important facilitator of our work together.

As well as being an important source of support for when you are distressed, your relationship with your counsellor can assist in developing insights into yourself and your relationships. This can lead to finding new ways to make the changes you desire. Clients often comment on the comfort and safety they experience through my presence and warmth.

As a member of the BACP I adhere to their code of ethics and my work is regularly supervised by a senior practitioner.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA Hons in Integrative Relational Counselling (accredited by BACP) and have further training in a number of specialities including mindfulness, trauma and Transaction Analysis.  I also work as a specialist mentor to university students with a mental health condition.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
