About me

Hello,

Welcome to my profile! If you are reading this there is a possibility you have made a decision you have had enough of dealing with life and its struggles on your own. This is a first step to embark on a journey of self-exploration and finding what and why is bothering you and more importantly, what can be done about it. Its daunting and hard. But struggling in isolation, as you might know, is also hard and exhausting. The experience of recent months, for which there is no manual or template, has tested your psychological resilience on many levels and you found yourself struggling more and more with every day existence and its challenges. That can manifests itself in various ways: lack of sense of wellbeing, anxiety, depressive episodes, emotional flashbacks, compulsive behaviours around eating, alcohol consumption or mind altering substances and many others. Old ways of coping are no longer serving you in ways you want them to or are simply not available.
You may also feel a sense of being stuck, lack of hope, unable to cope in the context of relationships and feeling deprived of connection with friends. My integrative training, professional philosophy and personal experience have made me into a great believer that people are emotionally creative, resourceful problem solvers and those qualities can be tapped into in a non-judgmental safe space , which I strive to provide for you. But please, be assured, it’s your space, your pace, your needs. I am not saying therapy is always the answer to all the questions but there is a good chance that together we can explore your unique questions, your specific answers and your personalised path to connect with your emotional intelligence. This in turn has a potential to translate itself into a better quality of your life, regardless of your personal definition of it.

I am registered with AXA PPP and Vitality Insurance.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
