About me

Sometimes life is just overwhelming - often we know what the root cause of the problem is and occasionally we don't.  Perhaps you have had a realisation that coping on your own isn't working and talking to someone else could help. Whatever the reason you have landed on my page today, I hope it gives you an insight into what I do.

I'm a person-centred talking therapist based in SW London and I aim to provide you with a safe, private and peaceful place to explore what is going on with you. You will have a confidential space to speak about concerns that maybe you are unable to discuss with anyone else. Rather than offer advice I work collaboratively with you to make sense of your world and help you explore ways of making positive changes.

I work integratively with different approaches. No one size fits all and so I tailor my approach to each individual. No issue is too small and I work in both the short and long term and will be guided by your wishes.

Having faced my own challenges and formed an authentic relationship with my therapist I experienced first hand the power of an empathic, caring, non-judgemental and safe space to explore my feelings.  My aim is to offer a similar experience to you.

Training, qualifications & experience

For the last few years, I have been volunteering with Release Counselling in Surbiton and worked with a wide range of clients from many backgrounds, with a broad spectrum of life experiences.   I am committed to professional and personal growth through, supervision, personal reflection and continued Professional Development through training and regular supervision.

I have always been fascinated in human nature and behaviour and following careers in marketing and teaching I retrained to be a counsellor.

I am a member of the BACP and am guided by and work within their Ethical Framework.

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.

Wheelchair user access

My room is up a flight of stairs so unfortunately not appropriate for people with mobility challenges.

Availability

I offer daytime, early morning and evening appointments during the week. Also Saturday morning availability.
