About me

I’m an Integrative Counsellor currently working from home, offering short and long term counselling for anxiety and depression.

I have spent my formative years volunteering for Wandsworth Carers and Westminster Mind as a Honorary Counsellor.
 
As a counsellor and a client I have come to realise that in order for a therapeutic change to take place one needs to feel understood, accepted in the most difficult of circumstances and genuinely cared for. By experiencing empathy and connectedness the client then finds it easier to start applying these same qualities in relation to themselves and their social circle.
Integrative counselling also brings together person-centred approach with relational psychodynamic understanding where our unique behavioural patterns and ways of relating to our environment gain a wider understanding, this often includes exploration of our past relationships.
Our strive for connectedness can be also expressed creatively using arts, storytelling and dreams. 
 
There are many ways of working with people to help relieve suffering and psychological pain, therefore I adapt my working style to suit the individual needs and wishes of the client. I nurture a genuine and warm attitude with an empathic, non-judgemental approach where appreciation of client’s cultural context plays an integral part.

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.

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.
