I am a professional counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS)
I specialise in counselling individuals with issues surrounding addiction and bereavement.Not only do I work with individuals who have problems surrounding addictive behavior but close friends or family who are caught up in the situation.
No client is the same and so I work using an integrative theoretical approach, addressing the needs of each person I see as an individual, taking into account their personal story and experiences.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in Social Work and a BSc (Hons) in Psychology/Counselling from Roehampton University.
I also completed a year in Integrative Counselling with specific focus on Person Centered Therapy.
In addition to my private practice,I currently work at ASCA ( an addiction support agency) and I I am a bereavement counsellor at Kingston Bereavement Center.
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.
