About me

Few things in life are certain and that in itself can be daunting - particularly when you're having, or have had, a challenging time. Fortunately, change is certain and often therapy can act as a catalyst for positive change.

My core interests are: self esteem/confidence and relationships. Who we are, and what we do, not only defines us to others but also to ourselves. Relationships either make the world a happier place, or not.

What kind of counselling and psychotherapy methods do I offer?
For over 10 years, I have been offering clients SKYPE; Zoom, WhatsApp, FaceTime or telephone counselling sessions (nationally and internationally), in addition to Face-to-Face.

Do you feel that you could benefit from a confidential, non-judgemental, space to explore your innermost thoughts and feelings? Are you having relationship problems; do you want to get in or out of a relationship; or just feel 'stuck'? Is your loss too much to bare and you can't see a way forward? Or, do you feel that low self-esteem or lack of confidence is holding you back?

We are all unique, as are our relationships. On that basis, I endeavour to provide bespoke counselling and psychotherapy, for individuals and couples in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey. I also offer clinical supervision to qualified and trainee therapists or those working in caring professions. I am an Integrative-Relational Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with over 10 years experience of working as a therapist and/or as a senior clinician with clients in public and private sector settings, including: EAPs; Motor Insurance; the NHS and Private Medical Insurance

I offer short, or longterm, counselling for individuals and couples - in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey. The practice rooms are located in the centre of Kingston - easily accessed by public transport - with near-by car parks.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
