I am an insightful, intuitive and naturally empathic qualified integrative counsellor who has a strong passion to support my clients to begin to heal trauma, raise self-awareness and self-esteem, create healthier behaviours/thinking patterns and make the necessary changes needed to live a full life.
For me, the most important part of therapy is creating a warm and trusting environment where individuals can feel safe to talk and feel heard and understood as I fully understand that it can sometimes be difficult to talk to friends and family about sensitive topics for many different reasons.
My role is not to give advice or tell individuals how to live their lives, but to empower my clients to come to their own conclusions when deciding what changes they’d like to make and how. One of my core beliefs is that it’s mainly relationships that cause the most pain and suffering but it’s also through supportive relationships that the most powerful healing can be experienced.
I can offer short term or long term face to face, online or telephone sessions and am based in the borough of Bromley and South East London.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have knowledge and many years experience of working with adults of all ages who are suffering with co-dependency and addiction to alcohol and/or drugs with other cross addiction issues such as food, shopping or gambling etc. I also have many years experience of working with mental health and emotional distress such as depression and anxiety, loss and bereavement, childhood trauma and abuse, rejection and abandonment, guilt and shame, relationship and boundary issues and the various different types of stress that impact everyday lives.
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.
