About me

I am a fully qualified therapist, a Member of BACP (British Association for Counseling and Psychotherapy) and a Member of the BACP Register. I am integrally trained and my practice is informed by different theoretical approaches and modalities. In my clinical work I match my approach to each client’s unique needs while adhering to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counseling and Psychotherapy.

Apart from private practice my work experience involves counseling at Centre33 and Hills Road Six Form College (youth counseling), University Counseling Services (staff team) and Cogwheel Trust, all in Cambridge. I also have the experience of working within different cultural settings as well as the academic environment where I was a lecturer and pastoral duties played a significant part of my work.

In my practice I offer one-off, short-term, long-term and open-ended psychotherapy/counselling to clients (individuals and couples) from 16 years of age onward, both face-to-face and on-line (Skype).

Languages: English & Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian.

Special Interests:

» Personal issues (anxiety, depression, self-esteem...)

» Family dynamics (family roles, communication within family, relationships...)

» Issues pertinent to older adults (retirement, losses, loneliness ...)

» Social inclusion (dealing with differences, feeling disenfranchised, struggling with masculine/feminine issues...)

» Coping with student/professional life (perfectionism, fear of failure, realizing full potential...)

» Work-related issues (stress, harassment, bullying...)

If you recognize any of the above issues and the feelings associated with them such as discomfort, feeling ‘out of place or depth’, or not fitting in then let’s work together, think together so that you can come to terms with what is affecting you and explore ways to manage or overcome that.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
