Choosing the right Counsellor or Psychotherapist can feel overwhelming at what may already be a difficult time.
I offer a warm, confidential and collaborate space, in which we can explore whatever feelings, thoughts, behaviours or circumstances you may be facing.
You may be living with anxiety or depression, feel overwhelmed with your current situation, you may be struggling with unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviours getting in the way of your happiness, or feeling haunted by experiences from the past. You may simply feel stuck, unable to hold onto fulfilment or joy, wondering when your life might begin. You may want to develop a better understanding of yourself and your patterns of behaviour and move towards a healthier and more fulfilling life.
I am a professionally qualified and registered, Integrated Counsellor and Psychotherapist, which means I am trained in a number of therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, humanistic, body, contemporary relational psychotherapy and dramatherapy.
I integrate a combination of these approaches to best work in relationship with you and to find ways in which we might work to address your issues.
I offer both support and challenge in a non-judgemental therapeutic relationship where you can bring whatever you are struggling with.
Above all, I believe that the ‘therapeutic alliance’ is what makes therapy work, that is, your confidence in me and the therapy. So choosing a therapist you feel you can work with and feel supported by, is most important.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an Advanced Diploma in Integrated Counselling and Psychotherapy and am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I also trained at Roehampton University as a Dramatherapist.
I have 8 years of seeing clients in a number of settings including Women's Centres and Families without Fear and have 20 years of experience in London delivering therapeutic interventions for young people and adults.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£65.00 per session
£55 - £65 per session.
I normally suggest having a session with me to discuss what’s brought you to counselling and to see what it’s like to talk with me, before deciding whether to continue. If we decide not to work together, I will not charge you for this session.
I am available for daytime and evening sessions.
