About me

I’m a BACP registered integrative therapist offering counselling and psychotherapy in London, both in-person and online.  

To truly understand where you’re coming from, it’s important for me to learn about who you are and understand your current issues in the context of past experiences and how you have been impacted by cultural, societal or familial pressures. I’m interested in engaging people as their true selves and working together to create a safe, authentic and vulnerable connection. This will help us explore who you are and where you come from – your personal circumstances, identities and values.

I’m interactive, open, curious and collaborative – I’m not a ‘blank canvas’. or neutral therapist. I show up as myself in the therapy room and own my cultural perspectives and experiences. I grew up in Vancouver, Canada as a child of immigrants and have lived in the UK for 12 years.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP Registered Humanistic Integrative Counsellor & Therapist and have an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling from CPPD (Centre for Personal and Professional Development) in London. 

I also have experience working within the NHS and community mental health.

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.
