I know from experience that it can be hard to know where to start, and to take the first step to find a counsellor. Especially if feeling uncertain, vulnerable or anxious. I welcome you to contact me for an initial chat. We can figure things out from there.
My practice is built on my personal experience with mental health and life challenges, as well as my professional training as a person-centered counsellor.
I offer a non-judgmental, empathetic and authentic counselling relationship.
At present I mainly use Zoom for online video sessions, but can make (covid-adapted) arrangements for in-person meetings as well. Please feel free to reach out by email if you would like to explore how we could work together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a certified, person-centred counsellor, and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I completed my Higher Professional Diploma at Lewisham Counselling & Counsellor Training Associates (LC&CTA) in London. Prior to that I studied psychodynamic counselling (Certificate of Higher Education) at Birkbeck College, University of London.
I have experience counselling adults and young people through my agency work, and in a London sixth-form college.
In addition to my individual client work, I am a Personal and Professional Development (PPD) group tutor on the counselling diploma course at LC&CTA.
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.
