About me

I am a psychotherapist trained in both psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). How I work with you will be largely dependent on your needs and your goals for counselling. We will identify this together during an assessment where I will aim to understand more about you, the challenges you have experienced and the particular issues you are struggling with.

Our therapeutic relationship will be central to the healing that is possible for you in counselling. It will be a space where you will be 'heard' with compassion and without judgement and, from this basis, where the profound work of insight and change can occur.

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.

Additional information

I charge £50 per session.

I offer affordable counselling that takes into account your particular circumstances – this includes some limited concessionary rates for students or those on low income. As your scheduled space is held for you, missed sessions are charged for without one week's prior notice. Similarly, I will give you notice of any planned breaks that I am taking, for which I do not charge.

Further information

I offer one-to-one, in-person and online counselling from the comfort of my quiet and private setting in central Beckenham. Sessions last 50 minutes and will be offered weekly, with a particular day and time set aside for you. This can include open-ended therapy lasting up to 12 months or longer, or time-limited work of usually around 16 sessions. We will decide on this together at the start, based on your needs and goals for therapy.

Our first session together will take the form of an initial assessment, where you can provide me with a broad understanding of your issues and any related symptoms. This will include sharing information about your family life, your childhood and early experiences and your current circumstances. Many clients find this experience of being listened to without judgement therapeutic in itself.

I will take notes during this consultation, which will last for approximately an hour and is charged at the agreed session rate. It is an opportunity for me to start formulating an early idea of how our work together will proceed and also an opportunity for you to decide if you would like to work with me.
