I am a integrative counsellor and have been in my own practice for the last 10 years. Since qualifying in 2006,I have realised through my work that having a good solid relationship with my clients is the base from where counselling can begin, this allows the client a safe space to explore their feelings even uncomfortable and difficult issues. I want the experience of counselling to be open, non judgmental and honest.
Beginning counselling can feel like a big step but clients are more than welcome to come for one session to discuss the idea before committing to regular appointments.
I have day and evening sessions available and am 5 minutes walk from Wapping over ground station. I have a comfortable & private counselling room on the first floor ( no lift) in an old school building.

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.
