About me

Hello and welcome to Sage Therapy.

Since the Pandemic i have now moved my practice to online or working in nature offering walk and talks in our local Royal parks.

I am an experienced integrative counsellor, this means I draw upon a range of methods to suit each individual to help deal with what is going on for you at this point in your life, helping you to make sense of it all and figure out how to move on from where you are in your life, to serve you well from this point forward.

I offer a safe empathetic space, free from judgement for you to discover your inner strengths that maybe hidden, sometimes in life we don't realise just how strong we are until we make time to discover it.

Training, qualifications & experience

FDSC Integrative Counselling and psychotherapy I have worked for numerous charities, Together (working for well-being), The Place2be, Integrated neurological services and Hounslow youth counselling service.

I have over twelve years experience working in the field of mental health, supporting adults with mental health issues such as bi-polar disorder, psychosis and depression.

I have also worked with children and teenagers supporting them to make sense of the world around them. I have worked with individuals who suffer with neurological disorders, supporting them to find a place where they can begin again.

I have extensive knowledge and practised in the field of early childhood trauma and abuse.

Mental health is health at its very core, yet it is often overlooked by the many. Holding potentially damaging feelings in, is ultimately stifling yourself.

My belief is if you look after your mental health your physical health will naturally improve and you will begin to grow to the very best of your potential.

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.

Further information

sometimes life can throw things at us that can leave us feeling bewildered and a little bit lost. At these times it can be the hardest for us to admit to ourselves that we may be stuck in a situation

in my practice I work in a way so you can gain acceptance and clarity of your situation, to support you in moving forward in your life

Mindfulness meditation for clients that suffer with anxiety.

Anxiety is where your thoughts take over and become all consuming which can affect your day to day living in a negative way. Mindfulness allows you to begin to be in control, clearing the mind and in time channeling your thought path in a more positive manner. You control your mind, it doesn’t control you.

Early childhood trauma.

As much as we may fantasise about our childhoods being fantastic, none of us come unscathed by what may have been in the past growing up.

We all have a story to make sense of, perhaps patterns of behaviour that are unhealthy and unhelpful for you in your adult life? I offer a safe space for you to open up and understand what is going on for you in the present, that may relate to your past.

Acceptance to move on.

Throughout my career what i notice is the majority can speak their story, yet the struggle is to accept and let go.

In my methods I will support you in gaining insight and strength to move forward in a more hopeful and positive perspective.

“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering.” (Friedrich Nietzsche).

You don’t have to do it on your own.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
