About me

As a psychotherapist and counsellor I offer long and short term counselling to adults with a range of questions about their lives, as well as difficulties and struggles.

My belief and hope is that counselling can provide the space, support and safety for people to explore and try to make sense of their issues and experiences, in order to find a way forward.

I have a great deal of experience working with clients who face challenges with parenting, grief and in other areas such as depression, loss of confidence, anxiety, loneliness and hopelessness. I also work with clients who want to enhance the quality of their lives and relationships. 

My counselling rooms in Chelsea, London and central Winchester are peaceful and wonderfully quiet spaces. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered and accredited member of the BACP
I have a first class degree in person-centred counselling and psychotherapy.

I have also studied integrative psychotherapy at Metanoia and Regent's University in London and counselling skills/TA 101 in Winchester. I am a qualified CRUSE bereavement counsellor.

I have worked for many years as a counsellor and psychotherapist in private practice, a counselling organisation, a hospice and a sixth form college.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
