I am an experienced integrative counsellor and psychotherapist which means that I am trained to work in a variety of ways to help you with your personal and emotional problems. I will listen closely, and without judgement, to what you say, and together we will explore your issues. We can discuss how past experience has affected your present-day feelings and circumstances. For distressing problems, like panic attacks and phobias, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) might help you.
Facing up to problems and coming forward for counselling can be daunting. However, I aim to put you at your ease by creating an open, accepting and informal space. Together we can identify the roots of your difficulties, what change might look like and what steps you can take to help you feel better.
I am very happy to work with you 'in person' or online depending on your preference and convenience. I use the secure conferencing platform Zoom for online sessions. I have consulting rooms at two locations in South West London: Hampton (TW2) and East Sheen (SW14). Covid measures are in place for 'in person' work.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have an MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton and a BTEC Level 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.
I have experience of working in youth and adult counselling services and also in cancer and bereavement therapy.
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).

Please call or email me to set up an initial session. When we meet you will have the opportunity to tell me about what brings you to therapy and what you would like to work on. At the end we will discuss if you would like to set up another session and we will fix a regular weekly time to meet.
