I provide a safe welcoming, non-judgmental space where clients can freely express their thoughts, feelings and truly be heard. I am here to listen to you and help you find the best way forward. I use an Integrative approach to best meet client needs. My approach is collaborative and combines the Psychodynamic approach where we examine thoughts and feelings from the past and the Person- centred approach where we examine how those past feelings affect the client in the here and now. My hope is to help clients realise that they have the tools to help themselves move forward in life. I'll assist in finding new perspectives that help to bring self-awareness, strength, self-belief and enable positive change.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a background working in the courts in witness services meaning that I worked with victims of crime, supporting and preparing them to testify in criminal cases so I know how to work sensitively and with empathy. I also have experience working with a variety of issues as I have spent time working in a college setting. This has led to me working with people of diverse ages, backgrounds and cultures. I have a keen interest in existentialism and all the thoughts that might arise from questioning our surroundings and the meaning. I am also interested in relationships, sex issues and communication issues.
I am an integrative counsellor based at the Awareness Centre in Tooting. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling and am a member with the BACP. I work with a focus on attachment theory.
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.
