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)
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.
