- I have been working as an integrative psychotherapist/counsellor for over 15 years, working in private practice and in the NHS. My approach is integrative, which means I have trained in different approaches in which to help people with different issues in their life.
How do I know if the therapist is the right person for me?
I generally like to have an introductory session where we can meet each other, have a bit of an exploration of what the issues are and what you may be looking for. After this session there will be some time for you to decide whether I am the therapist for you.
How many sessions will I need?
That really does depend on you and what you are hoping to get from therapy. This is something that we can look at in the introductory session. Some issues may be straightforward and only take a short number of sessions. More complex issues may take longer.
Can I end therapy when I want to?
You can end therapy whenever you choose. However it might be useful to bear in mind that therapy can often bring up difficult emotions and memories. Sometimes a commitment to the work is needed to work through difficult issues. I do sometimes request for a few weeks notice just so we are able to have some time to end our work.
My consulting room is located in SE4 2DG. There is free parking available. I am short walk from Honor Oak Park station (10 Minutes from London Bridge) and Crofton Park station.

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.
