I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and have been working for many years with individuals with different problems. I am very passionate about counselling and believe in the importance of individuals getting the right psychological support in order that they can live a full and rewarding life.
There are many reasons why people come to see me including increased feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, feeling lonely or finding it difficult to cope, struggling with personal relationships with others, bereavement, questioning the meaning in life, past traumatic experiences and finding it difficult to adjust to changes in personal circumstances.
I am open and non-judgemental and can provide you with an environment to help you find the answers to your problems. I believe the therapeutic relationship that i offer can give you the confidence to talk openly about your problems in order that you may gain greater understanding and control of your situation.
During the pandemic, my services moved to an online format. This proved to be very convenient for clients who prefer no commute, carrying out sessions from their own space. If this is something that interests you, I am happy to accommodate.
I offer both short-term and long-term counselling. Sessions are provided face to face or remotely.
I am based in Shepperton, Middlesex and also cover the surrounding areas including Surrey and Hampshire.

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.
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.

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).

Areas of counselling I deal with
I will try to be as flexible as possible with you regarding my working hours.
I have also been working in Brain injury for many years and have a vast experience of counselling individuals and their family members. My Occupational Therapy training has equipped me with an advanced knowledge and understanding of cognitive problems following brain injury, vital when working with this client population. My understanding of cognitive and awareness problems that can often present following brain injury allows me to tailor my therapy to suit the individual needs of all my clients.
