If you are feeling that you would like someone to talk to about your feelings or a difficult situation you are facing, I will provide a warm and empathic space for you to do this. Maybe you have had therapy before and it has helped, or maybe it is your first time and you are not sure what to expect. Either way, it's not about me having all the answers, it's about us thinking together about you and taking the time to understand whatever is troubling you. I truly believe that when we understand ourselves and our deepest motivations, we are able to make the best choices for ourselves.
Maybe you are feeling a little overwhelmed, or anxious or have a particular issue that it would be helpful to talk to a trained and non-judgemental counsellor about. If so, I can offer phone or online counselling and, once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, can also offer face-to-face work based in Clapham SW4.
My training is integrative (psychodynamic and person-centred) which means we may discuss aspects of your past that you feel are having an impact on you now. We will also talk about whatever you are feeling at the moment and in the moment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and a PG Cert in Couple and Individual Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have experience working individually with clients on a long and short-term basis on issues such as anxiety, identity, depression, perfectionism and general relationship issues.
Like many counsellors, my experience working online is a recent one, however I have completed a training from the OU and BACP on online working, as well as a training from the Online Therapy Institute.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Online/phone £35 per 50 minutes.
Face-to-face £60 per 50 minutes.
The first session is free so that we can judge whether we feel we are a good fit.
As a registered member of the BACP I abide by the BACP's ethical framework.
