About me

I am a qualified Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist, working in South West London.

I offer confidential weekly psychotherapy for children, young people, parents and families, in a non-judgemental and supportive space, where clients can feel safe in expressing their feelings and experiences. Clients are encouraged to be their authentic selves and to explore both internal and external conflicts at a pace which suits them.

I have an integrative approach and so I am able to offer therapy based on the individual needs of clients. I may use a systemic approach, which focuses on problems which are a part of or have a negative effect on the family system. This can be useful in helping clients to explore conflicts and breakdowns in communication. A psychodynamic approach, which aims to support clients in understanding the impact of past and present events, can help in exploring how these events may guide their own actions, feelings, choices and ways of relating to others. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on how your thoughts and beliefs may affect your feelings and behaviours and supports clients in learning different ways of coping with for example, anxiety or depression.

With extensive therapeutic experience of working in various fields, including offending, mental health, Special Educational Needs, children and young people in care and substance misuse, I am passionate about the importance of a safe and therapeutic space for children and young people in particular and understands the need for individualised therapy sessions for all.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
