About me

The therapeutic relationship is predicated on trust and discretion, offering a secure, impartial environment where clients are listened to without prejudice.

My objective is to create a safe space for you to delve into your thoughts and feelings, offering guidance when you're uncertain about your life's direction. My approach to counselling is characterized by openness to your unique experiences, with the intention of assisting you in understanding your challenges better and partnering with you in your pursuit of self-awareness, personal development, and wellbeing.

I employ an integrative approach with clients, utilizing person-centred, psychodynamic, and transpersonal models. This approach facilitates the exploration of your current experiences and the influence of your past on your thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. When suitable, I incorporate transpersonal elements, encouraging you to investigate deeper aspects of your selfhood, identity, and existence.

I have successfully worked with clients dealing with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, bereavement, life changes, self-esteem, and self-worth. Additionally, I handle existential issues like loss of purpose or direction, relationship difficulties, co-dependency, and stress. As a trauma-informed counsellor, I have experience working with Complex PTSD and issues related to sexuality and concerns unique to the LGBTQ+ community.

In addition, as a couples counsellor trained by Relate, I utilize systemic and psychodynamic models to comprehend the internal and external problems that could be creating challenges in your relationship.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am trained in integrative counselling, using both person-centred and psychodynamic approaches. I completed my CPCAB Diploma training in Therapeutic Counselling with London South Bank University.

I have experience counselling with the NHS in Lambeth and Sutton within the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies Service.

I have also worked with Relate in Mid-Surrey as a Relationship Counsellor, helping couples through issues with a systemic and psychodynamic approach.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership
