About me

I recognise that taking the step to access therapy can be daunting, and offer clients the space to be listened to and understood in a safe place. Clients have different needs and the number of sessions required will vary from person to person. Following an initial assessment, we will work collaboratively to decide what is the best way forward for you.

I am a psychotherapist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) as a chartered psychologist (CPsychol - reg no. 278042) and a member of the BACP (MBACP - reg no. 381499).

My experience is working with people who have accessed therapy with a number of different presenting issues. These range from trauma, addiction, bereavement and relationship struggles, to illness and difficulties in life that can cause anxiety and depression.  I also gained a number of years of experience working with clients who have acquired physical disabilities and complex health conditions and the psychological impact this can have on both themselves and their families.

I have worked with clients who have experienced bereavement as well as clients who are end-of-life to help them find meaning and purpose during these difficult times. I also have experience as a school counsellor, working with children and young adults who are experiencing psychological difficulties.

  • located in Gidea Park and is a bright and comfortable space with off-street parking.
  • DBS checked and my work is supervised monthly by an external supervisor.
  • My clinical practice adheres to BPS and BACP ethical guidelines.

Training, qualifications & experience

Training & Qualifications

  • Postgraduate diploma in psychological counselling - Regents University, London.

Experience

Trained in a number of therapeutic models, I have experience working with a range of clients with different issues.  My clinical practice draws on evidence-based psychological therapies that provide the best outcomes for clients.  This includes both 2nd and 3rd wave CBT and existential therapy.  I trained and worked in the NHS for a number of years in different services and have experience of working with people of all ages, including children and older adults, with a number of psychological presentations.

Individuals use my service for different mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety and trauma.   I also work with clients experiencing chronic pain and use evidence-based techniques that can improve quality of life.  I welcome individuals with physical disabilities and long term health conditions and have experience working with the complex impact that physical health conditions and the change to the body has on mental health.

As well as private practice, I work in a hospice with both the recently bereaved and people with life-limiting conditions, and a local secondary school.

I also volunteer for a charity as an education advocate, assisting children and young adults return to education following spinal cord injury.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
