I offer online and telephone counselling for individuals whilst we are unable to meet face-to-face. My usual places of work are London Bridge, Fulham and Harley Street.
As a counsellor, I help people improve their psychological well-being, aid self-discovery and empower positive change.
My aim is to understand your experience as fully as possible, to help bring clarity to thoughts and feelings, and to create an environment for exploring positive change.
The therapeutic relationship I hope to build with you is based on respect, non-judgement and strict confidentiality, forming a safe foundation for our work together.
My clients often feedback they feel heard and understood and the warm, collaborative space I provide supports them to explore challenges, heal psychological wounds and make more satisfying decisions in their lives.
It is a great privilege to work as a counselling therapist and help people find a space to make positive changes and enjoy life more fully.
I offer a free 15 minute phone-consultation where we can introduce ourselves, you can ask any questions, and we can discuss logistics.
Should you wish to proceed, at an initial appointment we can discuss more fully why you are seeking support, ideas about what you would like to achieve and mutual suitability - whether I am the right person for you.
I offer short-term therapy usually with a specific focus on an issue or issues; or open-ended allowing for a more exploratory approach.
Call or email and we can discuss your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, drawing on Psychodynamic, Person-Centred and Transpersonal approaches, as is relevant to each unique client and their situation. My Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling is accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
As well as working in private practice, I see clients through NHS referral in Hammersmith and Fulham.
I work with The Medaille Trust who offer safe-housing, advocacy and support for people identified as survivors of human trafficking and modern slavery.
Prior to working as a counsellor, I obtained a BA(Hons) degree and worked in the commercial and charity sectors for over 20 years.
Over the last 10 years, a specific area of interest has been my work with vulnerable women. Often survivors of childhood abuse-sexual, physical and emotional; domestic abuse and violence; sexual violence; modern day slavery, I have found it a huge privilege to support them as they face their difficulties and take new steps forward.
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.
