About me

Until March 2020 I worked as a NHS primary care counselor working in GP surgeries in Hillingdon and saw patients with depression and anxiety.  I am also a couple therapist trained at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships.  In my private practice I offer zoom sessions to individuals and couples. Couple work includes learning to relate to each other better and to improve sexual relationships, and sometimes the work is about processing the relationship ending and to rebuilding separate lives, and learning to parent their children together.


As a member of the British Association for Counselling and also of Psychotherapy (MBACP) and a general member of the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT), I adhere to their ethical framework for good practice.  

The first session is about discussing your circumstances that brought you to the present situation and whether we could work together.  Once the work starts we will meet regularly for 50 minutes, usually weekly for a short term or for a long term, and there will be regular reviews

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
