Hello, and thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
Counselling provides you with an opportunity to talk about whatever you want in a safe environment with the knowledge that everything you say is completely confidential. You will be listened to sincerely and without judgement.
Through talking through your issues, counselling can help you discover and use your inner resources, enabling you to better cope with life’s issues and perhaps finding some solutions.
My training is in Integrative Counselling, and as such I am a great believer of not one model fits everyone, and rather prefer to draw on my learning and knowledge to apply the approach best for your needs.
I believe that the past can significantly inform the present, but that it is also important to be in the moment and work with what is happening now. Life can often feel fast paced and overwhelming, especially in the city. Having a regular time allocated to you, allowing you space to feel and say what you need can be truly invaluable.
If you'd like to learn more please visit my website, listed at the top. There are lots of further reading materials and blog posts that may be useful to you while making the decision to see a counsellor.
I have two practices in East London; in Walthamstow Village and Shoreditch.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BSc in Psychology and a Diploma in Integrative Counselling
I have worked in GP settings, charities, and private practice. I also have extensive experience working with more severe mental health issues such as Psychosis.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
