Hello and Welcome,
In a time where there has been lots of uncertainty, many of us have questioned the lives that we now live. When past and present hurts or unprocessed feelings have risen to the surface, we can find ourselves thinking, feeling and acting in ways that do not reflect who we want to be. Some of us have Grief, Trauma or Addiction that we just can’t seem to work through. For others, we can find ourselves repeating the same unhelpful patterns both in our relationship with others and with ourselves. If you’re reading this then perhaps it’s time to work through these things.
In such times we often need help beyond our immediate circle of friends, someone who is not only a good listener, but a qualified, skilled and experienced practitioner. Not only is it important to have someone explore your hurts with you, but also to help you process thoughts and emotions and to facilitate new ways of being. As a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist with a Masters degree and qualified in EMDR; I’ve seen thousands of people come through my door and undergo transformation, healing and leave with hope for their future.
I am concerned and committed for the healing, the well-being and development of you as a whole person: body, mind and spirit. I’m an Integrative Psychotherapist which broadly means that I’m trained in lots of different approaches and modalities. I can also use a combination of art, music, drama in our therapy as well as meditation techniques. I offer counselling for adults & adolescents, I also offer Christian Counselling.
Before becoming a psychotherapist / counsellor, I spent 12 years working as a family minister in various churches in the UK and in America. I have also worked as a counsellor and chaplain in a young offenders institute.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a therapist I have counselled thousands of people with all kinds of presenting problems from various backgrounds. I lead workshops and training events across London. I consult and clinically supervise staff from a variety of frontline agencies, as well as supervising a large number of other therapists. Finally, I also provide therapeutic support for the Police, the Intelligence services and those within the music industry.
I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy, BA(Hons) Counselling, PG-Dip Clinical Supervision and am EMDR qualified, I am BACP(Senior Accredited) and NCS(Senior Accredited). I have about 20,000 clinical hours of experience and about 3000 hours delivering clinical supervision.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
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.
