About me

Many people feel overwhelmed by anxiety, stress or depression at some point in their lives. They may be new feelings, or feelings that have accompanied them throughout or lives.

Counselling can offer support, comfort and awareness to help you to make sense of these feelings. With a willingness to understand your current situation and what brings you to therapy, we can try to trace the source of your distress and attempt to address it together.

My approach is based on an integrative perspective. This means that I draw on a number of theoretical perspectives, and enables me to tailor my approach to each client's individual needs. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and welcoming environment in which to explore the issues that are troubling you. My aim is to support you to make sense of your life in a way that leads to a renewed sense of hope.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me. If we decide that you may need another type of support, I can help you find it. I work in Shooter's Hill in southeast London, or online via Zoom.

I am registered with the BACP. I have Professional Liability Insurance, and I have DBS clearance. I undertake counselling supervision. I adhere to the BACP code of ethics, and I am committed to improving my professional development.

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.
