Whether you are experiencing anxiety or depression, or another issue that is affecting your well-being at the moment, I can support and help you.
My approach is Person-Centred and I aim to build a safe, trusting and empathic relationship in which clients can process difficult and painful feelings at their own pace. I practice in a fundamentally optimistic and non-judgemental way which is individual to each person I see, to encourage inner resources and strengths and to support emotional well-being.
Life brings us many different challenges and whether you are coming to explore a specific issue or because you would like to understand yourself better, I can help you to enrich your capacity for self-awareness and to realise your potential.
I also have a special interest in eating disorder and body-image issues, and working with young people.
I come from a creative background and in addition to my practice, I am a freelance florist. I also feel that I can contribute some of the understanding and learning that my own life experiences have brought me, to my counselling practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed a four-year Counselling training and have the following qualifications:
Diploma in Humanistic Counselling and a BSc in Reflective Therapeutic Practice from the Metanoia Institute (London W5).
Certificate in Counselling Skills and Attitudes from The Westminster Pastoral Foundation (London SE1).
I have also received additional training and supervision in my placements at the Metanoia Counselling & Psychotherapy Service, and at The Awareness Centre (London SW4).
As well as my Private Practice, I am also a Student Counsellor at the University of West London, and at Conde Nast Fashion College.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their Ethical Framework. I regularly meet with my Clinical Supervisor to confidentially review my work.
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.

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).
