About me

Sometimes we can all feel alone and overwhelmed. You might be struggling to feel connected to others, worried about what they think of you and trying to do your 'best'. Maybe you would like a warm space to talk about your innermost thoughts and feelings and to start to rediscover your sense of self.  What do you want from counselling? It's ok to have a clear idea or just a generalised sense that you are unhappy.

My approach is person centred; I am here to help you explore painful and distressing experiences by listening and trying to understand how life is for you. I will not leave you in silence or bombard you with questions but help you figure out what is troubling you.

I understand that deciding to seek support can be daunting. I offer an initial session for £30 so that we can see if we are a good fit. Please call or email to enquire and I will reply within 48 hours.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Higher Professional Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling and am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I also hold a Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling.

I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and receive regular clinical supervision to ensure that I am providing the best therapeutic support for my clients.

I have worked with adults with a broad range of issues and mental health problems over twelve years of practice.  As well as private practice, I currently work for a community based counselling charity in Greenwich where I see mainly women who have experienced sexual/domestic violence.

I have also taught counselling skills to diploma level students, at a local college.

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.

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).
