About me

During these uncertain times, our mental health care is more important than ever so I am offering telephone and FaceTime appointments where face to face is not possible. Please contact me to find out more.

I provide a confidential, non-judgemental and accepting space for you to explore your emotions, issues and difficulties and express your thoughts and feelings.

My aim is to help my client gain a better understanding of their situation. As your counsellor, I enable you to be truly heard, which can often be a profoundly healing process.

I am passionate about the potential counselling offers to bring about positive change within our lives.

Training, qualifications & experience

As a psychodynamic counsellor, I am able to work with clients from different backgrounds who may be dealing with a variety of challenges. I have first hand experience of issues that affect people working in the city, and I particularly enjoy working with clients who are facing challenges at work, from difficult colleague relationships, feelings of stress and anxiety, not feeling recognised and those struggling to maintain a happy work/life balance. I have experience working with young people in education, men's issues, and also working with clients with eating disorders.

I have a diploma in Attachment based counselling from the Wimbledon Guild. I abide by the BACP code of conduct and ethical requirements for professional practice.

Attachment based counselling focuses on early childhood experiences and how these formative years can influence our lives as adults.

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.
