About me

Finding a therapist can feel like a minefield. Ultimately you probably want to find someone to talk to that you feel comfortable with, and who can of course help you. I understand how confusing and nerve-wracking it can be to consider therapy and take the first step. I provide clients with a supportive space in which to unpack their challenges. I will help you to get a better handle on what is happening for you, so that you can navigate the challenges you are facing in life. Whether you are struggling with big life events, or just feel lost or low, I'm here to help.

If you are interested in working with me then please reach out to arrange an initial session. If you would like an initial 15 minute phone or video conversation prior to meeting, then let me know. It is up to you how you want your therapy to progress. If we decide to work together after our initial session, I will suggest an initial commitment of 6 sessions.

I am trained in transpersonal therapy. This means working with feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations. It won’t be all about your childhood, though it is often useful to explore this. It may be about working out what it is that you want from life. Often it is about helping you to understand the feelings that you are experiencing today.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Postgraduate Diploma in psychosynthesis counselling from The Psychosynthesis Trust. This is a transpersonal modality. I am a registered member of the BACP.

I also have a background in psychology, with both BSc and MSc qualifications in psychology. I have worked as a psychologist with corporate and public sector organisations for over 15 years, and am certified in cognitive-behavioural coaching.

The clients I have experience of working with include people suffering anxiety or depression, or who have experienced significant loss and bereavement in their life. I have worked with childhood trauma as well as traumatic midlife events, loss of meaning and particularly clients with the desire to understand and connect more with the feelings and emotions that they are experiencing. I have also worked with difficulties in relationships.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

My London Bridge and Clapham Junction clinics are wheelchair accessible
