About me

I am an experienced, professionally trained integrative counsellor and psychotherapist working with a wide variety of issues, and an Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I draw from and integrate a range of theoretical perspectives in my counselling practice as this enables me to adapt my approach according to the needs and personality of each client. I offer both short and longer-term therapy to young people and adults. 

What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?

At times we all feel stressed and overwhelmed, possibly as a direct result of a traumatic event or simply due to the difficulties we encounter on a daily basis while struggling to juggle the many aspects of our lives. It’s at these times that we can most benefit from taking space to reflect on things.

Counselling and psychotherapy are recognised as effective ways of helping you to explore your issues in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment. By focusing on significant life events, both past and present, along with feelings, ways of thinking and patterns of behaviour, I can help you to gain a deeper understanding of your problems, highlight any internal conflicts, clarify what you want and help you focus on the changes you need to make in order to achieve your goals.

Please contact me by phone or email, I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am 52 years old and worked as a journalist for 13 years before deciding to pursue a career as a counsellor and psychotherapist.

I began my training at Thames Valley University, where I successfully completed the Certificate in Person-Centred Counselling. I then went on to do the Post Graduate Diploma and MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Roehampton University. Since then I have done additional training including a Foundation Course in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at the Awareness Centre in 2012, Developing Skills in Couple Work at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in 2014 and Professional Training in the Therapeutic Use of Mindfulness at the British Mindfulness Institute in 2015.

During my training I worked in the voluntary sector for Faces in Focus, counselling young people up to the age of 25, and for the Creative Therapies Project, counselling Southwark residents suffering from a variety of mental health concerns. In addition, I worked for Tower Hamlets Community Alcohol Team (THCAT) for 18 months, counselling Tower Hamlets residents over the age of 18 affected by alcohol misuse.

After completing my training I worked as a sessional counsellor for Turning Point - South Westminster Drug and Alcohol Service for 15 months, counselling residents in South Westminster affected by drug and alcohol misuse. I also worked for Townley Grammar School in Bexleyheath for two years, counselling pupils. I currently have my own private practice based between Peckham and East Dulwich.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership
