I am an Integrative Relational Counsellor based in London. As an integrative relational counsellor I draw on several different therapeutic techniques finding the combination which works best for you as an individual.
Sometimes life throws the unexpected at us, such as the passing of a loved one, diagnosis of illness, divorce or redundancy to name but a few. We can also feel low or depressed for no apparent reason, or perhaps you have lost focus and direction. Most people go through changes at some point in their life and it is reassuring to know that counselling offers the opportunity to work through and manage these changes effectively with the support of a trained therapist.
Counselling provides the opportunity to:
- Explore your thoughts and feelings
- Make sense of conflicting emotions and behaviours
- Explore how you would like your future to look
- Gain a deeper understanding of yourself and reach your true potential
- Seek solutions to current life problems
- Seek positive change to achieve your goals and enhance your life

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.

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.
