MBACP, Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy

About me

Hello and thank you for visiting my page.  I meet with clients online or in-person, depending on your preference.  I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I work interactively with my clients on wide ranging issues, including anxiety, relationship difficulties, stress, depression, low confidence and self-esteem, past traumatic events, self-harm and gender identity.

I offer a non-judgemental, confidential space, where you can talk about whatever it is that’s brought you to therapy.  

Maybe you’re struggling with a current life event like relationship difficulties, stage of life worries or work stresses.  Possibly you experienced trauma in childhood. Perhaps you feel as if you’ve lost your way and want to take time to understand yourself better, your thoughts, feelings, behaviours.  Whatever your reason for seeking counselling, therapy could help by providing a space for you to look at yourself, your reactions in certain situations or within particular types of relationships, and ultimately decide what you may wish to change, or accept, to bring you to a point of a more fulfilled life.

There are several different types of counselling and therapists and deciding who will be the right one for you can seem confusing. Please get in touch and we can set up an initial telephone chat to decide if we would like to work together. 

I work with adult clients from rooms in Bickley (BR1), Sidcup (DA14) and central London (EC3V) or online via Zoom.

I aim to respond to all initial enquiries within 48-hours.

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.

Accredited register membership
