Hello, I am a professionally qualified integrative counsellor with 10 years experience. I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I work at a private practice in South Woodford London E18, a two minute walk from the tube station.
I appreciate it may be difficult to seek Counselling when you are experiencing emotional difficulties in your life. I will provide you with a safe place to express your thoughts, feelings and fears and how to tell your story without being judged.
A session last for fifty minutes and I see people who seek time limited or long term work. I provide a confidential , supportive, non-judgemental and open environment where together we may explore and uncover the difficulties you are experiencing in your life.
This process may help develop your self-awareness, which in turn may help develop a deeper self-understanding in order to create a clearer path for you in the future and improve your knowledge of how you, amongst other things relate to a situation or people.
I work in an integrative way, which means I work within the boundaries of Pyschodynamic, Person Centred and CBT Approaches. These approaches explore earliest relationships to those of the present day, the here and now and how out thoughts determine how we h=feel and how our feelings determine how we behave.
Outside my extensive private practice my experience includes;
Volunteering for an inner London community counselling service.
Volunteering for a community alcohol team supporting individuals with different levels of alcohol dependency.
I offer a one off consultation for individuals who want to explore if counselling is for you.
I also work for BUPA.

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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
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.
