About me

Are you struggling to find balance in your life?

Feeling anxious, tired and constantly stressed out?

Talking can really help with this...

I understand life can be difficult at times and we all need some added support from time to time. I offer therapy which is suited to your needs and will provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to talk. I am a qualified integrative counsellor practicing in South East London. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

People can come and see me for a variety of reasons, such as:

low self-esteem, anxiety, stress, depression, low mood, feeling sad, lack of motivation, anger, loss or bereavement, feeling lost, lacking general meaning or direction in life, panic attacks, addiction, relationship issues and family issues... and much more.

I understand life can be difficult at times and we all need some added support from time to time. I provide safe non-judgmental space where you can discover effective ways to support yourself and create better life.

What to expect in your first session: Approaching the idea of starting therapy for the first time, or again, can be an uncertain place to be in. First counselling session gives you space to get to know me better and ask therapy related questions you feel are important in making your decision.

It is also where you can tell me more about yourself and why you want to come into counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB)
  • Training to work with children

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and a member of the BACP and I work within BACP Framework for Good Practice.

I regularly attend talks, seminars and workshops to expand my knowledge, skills and understanding as a counsellor.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
