I am an experienced counsellor who has been working therapeutically with both children and adults for over 15 years.
I offer a compassionate, safe and confidential environment that supports the exploration and expression of feelings, thoughts, beliefs and circumstances that may be having an adverse effect on emotional well-being and quality of life.
Sometimes we just need a space to be still and reflect, a space where we feel accepted, understood and supported in gaining a deeper awareness into why we behave the way we do or that can offer us an alternative perspective on challenging life situations.
My aim is to support you in making sense of your life and working with you in moving to where you would like to be.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and supervisor. My main model is person-centred but I offer an integrative approach based on the needs of the client, drawing upon CBT, psychodynamic and short term solution focused approaches to enhance the therapeutic process.
I spent two years working as a bereavement counsellor and a further two years running a practice along with three other counsellors offering counselling and supervision to counselling students from Lewisham College as well as to people in the local community.
I currently work for a children’s mental health charity as an Area Manager, line- managing and providing supervision to 20 School Project Managers. School Project Managers are qualified counsellors who run school based counselling projects, offering counselling to children, parents and teachers in schools.
In my private practice I work with children, young people, adults and couples as well as providing supervision to both qualified and trainee counsellors.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
