About me

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.

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.
