About me

For some years I have been seeing clients in my London and Surrey practices, and via Skype and Telephone.

Being a qualified psychodynamic counsellor, I see myself as both counsellor, working with clients to resolve difficulties and make certain choices in the present day, and psychotherapist, taking a more analytical approach to help clients understand links between the past and their life today.

I am a great believer that we are extremely complex beings, and within my work I try to discover what is happening for the “whole” person, as I feel there is no area that is unconnected.

There are certain areas where Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a useful tool in a clients' work. I choose to integrate this where necessary within my approach.

A clients' sense of safety and well being, emotionally and otherwise within the therapeutic environment is paramount for their progress. It is always my intention that clients have a “sanctuary” within sessions and the knowledge of support being at hand between sessions.

As a therapist I enjoy my career deeply and truly believe that everyone can become a happier and more fulfilled person through the therapeutic process. It is the most satisfying moment when a client leaves therapy a transformed figure ready to embrace life to the full. I always feel honoured to have had the opportunity to play some part in this amazing journey.

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.
