I understand that it can be a big and sometimes difficult decision to seek help, so I'm glad you've taken that first step. At this troubling and anxious time, when isolation and fear may feel overwhelming, I can offer you a safe, confidential space to talk about whatever issues are worrying you, online via Skype. All you will need to connect with me is a computer, phone or tablet with a webcam and a Skype account.
My hours are flexible, enabling us to schedule sessions at a convenient time for you.My specialisations include: low self-esteem, anxiety, addiction and self-sabotaging behaviours, weight issues, loneliness, isolation and lack of meaning.
My approach is person-centred; I will listen respectfully and encourage you to celebrate your uniqueness, enabling you to build on your strengths and helping you to see self-imposed barriers.I work with people in a compassionate, non-judgemental and down-to-earth way. I see each person as unique and don’t like diagnostic labels for mental health/illness. I tailor my therapeutic approach to each person’s needs, so can work with you to explore your issues in the here-and-now, as well as how the past has affected who you are.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my training in London in 2014 as an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor. I have worked in the NHS with people suffering from a range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, and abuse. I also worked for an addiction charity, with the carers of those suffering from drug and alcohol addiction.
I am a BACP registered member and adhere to its code of ethics.
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).
