About me

I offer one-to-one counselling to help with problems such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, relationship issues and low self-esteem. I am also experienced in dealing with issues relating to gender, sexuality and child sexual abuse. I use the psychodynamic approach which is particularly well suited to dealing with long-standing issues arising from difficult experiences in childhood which are causing problems in everyday life.

I believe that we all possess the inner strength to overcome out difficulties and counselling is a way of helping you to find and use this inner healing resource. Counselling is a journey of discovery that may be enjoyable, enlightening, empowering but can also be painful as unresolved emotions are brought to light and processed. I provide an empathic setting where we can work together to understand the root causes of your difficulties and facilitate healing and growth.

Before becoming a counsellor I worked in industry for several years, latterly helping employees through difficult experiences of change.

My main locations are London Bridge and Chessington but I also have rooms in Epsom and Balham. I also work on-line.

I offer once-weekly sessions on an open-ended basis (i.e. as short or as long as is needed). Sessions are held at the same time every week and last for fifty minutes each.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
