About me

Most people will find that there are times in their lives when things feel particularly difficult, perhaps overwhelmingly so. This might be due to a specific experience happening currently or in the past, or general feelings of being lost or confused. At these times, accessing counselling can feel like a useful support.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor and have worked with people facing a variety of issues such as relationship and/or family problems, anxiety, childhood trauma, bereavement, loss of identity, low self-esteem and confidence, work place stress and issues around pregnancy, birth, and new parenthood. I am warm and empathic and I offer a safe and non-judgemental environment for you to explore the issues you wish to, at your own speed. I firmly believe that feeling heard and understood by another can have a powerful effect and that through the building of a trusting and secure counselling relationship, a person in counselling can start to gain a new perspective on what's going on in their lives.

Coming to counselling can be daunting, whether for the first time or not, so we will take things at a pace you feel comfortable with.

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.

Fees

Please make initial contact by email so I can give you my availability and we can arrange a time for a brief phone chat. This phone call will be to discuss some of your reasons for wanting to attend counselling, and for you to ask any initial questions you may have.

If we feel I may be the right counsellor for you, we will then meet for an initial session where I can learn a bit more about you and you can see if you might feel comfortable working with me.

My fees are as follows;

In Peckham - for an initial session, I charge £30. For every session thereafter I charge £50 per session.

In London Bridge - for an initial session, I charge £40. For every session thereafter I charge £60 per session.

Further information

I currently work in Peckham during the day on Wednesdays and in London Bridge on Thursdays. Please contact me for further information about available times.

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.
