MBACP (Accred) Counsellor & Psychotherapist

About me

I am a professionally qualified and BACP Accredited integrative relational counsellor and psychotherapist in South West London providing support to adults and adolescents

I offer a safe, calm space in which to explore thoughts and feelings which may be causing distress. As an integrative psychotherapist, I blend different theories and approaches to suit your specific needs and work collaboratively with you to help understand potentially overwhelming feelings, patterns of behaviour and ways of relating to others that may have become unhelpful. It is a shared process to bring about change.

I have worked at Mind, KCA (addiction support), schools and in private practice, with clients from many different backgrounds and cultures and offer short and long term therapy, depending on your individual needs.

I am committed to providing high standards of therapy and continually invest in my own development and learning. As an accredited member of the BACP I abide by their code of ethics and have regular clinical supervision and attend CPD events.

My practice is in North Kingston, on the 65 bus route and 10 minutes walk from Kingston Station.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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.
