Counsellor, Fulham, South West London

About me

I am a BACP Accredited Humanistic Counsellor with extensive clinical experience, working in South West London. My private practice is situated in a beautiful room in Fulham, two minutes away from Putney Bridge station. I have experience working with anxiety, stress, depression, relationship problems, narcissistic abuse, emotional abuse, trauma, "stuck-ness". My belief is that the trusting relationship between the therapist and the client can provide a safe base for the client to explore life patterns and contemplate change. I am bilingual and can work with Hungarians. My specialist area is narcissistic abuse recovery. I have supported many clients in rebuilding their lives after years of narcissistic abuse.

Member organisations


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.
