Are you struggling with the uncertainty in the world at the moment? Are you feeling down or anxious? Are you having problems in your relationships with others? Or has this time led you to reflect more on your past? I am here to provide a safe space for you to work through how you are feeling at the moment.
I am an integrative counsellor who uses a combination of humanistic and psychodynamic therapy. I support clients by being an empathetic listener and helping them understand the complex feelings or difficult emotions that bought them to therapy. I help clients by exploring their past memories and feelings, as this can shed light on difficult relationships they might have in the present.
I believe that better self-awareness and self-understanding can help drive positive changes. Trust is very important in a relationship between a counsellor and client and in order to help build this, I work in a transparent way and the space that I offer is confidential and safe. My approach is client-led, and I will work in a way that suits the individual, ensuring that the client’s aims are always at the heart of my work.
Please note that due to Covid-19, I am currently only offering sessions online and over the phone.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an MSc in Therapeutic Counselling and I am a Registered Member of the BACP. I have previously worked for the NHS where I offered short-term therapy to clients in Lambeth. I was also based at a Low-Cost Counselling Service, where I worked with clients on a long-term basis. In my clinical work so far, I have provided support for a variety of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, workplace issues, sexual abuse, loss, family and relationship issues. I currently work in a private practice at The Awareness Centre in Clapham.
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).
