Making that first step to contact a counsellor can be daunting. However, it can also be the first step towards liberation from issues that are holding you back in life.
I aim to work in a way that will support you as you address difficult issues from your past or present and support you to explore new or different ways of living your life and relationships.
I have particular expertise in helping those with relationship issues, anxiety and depression.
I work from two locations. The first is a discreet, calm office just two minutes from Bank Station or one minute from Mansion House. The second is in my home in SE London, 20 minutes from Victoria Station.
I am a qualified Counsellor with a first-class degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling and a PG Cert from University of Oxford. Most of my counselling experience comes from working in busy GP surgeries in London, seeing clients from a diverse range of backgrounds. If you would like to learn more about me then please feel free to look at my website - www.hearandnowtherapy.com
Appointment times range from 8am to 8.15pm depending on the day but we will work together to find a time that is most suitable for you.
As an accredited member of the BACP I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

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.
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.

Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I am happy to negotiate some concessions for those with financial constraints. I also offer one space pro bono for clients who wouldn't normally be able to access private therapy. Payment can be made by cash or bank transfer.
