About me

I am a qualified counsellor with a private practice in Richmond upon Thames. I can offer you a sincere and non-judgemental relationship, exploring issues and presenting problems that have brought you to this stage of your life, whilst supporting and guiding you in ways in which you wish to change.

I believe in an approach which tailors the therapy to the client as each person is unique and so I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-centred and Psychodynamic approaches depending on your needs.

We will discover the root of your issue and help to create a better understanding of it. This will provide you with the opportunity to make positive changes in your life and help you to move forward.

We will set a goal for us to work towards supporting you to reach your full potential by resolving areas of distress you have and altering any negative thoughts in order to help you gain a better more healthy perspective of life. At our initial meeting, I will assess your individual needs and together we will agree on what type of counselling approach suits you.

Your feedback is central to the progress of the work.

I am a registered member of the BACP and as such, work within their ethical framework.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss whether counselling is right for you and how I may be able help you.

Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly, face to face or on the telephone. I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.

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.

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).

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
