About me

I offer a safe, confidential and respectful space where you can talk about anything which is affecting you. We can work face to face, online or outdoors.

  • Traditional sessions, face to face in a counselling room (currently unavailable, due to C-19 restrictions).
  • Online sessions via encrypted Zoom link (training and setup provided prior to starting sessions).

Outdoor sessions:

  • Walk and Talk therapy - providing a different perspective by talking, whilst moving in a natural setting, such as a park.
  • Natural Grounding - mindfulness in natural settings to help reduce anxiety and improve calm and perspective.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA Hons, MSc, Cert, Dip.

Counsellor at South London Counselling Services, 2018 to present.

My research interest is the science behind positive reactions to being in nature, and how to use this in counselling practice.

I also work part time in Education and consult on how to use emotional intelligence to help students, teachers and families work better together.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Behaviour management between parents and children.

Re-establishing parental boundaries with aggressive children.
