Is life difficult for you at the moment? Often a life event is the catalyst to start reflecting on our lives. We may want to learn more about ourselves, gain insight into our thoughts and feelings, improve the quality of our lives and relationships, or just have someone to talk to who will hear our story and support us as we work through our difficulties.
Therapy gives us the time and space to reflect on what works for us in our lives and think about changes we might like to make. Therapy gives us greater awareness and understanding of our emotions and our behaviours. With this awareness, we feel more in control of our lives, and are able to make more informed choices.
Due to the Covid-19 virus I am not currently seeing clients face to face but online using Zoom. I always undertake such conversations in private with the same level of confidentiality as if working face to face.
Our first session is an opportunity for us to meet and for you to tell me something of your story. This is also a time for us to consider if we are a good 'fit' for each other and how we might work together to bring change. If you would like to book an exploratory first session please email me.
I work from my garden room on Richmond Hill. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
I also work at The Listening Space which is located in David Lloyd Hampton (you do not have to be a member of David Lloyd to access The Listening Space). Email: email@example.com www.thelisteningspace.org
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a PG Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling and an MSc in Humanistic Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute London. I undertake regular professional supervision to support my practice and engage in continuing professional development (CPD).
In addition to adults I am an experienced student and young person counsellor working within close proximity to the American International University in Richmond campus, Roehampton University and St Mary's University Twickenham.
Alongside private practice I have worked with a local charitable mental health organisation and for a Youth Counselling Service. I have also worked as a school counsellor for a local secondary school.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abode by its Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy www.bacp.org.
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 membership
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.
