Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist (MBACP Accred, MSc)

About me

“I am a human being first; Therapist second.” ~ Nina
(Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.)

I am a BACP accredited Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist offering Counselling & Psychotherapy sessions tailored to suit your needs at my private practice in Wallington, Surrey. I have 18 years post-qualification experience working with a wide variety of clients, (on a short term, long term and single session basis), including clients experiencing multiple and complex difficulties.

I offer face-to-face and online sessions (telephone & video) and have worked with individuals of all ages, (children, teenagers, adults, families, student counsellors, young adults and older clients), in diverse settings such as School, Counselling Centre, Cancer Centre as well as in Private Practice. I also offer Specialist Mentoring to students in Adult Education.

Counselling & Psychotherapy:

My working style as a therapist is facilitative. I work collaboratively with all my clients, children and adults, to ensure that they always have both autonomy and choice in deciding the pace, content and depth of our work together. I use an Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy model, which is a combined approach to psychotherapy bringing together different elements of specific therapies. Therapy techniques are predominantly client-led and holistic. They are also tailored to meet individual needs and personal circumstances. Essentially, Integrative Therapists are not only concerned with what works, but why it works – tailoring therapy to their clients and not the client to the therapy.

Clinical Supervision:

I am an Integrative (trainee) Clinical Supervisor, (Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals & Groups), and offer supervision to Counsellors. I offer Supervisees a space for reflection, within contracted boundaries, in one-to-one sessions, which can take place online, face-to-face or as a hybrid of both.

If you are looking for support to get Accredited with the BACP, I can guide you through the entire process. 

My previous experience include line managing and supervising a pool of 25 Counsellors and Complementary Therapists at the 'South East Cancer Help Centre' for 7.5 years.

I work using the 'seven-eyed' model and my supervision ethos embraces the 4 C's - Competence ethically, Confidence, Compassion and Creativity. The initial work revolves around strengthening our relationship followed by a collaborative exploration of your personal style to help you evolve and grow into the Counsellor you aspire to be. Our work together will be facilitative allowing you ample room to develop your professional practice, learning and growth.

As an accredited member of the BACP, I adhere to BACP's ethical framework for good practice.  My clinical work is regularly supervised by an experienced BACP & UKCP registered Supervisor.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.
