About me

“I am a human being first; therapist second.” ~ Nina
(Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy & Accredited Professional Member of The National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society.)

I am a BACP & NCPS accredited Relational Integrative Counsellor & Psychotherapist, with 20 years post-qualification experience, offering Counselling & Psychotherapy sessions tailored to suit your needs at my private practice in Wallington, Surrey.

My working life has exposed me to a wide variety of clients who have experienced multiple and complex difficulties. My Client demographics have included individuals of different ethnicity, race, gender, colour and ages, (adults, children, couples, families, older clients, student counsellors, teenagers and young adults), in diverse settings such as School, Counselling Centre, Cancer Centre, Universities as well as in Private Practice. I also offer Specialist Mentoring to students in Adult Education. I am particularly interested in working with both Neurodiverse (ADHD & ASD) and Neurotypical Clients who have experienced trauma and relational difficulties in their childhood due to their heritage and sexuality.

I offer therapy sessions on a short-term, long-term and single session basis. Sessions are delivered face-to-face, online (telephone & video) and also as a hybrid of both.

Counselling & Psychotherapy:

My working style as a therapist is facilitative. I work collaboratively with all my clients to ensure that they always have both autonomy and choice in deciding the pace, content and depth of our work together. I use a Relational 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, Relational 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. The Client and Therapists relationship is at the heart of the entire therapeutic work.

Clinical Supervision:

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

If you trained as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist outside the UK and want to become a BACP and/or NCPS Registered Member, I can guide you through the complex route process. If you are considering an Accreditation with the BACP or the NCPS, 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 currently Supervise Counsellors & Psychotherapists, (both Student & Qualified), in my private practice at Wallington and also online on Zoom across the UK and abroad.

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 and the NCPS, I adhere to both ethical frameworks 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.

NCPS
National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)
