About me

We all feel overwhelmed at times, and these feelings can be transient or more long-lasting. It can be helpful to explore your thoughts and emotions in a safe, non-judgmental space. I am not here to advise you but rather to support your own choices. Together we can gain an understanding of what brings you to therapy now, and the thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour which may have been in place for some time. It can be helpful to talk to someone outside your circle of friends and family to gain an understanding of your challenges and emotions. I am interested in building an empathetic relationship which allows you to make sense of your experiences and gives you the insight to make the choices that will support your wellbeing.

I am a BACP-registered integrative counsellor. I will draw on a range of theories to support our work together based on your individual situation. Therapy offers an opportunity to look at your life, relationships and problems from a new perspective. I believe therapy can help people to understand their difficulties and experiences, and make positive changes in their lives. I have worked with a range of issues including bereavement, anxiety, depression, stress, work and relationship problems, migration, parenting and life transitions. I offer long-term, open-ended and short-term therapy. I have experience of working both on the phone and online.

The first step is to contact me via email. We can arrange an introductory chat and explore how we would work together. If appropriate we can arrange to meet for an initial session, at a reduced fee, which is an opportunity for you to decide whether therapy together feels right for you. During the first meeting we will also discuss the contract and practicalities.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre in London. I work according to the BACP Ethical Framework.

I work in private practice and as an assessor for a therapy service. I have experience of long-term and short-term work, and of working in a bereavement service. Prior to training as a therapist, I worked in the arts sector.

Member organisations

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.
