About me

I am an integrative Counsellor working in London.  With experience of supporting people working through anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues, anger, self-esteem, stress and similar issues. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and  the Association of Christian Counsellors who provide me with ethical frameworks which I work to and professional standards for my practice.

Every client is unique. We seek to provide a professional, supportive, confidential environment for you to reflect on what is concerning you. One size does not fit all. We will use the tools at our disposal to support you on your journey. For us that means listening very carefully and for you to be heard clearly; this allows you to begin to process your thoughts and feelings and to begin to be able to make sense of your feelings, difficulties and challenges.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BA honours degree in Counselling and Theology from The London School of Theology in London, where I studied for three years.

I have been working with clients in London who have been experiencing a range of issues, including bereavement, anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, stress, relationship issues and trauma.

I also work in schools supporting secondary aged young people and university students. I also facilitate parenting workshops and courses.

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.

ACC

Association for Christian Counsellors (ACC)

The Association of Christian Counsellors is a professional body representing and setting standards for Christian counselling and care in the UK.

The organisation is made up of various different membership categories, including Counsellor and Accredited, and requires all members working as counsellors to undertake Continuous Professional Development on a regular basis.
