I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor, having studied Integrated Counselling and Coaching at post-graduate level, and I am a registered member of the BACP.
Your experiences are unique to you, and so I will focus on you as an individual during therapy.
You come to counselling to get support during challenging times, or because you have a persistent feeling that things simply aren’t improving. I provide a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space to explore those feelings, by establishing an empathetic therapeutic relationship. This helps me to understand how you are experiencing things, allowing me to support you in gaining valuable insight into why you feel the way you do as a unique individual.
Once you have gained insight into why you are feeling the way you are, I can support you in finding ways to live a more rewarding and fulfilled life. Research in integrative counselling shows that supporting clients to find their own solutions has the best long-term impact.
You may also want to know how to move things on and make sustained long-term changes in your life. My training combines counselling and coaching skills so we can work together to develop ways to be proactive to facilitate changes for your future too.
If this sounds like what you might be looking for, please email or call me to set up a free 30 minute, no-obligation telephone session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Coaching from the University of East London. I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and subscribe to its code of ethical practice. I have experience of working in general counselling for HQ therapy in Hackney, as a telephone counselling volunteer for Mind and as a bereavement counsellor for St Christopher's Hospice in Bromley.
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.
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.
