PgDip MBACP (Accred)

About me

I provide a safe space in which to explore anxieties, addictions, relationship problems, panic attacks, and life’s difficulties and disappointments. Understanding your life more clearly, and in a more balanced way, can have a powerful, healing effect. My approach is supportive, secure, non-judgemental and completely confidential.

I have practice rooms close to Clapham Junction station and Battersea Park.

I hold a PgDip in Psychosynthesis counselling and I am BACP registered and  accredited.

I currently offer face to face sessions at my Clapham Junction practice and online video sessions via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime.

Training, qualifications & experience

PgDip Psychosynthesis Counselling

MBACP (Accred)

I am experienced in short-term counselling and open-ended long term therapy.  I am accredited by the Psychosynthesis Trust and BACP, the body that ensures standards in counselling and psychotherapy are maintained. I work with generalised anxiety, stress and panic disorders, performance anxiety and creative block. I have extensive experience of working with alcohol, drug, gambling, sex and internet addictions, and with those experiencing the everyday stresses of life in an increasingly difficult world.

I have thirty years experience working within the creative industries and twenty years of working with addictions.

My clients range widely from adolescents suffering the burden of parental expectations to older clients experiencing difficulties accepting life changes and in search of more meaning and peace in their life.

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.

Further information

Psychosynthesis is a mind, body and spirit model of psychotherapy that looks at the whole person in therapy. Concerned with the realisation of individual potential, and harmonisation of all elements of the personality, it is unique in that it looks beyond what is being presented by the client to what positive element is trying to emerge.

It was conceived by the Italian psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli (1888 - 1974), who held a unified conception of human development and created an organised system of techniques to be applied in the fields of therapy, education and medicine.

Among the methods used are creative visualisation, free drawing, the training of the will, physical expression, writing, subpersonalities and disidentification, meditation, interpersonal and group work.
