About me

A Safe Place:

A place online counselling via Vsee or Zoom or on the phone. A place where you can explore difficult things in confidence, with someone who believes in you. Where you can unpack your anxieties, depression or relationship issues.

About Me:

I believe the relationship formed between the client and counsellor is fundamental to counselling. In a good relationship the client feels accepted without being judged, supported and believed in. Here they know that they have been understood and met as they explore the difficult issues, shame and anxieties in their lives.

Therapy and counselling provides a safe and boundaried space for the client/counsellor relationship to develop so that you can explore how the world within is impacting the world without. How your self identity, relationships, anxieties, shame and behaviours are affecting your life. It enables self-discovery and can facilitate change.

My desire is for people to enjoy living with "the whole of you in all of life", not governed by broken relationships, fear and shame.

I am an integrative counsellor, which means that I blend a number of different theories and approaches. My practice is informed mostly by the psychodynamic and person centred approaches. I also draw on attachment theory and the transpersonal (spiritual). I am a Registered Member of the BACP.

I see clients on a private basis London, in counselling rooms found in Central London, Marylebone (W1) and South West London, Balham (SW12).

Training, qualifications & experience

In addition to my training as a counsellor I have specialist training in working with sexual addictions provided by the Institute of Sex Addiction Training (ISAT) and I am a member of the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity (ATSAC).

Prior to professional training, I have had about 10 years experience successfully helping people address behaviours and attitudes that they did not want, did not like, but could not stop or move on from.

Post training I continue to work with a wide range of issues including anxieties, low self esteem, behavioural addictions, depression, sexual addiction (both those struggling and their partners / family members) and bereavement.

I have also run support groups helping men struggling with sexual addictions and have taught at conferences about addiction issues and shame based behaviours.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
