About me

My practice involves broadening the range of healthy responses that an individual can give to the issues s/he experiences. The brain and body comprise profound systems of protective mechanisms, learned since conception. Sadly, a lot of these - while necessary in helping us survive our early years - are often unhelpful and self-limiting in adulthood.

I am an approved adoption and attachment focused therapist. The removal of a child from birth family is an enormously traumatic event, and working with foster and adoptive parents legally requires specialist training, which I am privileged to have. I also work with biological parents who want to deepen their understanding of their child's trauma and loss, be it through the difficulties of separation, divorce, bereavement, illness, etc.

My current area of interest is in meditation, mindfulness and relaxation.

Training, qualifications & experience

I obtained my BSc (Hon) Psychology from Goldsmiths College (2004), and my Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy (2010). I am also a Barnardo's LINK Adoptions and Attachment Therapist (2013).

I am self-employed, and have counselled in educational and charity settings, and am recognised by Bupa. I have been in private practice for 10 years, and am DBS checked and fully insured.

I am a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS), and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP(Accred)).

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 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. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

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.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Access to both practices requires climbing a flight of stairs.
