About me

I am a fully qualified and BACP registered integrative counsellor, with many years of experience working with individuals and groups. I am a professional therapist working in private practice within Norwich and the London area and also provide group and 1:1 clinical supervision in London hospitals (NHS). I also have 16 years experience of working with addiction both individual and running community based recovery and support focused groups.

I undertake both long term and short term therapy. I practice from an integrative and inter-subjective process and strongly believe that the essential part of counselling is to offer a safe environment and a non-judgemental relationship. The process of the relationship is to create a safe and nurturing space in which to work from. I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, health related issues, relationships, work related stress/burnout, bereavement, addiction and many others presenting issues. I integrate my many years of working and use this to understand ourselves in relation to our world around us.

I believe that every person is unique, and the counselling relationship is unique. As an integrative counsellor I am able to use the relational model of counselling and also draw from other models and theories when needed, meeting the needs of my individual clients.

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.

Access can happily be arranged, please discus on initial enquiry.
