I'm a qualified and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor and a member of the BACP. I am based in Raynes Park, SW20 and offer individual counselling to people throughout South West London.
Having been in private practise and in having worked in organisations such as the NHS, Higher Education, and in mental health for the last few years, I have gained substantial experience of helping people with a broad range of issues.
I use a treatment model which aims to bring effective change by exploring the roots of your current problems, which seeks not only to remove symptomatic suffering, but also to help you live at your highest capacity- free to love and be loved, to work, create and to feel fully engaged with life.
I believe Counselling not only offers professional support in difficult times, but is also an opportunity to grow, develop and to understand ourselves more fully, leading us to discover an availability of previously hidden potential.
My approach is adaptive and will reflect where you are at each stage of your journey, and allow you to explore the paths that suit you. I offer a space which is confidential and non judgemental- a space which is safe to explore your issues and yourself, towards growth and a deeper potential within.

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.
