About me

Are you looking for a professional, confidential counsellor to support you through a difficult period in your life and help you to get back on track?

I am a fully qualified, Accredited, Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor.  I am also a qualified CBT practitioner. I provide short-term or long-term confidential counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and supportive environment. I see clients at my private practice in Balham and at Naval Mair & Associates Osteopathy Wellbeing Practice in SW18. I am within reach of the following South London postcodes; SW11, SW12, SW17, SW18 and SW19. I am also a qualified Supervisor and see students working towards gaining their clinical hours during training and accreditation.

How does an integrative counsellor work?

Integrative counsellors use different techniques to help each client work through their own particular issues.These approaches include Person centred therapy, Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic therapy and Existential therapy. These terms can sound quite complicated but they are all just ways of working to help people through their difficulties. They are explained further on my website www.roscarman.co.uk. I believe that no one therapeutic approach has all the answers and that helpful therapy should be tailored to meet everyone's individual needs. Providing the right support is key to helping clients feel understood, less anxious about starting therapy and moving forward with their lives.

How to get started with counselling

  • Send me an email with a few details about yourself and your concerns
  • Come along for an initial assessment session
  • When we meet I will take some details/history and we see if we can work together
  • We can then agree times and dates going forward for your sessions
  • Sessions are generally weekly and last for 50 minutes

We can all have times when life gets difficult or overwhelming. Counselling can be a helpful and supportive way to understand and overcome things in your life that have been holding you back. Working through some of these challenges with a qualified therapist can enable you to step forwards towards a more positive future.

Some things my clients have said about therapy...

"I’ve gained strength and become more empowered through our sessions.."

"..with her help and support I now feel really able to embrace life in a different and more positive way"

".. I now have an insight into myself that I previously didn’t have and a knowledge of how to cope with the challenges life throws at you"

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
