About me

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and Qualified Supervisor. I work for a Bromley Counselling Agency as a Group Supervisor and have a Private Practice for long term therapy or short term solution focused therapy for Individuals. In Private Practice I also supervisee Counsellors and Trainee Counsellors. I have previously worked as a Counsellor and Supervisor for a primary care Iapt Service.

I know that sometimes it can be difficult to deal with our life events, we can feel anxious or troubled, fearful of the future with anxieties that are preventing us from feeling happy and able to cope. I offer a space to talk and be listened to, help support you to make the necessary choices and change so that you can be happier and better able to cope in your every day life.

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.
