About me

You may be reading this as you’re finding things in life difficult at the moment. You may feel as though you’re struggling with thoughts or certain circumstances, or maybe you can’t pin point what you’re going through; you just know you need some support.

I am a fully qualified BACP Counsellor. I am able to offer you a safe and non judgmental space to explore what is happening for you, in order to understand why you’re feeling the way you are. I personalise my work with you to provide tools to support you to work through the difficulties you are experiencing.

For many years I have supported young people and adults with their emotional wellbeing; delivering counselling and psychotherapy in educational settings, schools, colleges, GP surgeries, and community counselling services in London, Surrey, Hampshire and Dorset. I also provide online counselling and work with clients across the UK.

Member organisations

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.
