We all need a helping hand sometimes. You may be in the midst of change, coping with loss or struggling with relationships. You may be stuck, confused or overwhelmed and find it incredibly difficult to describe how you feel and yet have a general sense that something is missing or feels not quite right. You may just want a space to be able to talk freely and tell your story.
Going to a counsellor may seem like a big step, especially if things are troubling and confusing. If you are not sure whether therapy is right for you, or if finding the right counsellor seems bewildering, we can arrange a call to discuss your concerns. This session would not involve any obligation to return.
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and trained at The Minster Centre in London, one of the most prestigious therapy colleges. I am registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Working integratively means that I bring together many theories, techniques and perspectives as a way to respond to each unique person. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer you the opportunity to explore your situation and consider what changes, if any, you may want to achieve.
I offer a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space for you to explore any issues or concerns that you have which may be impacting on your life, your relationships and/or your emotional well-being. My aim is to support you in how you are feeling, in either short term (6-20 weeks), or longer term counselling.
I offer counselling face to face and via Zoom.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from The Minster Centre, North London. I have been counselling at Mind in Croydon for 3 years.
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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
