I am a qualified integrative counsellor which means I draw upon a range of different theoretical perspectives to best suit your needs. My aim is to provide a safe, empathic, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to talk openly and freely about whatever has brought you to counselling. Through establishing a warm, collaborative therapeutic relationship, I can support you to gain a better understanding of the things that are on your mind and the difficulties you are facing. This can enable you to find different ways of looking at and addressing issues.
Situated a five-minute walk from Blackheath village, my practice premises are discreet, comfortable and easily accessible by public transport. There is also ample street parking available.
It is very important to find a counsellor that you feel you can work with and I offer an initial session at a lower cost of £20 without commitment to further sessions.
To find out more about how I might be able to help you, or if you would like to book an initial session, please do get in touch.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
