About me

Choosing a counsellor and psychotherapist is a very personal choice and it is important to find one who you feel comfortable being in a therapeutic relationship with. I really appreciate that it might feel really unnerving coming to counselling for the first time, particularly at a time when you’re not feeling at your strongest. I am aware that it might have been a huge step for you to get to my door and so my hope is that you would find both me and my room warm and welcoming. It is really important to me that you are able to experience me as someone who can provide a warm, respectful and accepting relationship without judgement or criticism.

When counselling, I work using an Integrative approach, which means I can bring different ideas into our work together, giving you a greater choice when trying to work out what’s happened to you and why. I am also able to use creative techniques such as art materials, sand tray and puppets whenever appropriate and only if you feel it's right for you. Sometimes being creative provides the possibility of greater understanding if talking therapy becomes too difficult for whatever reason. And the more you are able to understand, the better chance you have of being able to change and move forward.

I am happy to initially speak on the phone so you can ask any questions and decide whether I am the right person to support you with whatever struggles you might be having right now.

BACP Accreditation

I am an Accredited member of the BACP which means that I have met the stringent training and practice criteria established by this professional body to ensure counsellors are working with professionalism and integrity. An important part of my accreditation is that I commit to continuing professional development (CPD) by way of attending courses and keeping up-to-date with the latest counselling research.

Experience

I have over ten years’ experience in providing confidential, short and longer term one-to-one counselling for adults and adolescents within various settings, including the NHS, Relate, and local counselling charities such as The Counselling Partnership and Off The Record, Twickenham. In addition to my private practice, I currently work at three local secondary schools where I provide counselling for young people aged from 11 to 18 years old.

Fees

Each session costs £50 and I ask for payment by cash or cheque on the day at the start of the session. I also offer some reduced cost sessions for clients who are on a low income or unemployed. Internet banking is possible for regular clients.

I am recognised by private medical insurers AXA PPP, Aviva and VitalityHealth and I am happy to provide invoices if required.

I am also an affiliate with Health Assured Employment Assistance Programme (EAP).

If you need to cancel your session, I ask for a minimum of 24 hours’ notice or a charge for the full fee will be incurred. Sessions can be rescheduled by phone or email, and I would be happy to use Skype if it is not possible to reschedule during the same week.
