Sometimes life is confusing, painful and problematic and we are troubled, distressed and not at peace with our lives or, ourselves. I fully believe that counselling is a setting in which we are able to speak freely and not feel judged; a place where we are met with empathy and understanding. I truly believe a setting such as this provides the basis from which healing can begin. It is absolutely my belief that the answers to our questions lie within us and we just need some assistance in navigating to those answers. Whatever it is you are seeking help with, I would love to work with you to find your answers, clarity and peace.
By listening to you and exploring your thoughts and feelings with you, you will begin to make sense of yourself, your situation and how you're thinking and feeling. To be heard unconditionally gives us the space to process what is happening for us. The counselling space is your space to explore yourself in a safe and supported way and reach solution.
I am fully qualified and experienced and I work out of three locations: Ealing, Iver, and Chalfont St Peter.
I offer a free 20 minute telephone session whereby you can talk about what it is you are seeking counselling for and whether I sound like the right person for you. It is then entirely your choice as to whether you make an appointment for a full session where we can talk more about your needs, goals and expectations for what you want to get out of your counselling sessions. Starting a counselling journey can be daunting I know but I aim to make it as easy and comfortable as I can.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Metanoia Institute and qualified with a BSc (Hons) Degree in Humanistic Counselling.
Since May 2018 I have been working with a diverse range of clients with varying presenting issues that have brought them into therapy.
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.
