About me

Hello, I understand that this could be the first time you have thought about contacting a therapist, or maybe you are returning to therapy, but either way it can feel like a big step.

I'm a qualified integrative-relational counsellor, which put simply means that I can tailor different therapeutic approaches to suit your needs.  I provide a non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore what is troubling you.  The relational element of my approach means that the work we do will be collaborative and guided by you to go at your own pace.  We will decide together whether we work in the short or long term.  I work with individual adult clients and couples.

My aim is to provide a supportive environment allowing to to gain deeper understanding of yourself and enabling you to bring about the change you want in your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

My private practice is in East Sheen SW14, which is easily accessed via Mortlake train station and London bus routes 33, 337 & 493

My previous work experience has included working at an NHS GP surgery in Surbiton.  I've worked as an Associate Counsellor at a women's charitable agency and as an Associate Counsellor at a London University.

In addition to Private Practice I am able to see clients through a large health insurance Employee's Assistance Programme.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Further information

Please feel free to come along for an initial assessment session, which is a chance for us to get to know each other and see whether you would like to work with me.

I am able to offer flexibility in how we work together.  I offer online sessions, using Zoom so that you can access counselling without having to leave home.  But it may feel more important than ever to be meeting with someone in person now, so I am back in my counselling room offering face to face sessions.
