I provide a warm and sensitive counselling service at several locations around the Warlingham, Oxted and Sanderstead areas. I am a BACP qualified counsellor and I use an integrative style of therapy combining CBT, person-centered and psychodynamic which allows me to adapt my approach depending on the needs of my clients.
I offer counselling from age 14+ and have worked as an adolescent counsellor and psychotherapist for over 7 years. I am a qualified and accredited IPT-A practitioner. IPT-A (interpersonal psychotherapy training for adolescents) is an evidence based, effective and active intervention therapy for adolescents with depression.
I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, OCD, bereavement, relationship difficulties, anger, bullying and low self esteem.
I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), and adhere to their Professional Code of Conduct and Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
The initial assessment session lasts for 50 minutes and gives us the opportunity to meet each other, find out what it is you would like from counselling and decide if you would like to work with me. There is no obligation to continue after the initial assessment.
