About me

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile.

You've probably found yourself thinking about counselling for many reasons. Talking to a professional can be a useful way to help you to gain a better understanding of your life and where you are.  Whether you need support talking about worries or help with understanding patterns of unhelpful behaviours, counselling can help you better understand the root of difficult emotions, thoughts and feelings.  Taking control of our needs and making changes to our lives can be a challenging hurdle but, it can also be immensely empowering and rewarding. The counselling relationship is formed around respect and trust for the client's growth and change and I hope to support you on this journey.

I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor with a particular interest in Trauma and Psychosomatic Illness and the impact of both on our psychological and physical health. I use a blend of theories incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) where necessary.  I have many years of experience supporting clients facing a broad range of issues from emotional and behavioural, adoption, eating disorders, bereavement and loss, cancer support, sexual identity, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, abuse (physical, emotional and sexual) and addictions.

Alongside working in private practice, I am a School based and Lead Delivery Counsellor for local services in a Targeted Early Intervention and Prevention Team in West London supporting adolescents to Adults.

I have regular clinical supervision to support all client work.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
