Our lives can sometimes feel overwhelming. Therapy is a time and a space to be heard, to build awareness, strength and spontaneity.
The conversations between client and therapist are unique and precious. Beyond techniques, tools and training, research shows that a successful therapy tends to be based on a relationship, on trust, collaboration and true listening.
As a psychotherapeutic counsellor, I am inviting you to explore your own story, in the presence of an attentive and reflective fellow traveller.
What happens next?
If you feel the time has come to explore your own self, feel free to get in touch with me.
Our first session will be about finding out whether we both believe can work together. We will try and establish a first sense of what you are hoping to achieve. You will then decide whether you would like to carry on. If so, we will contract for a limited number of sessions, or make our work open ended. We will review progress as we go along.
I welcome you to call or text me on: 07930 141251 or click here to send me an email.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained at the Metanoia Institute in West London. I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and a registered member of one of the UK’s leading professional bodies, BACP. I abide by their code of ethics.
My training is in relational Transactional Analysis (TA). Our approach originates in psychoanalysis and is rooted in a humanist philosophy. I believe in our shared humanity, whatever our histories, perspectives and values. I believe there is profound worth in all of us.
I am used to working with a wide range of emotions, thoughts and behaviours. Some of my clients have gone through traumatic events. At all times, I keep a non-judgemental stance, aiming to support you in your search for meaning, strength and relations.
I have been working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse at OneInFour in South and North London, and with refugees and asylum seekers at the Multi-Ethnic Counselling Service in Waterloo.
I have worked both in English and in French, with clients from diverse countries, ethnicities and cultures.
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.
