Due to the Covid19 Pandemic, I am currently offering therapy either by Zoom or over the telephone. I appreciate that the present situation can be stressful and add to existing problems that you might have been experiencing.
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor (Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, University of Surrey) and am a member of the BACP.
I am an experienced counsellor in anxiety, depression, sexual identity, eating disorders, alcohol and drug dependency.
I see clients once a week from my therapy room in Cheam, Sutton.
Therapy sessions are confidential and are client lead - enabling you to work at your own pace and bring to therapy what you feel you need to talk about.
I can see you for short term therapy (minimum 12 weeks) or for open-ended therapy.
There is an initial assessment for an hour, for me to gain some background information and explore what you are seeking help with.
I appreciate that during tough times not everyone can afford expensive weekly therapy sessions so my fee scale is flexible to reflect this.
If you feel you need to talk, please do not hesitate to contact me.

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.

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).
