About me

Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, ambivalent, or unhappy at times. As a BACP registered professional counsellor and psychotherapist, I can help you understand and manage difficult times in your life, and take a deeper look into your anxieties and worries.

I currently work as a person centred counsellor and psychotherapist within a public organisation alongside my private practice. 

I have worked with a range of mental health issues and disorders such as; depression, anxiety disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge eating, substance abuse, physical and domestic abuse, sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.

I also have experience in relationship and sex counselling should you wish to attend with a partner.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP registered Adult therapist and Child & Adolescent Psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist.

My qualifications include an MSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy for Children and Adolescents from Birkbeck University of London and a foundation degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Regent’s University of London. I have over six years experience of providing psychodynamic counselling, person-centred counselling and psychotherapy for children, teenagers and adults.

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.
