About me

I work with what you bring to the counselling session, I won’t ask you to talk about anything that you don’t wish to discuss. I have a positive view of human nature. I believe that we are all doing the best we can, in the circumstances we face. I believe we all have within us what we need to live our best lives, but sometimes we get stuck and need support to find our way forward.  This is where Counselling can help.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental space to explore and understand your feelings and experiences. My hope is that you will find me warm, empathic and authentic. I will ask questions to clarify my understanding of your experience and to help you get in touch with your feelings, even the most uncomfortable ones. Through this, I will help you find your own inner resources to enable you to deal more effectively with whatever is troubling you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Honours Degree in Person Centred Counselling from Middlesex University, London; a Diploma in Person Centred Counselling from the Metanoia Institute, London; and a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Psychology from Macquarie University, Sydney.

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (registration 386514) and adhere to their Ethical Framework. This includes keeping my skills fresh through a programme of continuing professional development and courses.

In addition to my private practice, I work for a London based charity supporting survivors of domestic abuse. I have also worked at a low-cost counselling service supporting clients a range of issues, including depression, anxiety and the search for a better understanding of themselves.

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.
