I am a registered member and accredited therapist of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I trained as a therapist in the early 2000’s and became a BACP accredited therapist in 2016.
I have been a member of the psychological medicine team at KIMS hospital since it opened in 2014 and have worked in several settings including schools and charities as well as private health care. In addition to my clinic at KIMS I also see clients at the Mind and Body clinic in Tonbridge.
I worked for ten years in London for an organisation for the blind, counselling those living with sight loss; whether through being diagnosed with an eye condition or through accidents or trauma
I have experience in working with those diagnosed with life-changing conditions, clients experiencing depression, anxiety and stress, as well as confidence issues, loss and lifestyle transitions. E.g. separation, stepfamilies and retirement. These transitional periods in our lives can introduce several issues and because they are so common we expect to be able to deal with them when we may often need some support in order to adapt to the changes.

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.
