About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.

I offer face to face for individuals in London bridge as well as on the telephone and online sessions via zoom, which will be conducted from the safety of your own home.

The service I offer is open-ended therapy and realise that one size does not fit all, so will tailor my approach to each individual client.

I offer a free 30-minute initial session which will help you to decide if she is the counsellor that will be able to help you, working on the emphasis that the relationship between client and counsellor is the most important one.

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.

Further information

Have you ever felt like you do not belong?

Have you felt like you are from a different planet, compared to your family and friends? Nobody could possibly understand how you feel or even understand the massive range of emotions you experience on a day to day basis?

Dealing with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, and stress is very isolating. You constantly feel alone and overwhelmed.

Counselling can help.

Taking the first step in asking for help is one of the hardest things a person must do.

Having been a client myself I understand how difficult it is to explain what you are feeling inside your own head without feeling like you are being judged. Having to say these feelings out loud is even harder. That is why I am here to support you thought your journey. I want to help you to not only understand what patterns are playing out in your unconsciousness but also to discover who you really are. Together we can deal with the issues that are holding you back from being you.

I work mainly within the Psychodynamic modality, the emphasis of this therapy is that early experiences are seen as important in shaping the way the mind works.  With Psychodynamic counselling, the counsellor will help the client to explore his or her problems in a way they make references to the past, in terms that the potential "unconscious" conflicts or issues that are relevant to what we are experiencing today.

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.
