About me

I came to psychotherapy initially as a client and for me it was fundamentally life changing. I was able to find clarity in the chaos that my life had become. I believe I am able to offer my clients the same opportunity for change that I was offered.

Having spent nearly 15 years working in various sales and administration roles for global businesses and  within voluntary organisations in south London over the last five years. I am skilled and experienced in engaging with people of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds, and who have encountered a diversity of life events.

At times in my life I have struggled with everyday life problems alongside times of great joy, and times of real difficulty. This enables me to offer my clients true understanding and empathy. I offer my clients a space free of any judgement so that they can explore their feelings in a safe environment.

I feel that my life experiences both here in the UK and those gained whilst living and travelling abroad bring a greater depth of understanding to my work.

I am a member of the BACP and adhere to its ethical framework.

I have studied a Level 5 Diploma in Relational Therapy, this enables me to work with couples as well as individuals for RELATE and in my private practice.

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.
