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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
