Supervision details

I have counselling experience in both the NHS and charity sectors but now work solely in private practice, counselling adult clients and supervising trainee and qualified supervisors. I work face-to-face in Old Malden (KT3 6PW) and online, via Zoom. Concessions are available for trainee counsellors.

I am a naturally empathic and compassionate person and I believe that building strong, collaborative relationships is key to the success of my counselling and supervisory work. Reflective in my approach, I bring maturity, warmth and humour to my work, together with insight gained not only from a rigorous, Masters level training and many years of counselling experience, but also from my many years of personal therapy and a long working history in healthcare, including a spell in nursing.

Since qualifying with an MA in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy in 2013, I have undertaken certification training in Schema Therapy, EMDR and Relational Supervision. I have also taught counselling skills & theory up to level 3, and I regularly supervise level 4 trainee counsellors in a local further education college.

My work has encompassed a broad range of client presentations and difficulties, and I have worked with people from all walks of life, through all stages of life. I am sensitive to issues of difference, I embrace diversity I am inclusive in my approach to life and work.

Counselling supervision helps to ensure that high professional standards are maintained. It gives counselling practitioners the opportunity to reflect in depth about their work with clients, and is also an important aspect of self-care. My aim is to provide a welcoming and non-judgmental environment for my supervisees, where they can feel safe enough to explore and reflect on all aspects of their work with clients. 

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

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.

My counselling room is on the ground floor.
