My approach

I am a BACP-registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I have been in private practice for the past 6 years.

I work with adults from all different backgrounds and I have experience of working with ethnic and sexual minority groups on short and long-term contracts.

I work using an integrative approach combining the core therapies of person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) tailored to individual needs.

I provide a safe, empathic and non-judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties. I will not tell you what to do, but will guide you to help you make the right choices in your life and to gain greater self-awareness.

I pride myself on my down-to-earth, honest and open approach.

Training and qualifications

I trained at both Lambeth and Morley College for 4 years, gaining:

  • Counselling Skills (CPCAB Level 2)
  • Counselling Studies (CPCAB Level3)
  • Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB Advanced Level 4 Diploma)

I am currently undergoing further training in CBT.

I will also soon be working as a volunteer case worker for SSAFA (the Armed Forces charity), helping ex-forces personnel.

Past experience

Within the NHS I worked with many clients who presented a wide range of issues, some more complex than others.

At Turning Point, I worked with men and women of different ages with drug and alcohol addiction and the very complex and traumatic issues surrounding those addictions.

Professional affiliations

I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) (051305).

The BACP is the UK’s largest professional body for the counselling professions and I work within their code of ethics and guidelines.

Integrity and commitment to duty of care are paramount in my professional values.
