I am a qualified person-centred counsellor with a diploma and BA Honours in Person-Centred Counselling from the Metanoia Institute and University of Middlesex. I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
Outside of private practice, I have worked in the following counselling agencies:
The Wimbledon Guild
West London Action for Children
Balham Community Counselling Services
I have worked with a range of issues and have particular experience of the following:
Abuse (childhood abuse, domestic abuse, bullying)
Bereavement and loss
Low self-esteem and self-worth
Family, parenting and co-parenting issues.
I also have experience of facilitating therapy groups and support groups with a therapeutic component. I have co-facilitated training with the Wimbledon Guild and Into The Light, a charity supporting survivors of sexual abuse.
I seek to hold an attitude of openness and respect towards my clients and I value and enjoy working with difference. I work to the highest professional and ethical standards, integrating the principles of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework into my practice, attending regular clinical supervision and giving ongoing priority to my own personal and professional development.
