I am an Integrative Counsellor, using a specific model of Psychodynamic, Person-Centred and Transpersonal approaches. I draw on these different theories to increase understanding and insight as is relevant to each unique client and their situation. This might invite looking into past experiences as well as considering how well-being is impacted today.
I have a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), assuring my level of training and standards of practice.
I adhere to the BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions, details of which can be found on my 'Resources' page. Clients can expect our therapeutic relationship to be safe, non-judgemental and strictly confidential.
As well as a private counselling practice, I see clients through NHS referral in Hammersmith and Fulham.
I work for The Medaille Trust, who provide safe-housing, advocacy, and support for survivors of human trafficking and modern day slavery.
Over the last 10 years, a specific area of interest has been my work with vulnerable women. Often survivors of childhood abuse; domestic abuse and violence; modern day slavery; sexual abuse; addiction; domestic or migrant destitution, I have found it a huge privilege to support them as they face their difficulties and take new steps forward.
Prior to working as a counsellor, I obtained a BA(Hons) degree at university and have worked in the commercial and charity sectors for over 20 years.
