I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor with a Higher Professional Diploma in counselling. I am a registered member of the BACP. This means you can check on the register of the largest professional body in the UK for counsellors that I have met their standards of proficiency and ethical practice.
The person centred approach is one of many different approaches to counselling and it is the one that as both a counsellor and client I find fits my personality.
Before I trained in counselling, I worked for many years in the business world as a consultant. I worked for a number of different retail and IT companies around the UK, which gave me the opportunity to get to know people from all walks of life. While I had always been interested in counselling, it was something I put off for a long time until I realised that the most rewarding part of my work was the relationships I was building with people. This experience is part of why I am so committed to offering counselling online as I understand how integral to peoples lives technology is.
I believe that counselling is all about the relationship between the client and the counsellor. As the counsellor, my role is to share the space with you and be with you as you explore what has brought you to counselling.
As well as my private practice, which is aimed at adults aged 18 and over I am a school counsellor and have worked in a number of Secondary School services in South East London. I work face to face near London Bridge and Borough tube stations and online using Skype and other tools.
PS. If you are wondering about the tree logo, for me it represents how we are always growing. Sometimes we get a bit turned and twisted around, but the urge to keep on is within us all.
