As a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I abide by the BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. My work is regularly supervised and I am fully insured.
As well as my private practice, I have volunteered as a counsellor at the Tower Hamlets Community Alcohol Team, supporting clients struggling with alcohol and substance addictions. Since 2012, I have worked as a counsellor and administrator for Catch 22 Young People’s Health in Wandsworth, providing community and school-based counselling for young people with drugs/alcohol and emotional problems.
Before counselling I worked in the aviation industry, both in consultancy and publishing roles. During this time I learnt valuable lessons about handling workplace relationships, stress, deadlines and communication. With the perspective and insight gained since studying and practising counselling, I now see how I could have handled these experiences more productively. Personal and professional insights, increased self-knowledge and self-awareness are some of the benefits that can be gained from counselling.
I hold the following professional qualifications:
BA (Hons) Counselling (BACP accredited)
Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Skills and Theory (CPCAB* accredited)
Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (CPCAB accredited)
Certificate in Counselling Studies (CPCAB accredited)
Certificate in Counselling Skills (CPCAB accredited)
