About Me

I am an integrative counsellor, using the most appropriate methods for the individual and the problems being faced.  I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I abide by their code of ethics.  I am also accredited by the Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Singapore) as a Master Practitioner and am a member of the Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (ACAMH).  My qualifications are:

In keeping with the requirements of the BACP, I attend regular conferences and workshops to enhance and update my skills.  I have a special interest in young people (16 to 25) and have focused much of my professional development on areas that are relevant to this age group.
