About


“I am a human being first; Therapist second.” ~ Nina

(Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy & Accredited Professional Member of the National Counselling Society)

I am a BACP & NCS accredited Integrative Counsellor / Psychotherapist offering Counselling & Psychotherapy sessions tailored to suit your needs at my private practice in Wallington, Surrey. I have 18 years post-qualification experience working with a wide variety of clients experiencing multiple and complex difficulties.

I have worked with individuals of different ethnicity, race, gender, colour and ages, (adults, children, couples, families, older clients, student counsellors, teenagers and young adults), in diverse settings such as School, Counselling Centre, Cancer Centre, Universities as well as in Private Practice. I also offer Specialist Mentoring to students in Adult Education. I am particularly interested in working with Clients who have experienced trauma and relational difficulties in their childhood due to their heritage and sexuality.

I offer therapy sessions on a short-term, long-term and single session basis. Sessions are delivered face-to-face, online (telephone & video) and also as a hybrid of both.

Counselling & Psychotherapy:

My working style as a therapist is facilitative. I work collaboratively with all my clients to ensure that they always have both autonomy and choice in deciding the pace, content and depth of our work together. I use an Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy model, which is a combined approach to psychotherapy bringing together different elements of specific therapies. Therapy techniques are predominantly client-led and holistic. They are also tailored to meet individual needs and personal circumstances. Essentially, Integrative Therapists are not only concerned with what works, but why it works – tailoring therapy to their clients and not the client to the therapy.

Clinical Supervision:

I am an Integrative Clinical Supervisor, (Diploma in Integrative Supervision of Individuals & Groups), and offer supervision to Counsellors & Psychotherapists. I offer Supervisees a space for reflection, within contracted boundaries, in one-to-one sessions, which can take place online, face-to-face or as a hybrid of both.

If you are looking for support to get Accredited with the BACP, I can guide you through the entire process.

My previous experience include line managing and supervising a pool of 25 Counsellors and Complementary Therapists at the ‘South East Cancer Help Centre‘ for 7.5 years. I currently Supervise Counsellors & Psychotherapists, (both Trainee and Qualified), in my private practice.

I work using the ‘seven-eyed’ model and my supervision ethos embraces the 4 C’s – Competence ethically, Confidence, Compassion and Creativity. The initial work revolves around strengthening our relationship followed by a collaborative exploration of your personal style to help you evolve and grow into the Counsellor you aspire to be. Our work together will be facilitative allowing you ample room to develop your professional practice, learning and growth.

As an accredited member of the BACP & the NCS, I adhere to both ethical frameworks for good practice. My clinical work is regularly supervised by an experienced BACP & UKCP registered Supervisor.
