I see life as a journey with all its stumbles and frailties and its enormous potential for human growth. “There is nothing stronger than the human spirit. ”However, there are times during life’s journey when confusion and bewilderment, turmoil and upheaval, uncertainty and perplexity can take hold. These are times when counselling can be beneficial and lend a helping hand in order to sort through difficult times. I see myself as a facilitator and my aim is to provide clients with a safe place in order to explore the depths of their difficulties.
I initially trained in Psychodynamic Counselling in the1990’s and worked in both a voluntary and a paid capacity, contracted to Social Services. I have worked closely with unemployed people enabling them to return to the job market and supported students with disabilities.Beyond this, my life’s journey has taken me into the field of teaching and training where I have taught counselling skills for a number of years.
My latter experience has been working in the Health and Social Care sector, training staff that support people with learning disabilities. It has been my greatest challenge and responsibility to ensure that the staff received appropriate training in order to meet the individual and unique needs of service users, enabling them to live their lives in safety and with dignity.
I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and am subject to its Professional Conduct Procedure.

What is Psychodynamic Counselling?
Psychodynamic counselling initially evolved from Sigmund Freud’s theories on the unconscious and uses the therapeutic relationship to gain insight into unconscious relationship patterns that have evolved since childhood. Memories and other evidence of early relationships are used to make sense of current situations and concerns.
