I am a qualified psychodynamic and relationship counsellor with over 20 years experience, which includes counselling in Universities, Camden Women&Health, Relate and my own private practice.
I have a particular interest in helping people with relationship difficulties, family problems, adoption issues, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, low self esteem, identity, difficulties at work, OCD, ritualistic and compulsive behaviour patterns, anger management, self harm, sexual abuse, trauma and bereavement.
I offer counselling to individuals and couples either via video call or from comfortable counselling rooms in Oakham. I understand that it can feel difficult to seek help and I hope to make your appointments feel safe and comfortable and work at a pace that suits you.
I work in a relational way, which means we work together on building a therapeutic relationship where warmth and trust can develop. This relationship creates a secure environment from which to talk about and explore complex and painful thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
It is important that there is a good fit between you and your counsellor for a helpful and productive therapeutic relationship to develop, so I am very happy to talk with you over the phone about my experience and the way I work, with no charge and no obligation.
As a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP I adhere to the Associations Code of Ethics, have regular supervision and participate in ongoing professional development.
Training, qualifications & experience
BSc Psychology Middlesex University
MSc Psychodynamic Counselling at London University, accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
L5 Diploma in Relationship Counselling
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
