About me

Qualified for over 30 years, I work in private practice and members of the public come to me for help. I see couples and individuals. Practitioners in the counselling and psychotherapy profession also come for therapy or clinical supervision.

I am a Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist with training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Psychodynamic Counselling and Couples Counselling. I was Consultant to the Counselling Programme at the University of Leicester for six years where I taught and managed the programme up to Diploma level. I have had responsibility for psychological assessments in England, Scotland and Wales for a major organisation, a part-time position I held for twelve years.

For help with major underlying changes, I offer intensive psychotherapy: two or three times a week for several years. My passion is to help people to become the person they really are. Alternatively I can offer a short-term focussed series of sessions which can be helpful for a specific problem or for 'unsticking' a 'stuck' situation. There are, of course, various positions between these two ends of the spectrum so if you are not sure what is right for you, then this is something we can work out together.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.
