Dip.Psychodynamic Counselling, MBACP Accred

About me

Welcome

I'm a BACP accredited Counsellor/Pscyhotherapist and NCS qualified Clinical Supervisor.

I offer short term counselling and long term psychotherapy to individual adults from all walks of life.

Whether you are seeking to focus on a specific life crisis, or whether you wish to explore other long standing issues, I offer a safe space for you to come and talk about whatever is troubling you.

Training, qualifications & experience

With a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, I am a qualified and experienced therapist and clinical supervisor, and I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and Accredited BACP Registered Independent Counsellor/Psychotherapist.

I trained and worked with Gloucestershire Counselling Service and was a Counsellor with Gloucestershire SHARE Young People's Counselling Service, with young people ages 11-25, and counselling with children in a Special School for children with special educational needs.

I have worked in retail, in admin, in management, in equal opportunities, and in social care.

I have many years experience, since 2002, working with adults from all walks and stages of life.
I am passionate about the work I do, and I know personally the benefits of experiencing a professional therapeutic relationship, and how it can transform the way we think, live and relate to others.

I attend regular workshops, conferences and trainings, consolidating my initial training and experience and keeping updated with the latest research.

Psychodynamic therapists are required to have therapy in training, and accordingly, I have been in therapy over a number of years during training and beyond. This is an important element in the training of a psychodynamic therapist. Only by having worked with and in our own mind processes can we safely and ethically offer to accompany another.

I believe there is no "one size fits all" in therapy. I am interested in psychoanalytic theory and attachment theory, and I believe that along with our inherent nature, we are shaped by our experiences particularly in early childhood.

I work with a variety of people from various backgrounds, cultures and sexual orientations. I've worked with divorce and separation issues, trauma, depression and anxiety, and the difficulties of creative people, artists, performers and musicians, as well as those of high-flying business personnel.

I have experience of counselling staff within local authorities and within the NHS.

Contact begins with a two-way-assessment so that both sides are comfortable about working together. I abide by the Ethical Framework and Code of Conduct of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy BACP.

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.

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.
