I hope that giving you some information about how and where I work will help you make a decision to contact me regarding therapy.
I have been working as a counsellor/psychotherapist for over 12 years, seeing people for therapy and supervision. During that time my experience has been varied working in different settings including GP practice, Further and Higher Education. My private practice is based at my home where I have a seperate annexe from which I work.
My training continues as I continue to learn, my approach is grounded in Jungian psychoanalytical theory. I have a Bachelor in philosophy of counselling and have a certificate in supervision. I am also a senior accredited counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
People start therapy/counselling for all sorts of different reasons. Thoughts and feelings can often get jumbled and it becomes hard to be clear about our experiences. Relationships can become fraught and difficult. How we feel affects how we are with ourselves and others and can sometimes lead to relationship difficulties. I see people individually, and see couples.
I aim to provide a safe and reflective space to think about whatever has brought you to therapy. This can often be a very illuminating experience where you can begin to understand yourself more And help you to make choices about your way forward.

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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
