About me

During Psychodynamic Psychotherapy Counselling couples and individuals are assisted to understand themselves better together with their 'trigger points'.

I encourage you to talk about your personal experiences, including the present day and your childhood, in complete confidence. Talking about and exploring your relationships, and the character you find yourself in at home and at work.

Conversation is focused on helping you understand your involvement in family and work relationships and offers you the opportunity to transform your part in these relationships.

Since 1996 I have been helping Couples and Individuals to cope with anxiety, bullying, depression, incest, addictions, anger, chronic fatigue or FM, obsessive-compulsive, paranoia, worries, emotions, sexuality, paedophilia, internet pornography.

By talking about your feelings, perhaps of being abandoned, abused, adopted, anxious, bullied, depressed, divorced, loss, separated, stressed, suicidal, or concerning lack of confidence or low self-esteem, the couple or individual can become transformed from feeling overwhelmed, to becoming more empowered and assertive.

This approach offers an objective, non-judgemental understanding to life experiences, such as Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, questioning sexuality and identity, falling in love, engaged to be married, sexual intercourse, pregnancy, IVF, conception, miscarriage, abortion, separation, divorce.

Committed to a BACP Code of Ethics: I am dedicated to social diversity without discrimination, which is sensitive to issues of body image, psychosomatic, gender, ethnicity, colour, culture, lifestyle, beliefs, sexual orientation, homosexuality, biracial, bi-sexuality, questioning, lesbianism, heterosexuality, transgender, age and disability.

BACP

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.
