About me

Individuals and Couples since 1996 have been enabled to cope better with their feelings of anxiety,  also bullying, depression, divorce, fidelity, gambling, incestuous desire, infidelity, promiscuity, narcissism.     Also addictions, compulsions, quick to anger, chronic fatigue, delusions, excessive-worrying, exhibitionism, obsessive-compulsive, sexual addiction, your own personal sexuality, paedophilia, internet pornography.

Committed to a BACP Code of Ethics: I am dedicated to social diversity without discrimination. Being sensitive to issues of body image, psychosomatic, gender, ethnicity, colour, culture, lifestyle, beliefs, sexual orientation, homosexual, biracial, bi-sexual, questioning, lesbian, heterosexual, transgender, age and disability.

Through Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (Talking Therapy), Couples and Individuals are assisted to understand themselves better. Also learn to identify their own 'trigger points', regarding issues of depression, anxiety, and anger.

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

Conversation focuses on helping you understand your involvement in work and family relationships and offers you the opportunity to transform your perspective in these relationships.

By talking about your feelings of being abandoned, abused, adopted, anxious, bullied, depressed, your parent's divorce, your divorce or, loss, rejected, separated, stressed, suicidal, or concerning low self-esteem or lack of confidence, the Individual or Couple 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 Abuse, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, questioning sexuality, falling in love with the right person, engaged to be married, sexual intercourse, pregnancy, IVF, conception, miscarriage, abortion, separation, infidelity, divorce.

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.
