Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist BACP Accred BPC regd

About me

I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist practising in Milton Keynes for 20 years. I offer both-short term and open ended psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Psychotherapy varies with time and frequency. A long therapy can be stabilising and offer depth and emotional intimacy. But sometimes, short term work  is more suitable.

My trainings (Oxford and London) have given me a classical psychological understanding of the causes of anxiety, depression and phobia and the effects of absence and loss. I can help with anxiety, depression, insomnia, stress, anger management, bereavement and loss. Issues such as paranoia and agrophobia, relationship difficulties, harassment and abuse in the workplace or personal, and its long term effects on the mind, performance anxiety, loss of motivation. In our first session we will discuss what brings you to therapy at this time in your life, your expectations from therapy and practical issues such as time. We will explore what we can do in the short or/and long term and if you want to continue, we will organise further sessions.

Initial Session

An initial session will help you to get an idea of what it would be like to work with me.

In your initial session we will discuss:

1. Your issue and explore underlying trauma and inner conflicts

2. Whether these issues can benefit from psychoanalytic psychotherapy

3. My terms and conditions, which are in line with how psychoanalytic therapy is practised in the UK

4. A time frame and finance

Four or six sessions can stand alone, are therapeutic and generally help people to feel much better. We will do a review before taking it further.

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.


British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.
