I am a fully qualified professional counsellor and psychotherapist, accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and registered with the BPC, working with clients on a once weekly basis for either short term or open-ended counselling depending on individual needs. My core training is psychodynamic but I also have a basic qualification in CBT.
My rooms are quiet and I aim to provide a peaceful environment where my clients can feel safe and contained in a confidential setting.
I am gradually reintroducing my clients to meeting in person depending on their wishes, the need to keep both them and myself safe and their current individual situation. I am also working online, and on the telephone. This past year has taught us many things and an increased adaptability is significant on the list. I believe it has made counselling and psychotherapy available to more people and that is a very good outcome.

I subscribe to the BACP and the BPC code of ethics and practice.

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.
British Psychoanalytic Council
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.
