About me

I trained as a Psychodynamic Counsellor at the University of Cambridge. I am currently working in the NHS through GP referrals and in private practice with clients presenting a wide range of issues.

In my private practice I offer long and short term appointments for Bury St Edmunds and surrounding areas.

I specialise in relationships, anger management and my other experiences include anxiety, stress, trauma, self esteem, depression, bereavement, loss, eating disorders and panic attacks.

I am a registered accredited member with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from the University of Cambridge.

The Psychodynamic approach involves exploring patterns of behaviour that have been developed as a result of past experiences, often from childhood. Through gaining an understanding of these patterns, and the defences we have constructed, we can begin to grow emotionally, developing more fulfilling relationships and a greater sense of mental wellbeing.

in addition to the Psychodynamic approach, I also employ techniques from other approaches such as CBT and Person Centred therapies.

In addition I have qualified in Counselling for Depression using a Person Centred/Emotion Focused at Nottingham University.

I am a warm, positive counsellor committed to helping clients find the right pathway towards reaching their full potential in life. I believe that by understanding issues faced in life we can ultimately move forward with renewed and enriched perspectives

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 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.
