I am an experienced UKCP/BPC accredited therapeutic counsellor and Jungian analyst with over eighteen years experience, working with a range of people on a weekly, and if necessary, more intensive basis. I believe the counselling relationship is a lively partnership which offers people an opportunity to safely explore their difficulties and their aspirations. I offer an initial consultation so that we can explore together what type of help you may be looking for - whether that be short-term, focused, or more long-term intensive therapy. I can also recommend other colleagues or services if it would be helpful.
I also offer 1-1 supervision for psychodynamic/integrative counsellors/psychoanalytic psychotherapists

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
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Counselling is an investment and is not a quick fix solution - however it can be immensely rewarding. I offer an initial consultation so that together we can explore the possibilities.
PS: Always make sure any counsellor you contact is accredited!
