I am a qualified psychotherapist. I use Relational Transactional Analysis to create a warm, safe space for you to unpack your world, explore what’s happening for you today and those factors from the past which might be disrupting your inner peace and happiness. Together, we can work through difficult feelings of grief, shame, anger, sadness and regret in a confidential and safe environment so you can feel more hopeful, lighter, calmer and more centred.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified psychotherapist with an MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist from Metanoia Institute. I also hold a diploma in psychotherapeutic counselling. I have worked in a range of settings including in-community providing psychiatric support.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)
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.
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.
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
I charge £75 per 50 minute session for individuals, £105 per 75 minute session for couples. I also offer a limited number of low cost spaces.
You may be feeling guilty, selfish, not good enough or even not unwell enough to come to therapy. But everyone deserves to be heard. We all deserve to feel at peace. So either call or email me. Whichever feels easier for you.
