Life can be difficult sometimes, you may feel stuck in a rut, you might be feeling depressed, sad, anxious, fearful, angry, confused or might not even know how you are feeling.
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist which means I provide a confidential space in which to talk and explore your feelings and thoughts as a way to gain support, insight and understanding into yourself, your relationships and life. At times we may go back into the past to help you understand how your past may still be affecting you now. Other times we may talk about issues which are affecting you now.
My experience includes working with relational issues, problems of depression and anxiety as well as issues regarding identity, culture, gender, race and sexuality.
Therapy can help you feel less troubled and burdened by your difficulties. It can support you in reconnecting and rediscovering who you are and help you feel better equipped to deal with the ups and downs that inevitably occur in life.
I am happy to talk to you on the phone as a first step or if you prefer you can email me, so please contact me to discuss any concerns you may have. I offer individual, face-to-face sessions as well as telephone and last 50 min.

I hold a Diploma in Counselling and have had further training in issues of domestic violence and survivors of sexual abuse as well as in-depth training with issues of racism, race and culture.
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.

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).
