As a Psychodynamic Counsellor I listen carefully and empathically to understand what is causing you personal distress. I can help you to address feelings and emotions which are perhaps difficult to talk about or make sense of.
During sessions I work with you to develop self awareness and curiosity about the underlying causes that may be affecting the way you think and feel. Taking time to understand and heal misunderstandings we have about ourselves and others can allow us to progress and achieve more both personally and professionally.
Training, qualifications & experience
As a professional Psychodynamic Counsellor I see myself as a person on their own journey of discovery.
My training as a Psychodynamic Counsellor began 10 years ago and I continue to extend my knowledge and skills through regular CPD events. As well as running my Private Practice I work as a Voluntary Counsellor for a local charity and most recently for the NHS.
The therapeutic relationship is the most important factor in the work we will do together. Whether you choose to commit to long or short term counselling, it is important to feel at ease and understood.
I follow the BACP Ethical Framework for Profession Practice and I receive regular supervision. I am currently working toward full accreditation with the BACP.

In my earlier life I trained as an artist and designer and spent time working within the media industry and in education. I have also worked in community mental health services in Surrey supporting adults using ‘ art as therapy’.
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).
