Choosing to start therapy can be a daunting prospect, it may take time to find the right person to work with, someone who you feel comfortable with or at least someone you are prepared to share your distress with in confidence.
I offer a non-judgemental space where I hope we can work together so that you can share whatever is on your mind.
I can offer both open-ended and time-limited therapy. You may come with a particular problem you would like to explore using a brief therapy model, or wish to spend more time working through issues which have been with you for a long time, and are holding you back from enjoying life, and feeling at ease with yourself and others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a psychodynamic counsellor but I work with each client in an individual way.
I use an integrative approach which means that I may use ideas from different therapy models to help you reach a better understanding of your self and how you relate others.
How we think about and relate to the past influences our current thinking and behaviour. The aim of counselling is to help us learn how we can move forward and create better ways of coping and ultimately have a happier life.
I follow the BACP Ethical Framework for Professional Practice and I receive regular supervision. I am currently working toward full accreditation with the BACP.

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).

I am currently offering weekly counselling sessions via Zoom or by telephone. Sessions last for 50 minutes.
I can offer both short and longterm counselling.
