About me

Hello, I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor working UK wide via online platforms. 

I aim to create and offer you a safe and supportive space where we can work together, a place where you feel safe and free to explore your emotions, your experiences and the difficulties which have led to seeking counselling.

Sometimes it can feel as if life is too challenging, and too difficult to manage alone. There are times when feeling sad or fed up can take hold and foster a new and much deeper meaning, with anxious feelings and depressive thoughts overshadowing everything. There are many different reasons or triggers for these unwanted and seemingly unhelpful thoughts and feelings. Everyone is different, we all react to situations in our own unique way.  Your reasons and your story is special and I will endeavour to sit alongside you as we work together to explore your unique experience.

Together we can work towards understanding your past experiences, how this effects you now, and equip you with the 'tools' to create new ways of relating to yourself and to others. Helping you find your solutions and your answers. This will strengthen your self esteem to bring about, a noticeable and lasting change.

I have particular interests in the areas of relational difficulties, relationship issues, early development, incubation, separation anxiety, male mental health and childlessness not by choice. I also work in areas relating to family issues, separation and divorce, generalised anxiety and depression. This list is not exhaustive or exclusive.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
