BPC Registered and BACP Accredited Counsellor

About me

As a therapist, I aim to provide a safe, confidential and supportive space in which a trusting relationship can evolve. This is in order to enable my clients to think about the difficult issues that have brought them to therapy. Issues may include painful feelings, disturbing thoughts, recurrent patterns of behaviour and difficult relationships. They may have been caused by recent events or they may be anchored in the past. Either way, I use a psychodynamic approach to therapy. This  means exploring attachment patterns as well as becoming aware of the emotional impact that past events and relationships may have in the present. I firmly believe that developing self-awareness and insight is the first step towards long lasting change. Wherever necessary, I can also integrate this approach with simple CBT techniques.

I am a BACP Accredited (2004) and BPC Registered (2011) psychodynamic psychotherapist.

I work with adults and young people (16 +) in private practice, with EAPs and in educational settings. I am also a registered therapist with BUPA.

About your Counselling Sessions

I offer an initial consultation which takes place over two consecutive weekly sessions.

The initial consultation is an opportunity to explore the issues affecting you in order to decide whether or not psycodynamic psychotherapy is the most suitable approach for you. It is also a chance to experience the way I work and see whether or not you feel comfortable working with me.

If we agree to work together, before we start regular counselling, we will agree the length of your therapy and we will confirm the time and day of your sessions.    

Therapy can be long term, open ended or short term (6 to 12 sessions.)

Sessions are 50 minutes long and take place once weekly, except during holiday breaks.

I offer therapy in English and Spanish.

Issues I deal with                                                                                                                                                                                                          I work with general mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, OCD and self-harm, as well as other issues brought about by life circumstances such as bereavement and loss, separation or divorce, family or relationships.

In my role as EAP counsellor, I help clients overcome issues in the workplace such as stress or performance anxiety; I support them also when dealing with structural changes or difficult working relationships.

As a student counsellor, I support young people struggling with a variety of issues from exam anxiety to relationship problems to difficulties with transitions.  I have a good understanding of the pressures that students and teachers face nowadays as well as of the complexities of the education system. I have a special interest in supporting adults as well as young people struggling with learning difficulties such as dyslexia or dyspraxia as well as those in the AS.

British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure.

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.
