About me

Sometimes life feels difficult, complicated, uncertain or stressful. It might be because of our current family or job situation, too much to balance too many demands, or feeling of the need for making changes from where we are to where we want to be.

I am a Psychologist and Counsellor with more than 25 years experience. Through the years I have developed a strong belief in that it is a mix of the client's story and their current situation that determine my approach, and not a special modality.

I am Psycho-dynamic trained, but I offer different kinds of Counselling depending on the reason you seek support.

Solution focused Short-term work for up to 12 sessions, to help clients to find strategies to work through and manage current difficulties, that might be personal or work-related.

Open-ended long-term work to gain a better understanding of the past, and how it has shaped our story and who we are in relationships, and within us self.

Furthermore I offer Psychological first Aid, to support you in the here-and-now in a crisis or after a traumatic event.

Member organisations

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
