About me

I am a qualified Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience of working with a wide range of emotional issues including anxiety, addiction, bereavement, depression and relational difficulties.

I offer short/medium-term counselling sessions that focus on current unresolved or recent painful life events, which can be explored and talked through in a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental space. I also offer open-ended therapy working more from a psychodynamic perspective, recognizing that ongoing current problems and difficulties in the present can often be linked to earlier experiences.

Both short and medium term sessions as well as open-ended psychotherapy can be arranged according to your individual wishes and needs at the first consultation. This initial consultation will be an opportunity to meet and talk about the issues that you are seeking help with and look into how therapy may help you. There is no obligation on you to continue with therapy after this initial meeting.

Member organisations

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.
