About me

I am a fully qualified/registered psychotherapeutic counsellor who integrates the psychodynamic theories of Carl Gustav Jung into my practice. I have worked with many clients with a wide range of difficulties, both in private practice and within public organisations. I offer a safe confidential space for persons who are experiencing psychological difficulties.

Life throws up many obstacles that prevent us from living the happy/creative life we would like.

When we come up against an impasse, or traumatic event on life’s journey, it can leave us feeling anxious, depressed, angry or hopeless. At the root of much so called mental illness are emotional and psychological factors such as traumatic childhood experiences and emotional conflict.

Counselling can offer the chance to express these traumatic experiences and work through the difficulties in a creative way in order to help you move forward in life. I will listen empathically to understand what it’s like to walk in your shoes, in order to help you find the solutions to your problems.

At the heart of my practice is the therapeutic relationship formed between myself and the client, a relationship built on trust, understanding and an unconditional positive regard for your experiences and difficulties free of judgement. I offer short- or longer-term work usually once weekly, this can be more frequent if required. Sessions are conducted face to face or remotely, at a time that is convenient for you.

I also work with dreams, art and sound therapies, which can be very useful in understanding what we find difficult to express with words alone.
I work within the ethical framework as set out by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. (BACP)

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.
