About me

Psychodynamic psychotherapist working with adults in once weekly psychotherapy.

I have worked in voluntary, clinical and private practice.
I aim to support individuals to overcome barriers that inhibit their emotional growth, such as negative, destructive and compulsive behaviours. Also those who may be experiencing relationship problems, difficulties managing emotional upheaval, anxiety and depression.

The process of psychotherapy can help us understand how symptoms are formed and develop into psychological problems and offers an opportunity to make changes to live a more healthy and happy life.

I have a particular interest in the affect of childhood experience on psychological development and work with an analytic approach to therapy alongside creative models such as the exploration of dreams.

My approach is predominantly Psychodynamic but I am also able to integrate CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Mindfulness which can help diffuse negativity, aggression and turbulent emotions.

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.
