About me

I work with people who are navigating life’s ups and downs. Perhaps you are managing change or feeling stuck, burnt out or are uncertain about what to do. Maybe you’re in a relationship you wish was different or are wondering why relationships don’t seem to work out for you. You might be struggling with loss, personal or professional, or maybe you are finding things difficult with your family, friends or work colleagues. Perhaps you’re finding that the Covid-19 crisis has changed things for you and you want to explore your thinking about what that means for you and your future. Or it could be you don’t know what you’re feeling but you know something isn’t quite right; you’re numb or burnt out, frazzled and disconnected.

It might be all, some or none of these things but if you know that something isn’t quite right, then having someone to talk to can help. Psychodynamic counselling supports you with understanding difficult feelings, helps you think about where they might have come from, helps you identify who you really are and enables you to come back into alignment if you have been feeling disconnected from your values.

The process isn’t easy but we will work through and understand things together over time and, by doing that, will facilitate and effect positive change for you. Utilising the right approach for your dilemma allows us to think about and address the source of pain, anxiety and burn out.

Given my training, I do work short-term on specific goal-oriented issues, and also offer longer-term therapy where the areas to work on are still unclear and might need further exploration.

My work is driven by curiosity, compassion and integrity. We both show up to the work as whole people, and work collaboratively to build the best approach for you. The material you bring forms the ground, and my skills and experience map the journey. We make that journey together.

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.
