About me

I have worked as a counsellor in a variety of settings and have experience of a wide variety of issues. My core training is psychodynamic, which means that I believe many of our issues stem from our childhood experiences and relationships, and many of these influences are unconscious. Every individual is different, so the same approach is not suitable for all, and I have training and experience in other approaches, so I tend to work in an integrative way.

In our first session together, we will talk about you and your issues so I can tell whether I am able to offer to help you. You can also decide if you feel able to work with me, because it is important to have a counsellor you are happy with.

Sessions last for 50 minutes and are normally once a week. I offer both short term (usually 6 to 12 sessions) and long term work.

I am a registered and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework. I am also a counselling tutor and trainer.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.

Accredited register membership
