About me

I am a qualified, experienced psychotherapist offering counselling/psychotherapy sessions in a reliable, confidential and non judgemental setting.

Counselling and psychotherapy gives you a regular time to talk and think about the feelings you have about yourself and your relationships with other people. From this can emerge a better understanding of issues that are troubling you by thinking about what’s happening in your life at the moment as well as experiences of the past and possible links between then and now.

Both counselling and psychotherapy involve having conversations with a listener who is trained to help you make sense of things that may be causing you difficulty or distress. From this can emerge a better understanding of the issues that trouble you, as well as possible ways forward.

Opening up about the things that are troubling you can feel daunting. I offer a confidential, reliable non-judgemental and impartial space for you to think about and understand these troubles at a pace that suits you.

I offer both open-ended and shorter term more focused engagements and would discuss with you at an initial meeting which approach might be best based on what you were hoping to achieve from attending.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapist in London qualifying with both professional qualifications and an MA in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice.

A member of the UKCP and FPC I abide by robust codes of ethics and have experience of working with varied client groups looking for support with a wide range of difficulties.

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.
