About me

Seeking therapy takes courage and finding the right therapist can be a daunting task.  Perhaps a brief description of who I am, how I work and my beliefs of what effective therapy is, will hopefully be helpful for you in taking this initial step.

I am a fully qualified professional Therapist with over 10 years of experience working with adults on a one to one basis, in various locations, including my private practices in both Winchester and Southampton.  I have experience in working short term but mainly work towards a longer lasting deeper change, working at your own pace, with an open-ended longer-term approach.

I belong to a Professional Body, The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, meaning that you can be reassured about my training and qualifications.  It also means that I have agreed to follow its Ethical Codes and Standards and I undertake continuous training and development.

My work

I am lucky to have benefited from a high quality accredited first training in Transactional Analysis Counselling.  Over the years, through Supervision, Personal Development and additional training, my way of working has taken inspiration mainly from Psychoanalysis, Relational Psychodynamic approaches, Existential Philosophy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.  Paramount to all of these is my belief in the importance of the quality of the Therapeutic Relationship; developing a trusting relationship while being aware of what happens between us is core to effective therapy.

Perhaps you would like to make changes to your life but are unsure of where to begin?  We can work together to help identify patterns and themes of your view of the world and yourself in it.  We can think about how past experiences may have impacted on your ability to cope and function.  With acquiring greater insight, awareness and meaning, we can work towards breaking destructive patterns and gain resources which will help you cope with difficulties and make profound changes to your life and relationships.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Neuroscience for Therapists (P. Afford, London)
  • Existential Freedom – How to be real and find meaning (E. van Deurzen)

As well as my Private Practice, I have experience in working within University settings, Charitable organisations and Rape and Sexual Abuse Centres.

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.
