About me

I am a psychotherapist offering individual therapy sessions for adults who want a confidential space to talk about whatever difficulties they face.

All sessions are 50 minutes long and usually weekly. We can work long term, short term or for a fixed number of sessions depending on your needs. I work via video or telephone as well as face to face.

I am currently not working face to face in line with Covid safety measures.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained for four years at the Metanoia Institute and have a Postgraduate Diploma in Transactional Analysis Studies from Middlesex University.

I have over eight years of experience working in the charity sector as a psychotherapist seeing a diverse range of clients with a variety of difficulties. I was the founding Director of Male Survivors Berkshire CIC providing therapy for male survivors of trauma and abuse.

Prior to training as a psychotherapist I spent almost four years as a Samaritans Listening Volunteer where I supported callers in emotional distress.

I also work using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders.

I am a member of the BACP and as such adhere to their code of ethics and standards.

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.
