About me

Sometimes life gets really hard and painful. Perhaps you feel anxious, down or depressed and you can't work out why. Maybe you do know why, but you're unable to speak about the reasons with anyone. The pace of modern life or past experiences can make you feel you have to try and deal with your difficulties by yourself, sweeping them under the carpet or putting on a brave face. Perhaps it seems that if you just keep going on as you are, then one day you’ll wake up and your problems will have disappeared - but they don’t. Therefore you've decided to try something new, to reach out and ask for some help. Therapy is a great way to figure out what’s going on and what you might need to do to feel better. 

I offer a respectful, non-judgmental and confidential space to talk about your problems and feelings and help you understand yourself better. Often there are unconscious aspects of your emotional life causing distress, that can be eased by bringing them into awareness. To achieve this I will guide you in exploring your past, examining the present and considering your future - your goals and your potential.

My approach is warm and sincere so you can feel safe to explore your difficulties, and at a pace that's right for you. Sometimes I’ll be more candid and direct to help you get further below the surface and make sense of things that may be holding you back - but I will always be on your side.

As well as talking about your feelings and struggles, there are other techniques I use which are effective at helping you understand your problems better, such as: working with images, guided meditation and mindfulness.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, with a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling, from the Psychosynthesis Trust, in London. Psychosynthesis is an integrative style of therapy, meaning I can utilise a range of recognised disciplines to better assist you and your problems.

A key principle of Psychosynthesis suggests that the symptoms of our problems can indicate a deeper meaning or potential trying to emerge in our lives. Our work together will try to discover what that might be. To achieve this I offer a focused approach for a specific issue in short-term work or we can go into more depth for work in the longer term.

My training is fully accredited by BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), adhering to their Ethical Framework and therefore I am a Registered Member, fully insured and in monthly supervision.

Member organisations

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
