About me

Counselling & psychotherapy with me offers a confidential, non-judgemental space in which to explore confused, unsettled or disturbing feelings. To discover what is behind our experiences and to provide insight and hope, where both are absent.

I will establish a facilitatory space where thoughts & feelings can be safely revealed. I am impartial, attentive, curious & determined to know more about your fears, anxieties and uncertainties. To understand how feelings intertwine with daily life - how we experienced them in the past, offering foresight for the future, in the present.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a place where energy is focused on lines of thought, collaboratively. A place where time is reserved for feelings, to discover how we experience them, how we can understand them and to appreciate the often painful, conflicted conundrums that perhaps trouble you and your relationships.

Doubt and uncertainty will most likely be reflected in our work together but within a safe, reliable & deeply thoughtful space from where your emotional life can be given room to expand & develop.

I work psychodynamically. I focus on relationship patterns, unconscious experience and processes, developmental history and what occurs between the two of us, in the room.

I retain experience and hold particular understanding in these clinical areas:

  • ​Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Personality disorders
  • Trauma
  • Low self-esteem
  • Stress
  • ​Bereavement
  • Sexuality issues
  • Domestic violence
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Childhood sexual abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Relational conflict/codependency

Training, qualifications & experience

I began my training at Birkbeck University of London, qualifying as a psychodynamic therapist at the longest serving counselling training centre - Highgate Counselling Centre (UK. Est.1966). 

I am an active member of a National Suicide/Listening Charity.

​I am also a registered member of the BACP - The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I work within and in reference to their ethical and professional guidelines. In line with BACP membership, I am also committed to my Continuing Professional Development and undertake regular supervision of my work.

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.
