About me

Counselling & psychotherapy offers a confidential, non judgemental space in which to explore confused, unsettled or disturbing feelings.

Therapy establishes a facilitatory space where one can reveal thoughts & feelings, in the company of someone else.

Someone who is impartial, attentive & curious to know more about fears, anxieties and uncertainties. To understand how feelings intertwine with daily life. How we experienced them in the past, offering insight 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 at the longest serving counselling training centre - Highgate Counselling Centre (UK. Est.1966) - as a Psychodynamic Practitioner.

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

​I am 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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
