About me

I welcome people from any background, gender, race, status or culture. 

Offering one to one, professional, confidential, supportive, counselling and psychotherapy. In-person or online. It is my role to support you towards a better understanding of your feelings, emotions and life situations.

To arrange a session please get in touch via email or phone and we can arrange an initial session. 

My training is in psychodynamic counselling, which specialises in how we can be affected by our past, how we humans get along with each other and finding ways to understand and move on from difficult thoughts and feelings such as anxiety, stress and low mood. With the aim of feeling better about yourself.   I’m also trained in working with trauma. Including understanding how the body responds emotionally and physically to stress.

At an initial session, you can ask me any questions, we’ll discuss what has brought you to therapy and I may also ask you some questions. We will then talk about how to proceed. There really is no one size fits all, so we can work out what would be best for you. 

Sessions are 50 minutes and usually take place once a week at the same time.

Research has shown that talking therapies can support the healing process from traumatic life experiences, and childhood trauma that affects adult life.

I will be very supportive in helping you talk about your life. Relationships, culture, gender and sexuality lie at the core of who we are. However, it is often just those very aspects of our lives and culture that cause us difficulties.

Successful therapy can help you become more self-aware and gain a better understanding of yourself. As a result, you may find ways of doing things differently.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a wide range of experience,  working with people from diverse backgrounds and enjoy helping people to find new ways of looking at what is going on for them.  With the aim of finding a better understanding.

There are many valid reasons to have counselling. Emotional difficulties can be hard to cope with, and you may benefit from help. If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, or other emotional difficulties such as coping with a serious illness or struggling with relationship troubles, job loss, the death of a loved one, stress, substance abuse, or other issues.

These are all sound reasons to seek help.

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.

Further information

Please get in touch with any questions...

Counselling and psychotherapy are evidence-based talking therapies that can help with many aspects of your life and mental health.

Therapy does not always need to be just about problems. Counselling & psychotherapy can be a way for you to explore personal growth and understand yourself better. It can also be an opportunity for you to talk about unresolved issues and find a better understanding of yourself.

I look forward to hearing from you.
