You may be experiencing a range of difficult emotions and feelings which are hard to make sense of. You may be stuck in an endless cycle of dissatisfying relationships, or you may be troubled by painful past experiences and finding it difficult to cope in everyday life.
Through therapy, we can understand and work through your pain. Therapy can help you lead a more fulfilling life by promoting positive change and increased personal growth. I hope to support you in your journey towards this.
It is important to remember that improving one's wellbeing by coming to therapy is a courageous step forward in your life. So, it is essential that you feel comfortable with the therapist you choose. My aim is to provide you with a safe and containing space in order for you to communicate your individual experience. The therapeutic relationship we develop is the most significant aspect of our work together.
My approach is Psychodynamic Therapy.
Psychodynamic Therapy has been developed to work with a wide range of symptoms. The belief is that pain manifests in different ways for everyone, and that there is usually an underlying cause. Making sense of this is important for change to occur. The therapeutic space is an opportunity for you to understand and move forward from difficult experiences.
If you decide to go ahead with therapy, we can have an initial 15 minute phone call free of charge to discuss the process. You can call or email me to book a phone call. If I miss your call, you can leave me a voice message with your contact number and I will return your call.

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.
