If you're struggling with emotional difficulties, talking to someone who can listen and hear you without judging may be helpful. I have over thirty years' experience of working with individuals and couples who have reached a point of realising that they need support in facing some of the challenges that life brings.
I work with broad range of issues and difficulties, but have particular experience in supporting people in the following areas:
- sexuality/sexual identity
- relationship problems
- study and work-related issues
I work integratively - which means that I draw on a wide range of therapeutic theories and techniques including psychodynamic, cognitive, existential and humanistic. Rather than trying to make you - the client - fit the theory, I believe in working the other way round, ensuring that I am working in a way that you find helpful and supportive.
Contact me for an assessment session where we will think together about the concerns that you are facing at the moment, and about how I may be able to support you in responding to these situations. I offer face-to-face and online sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Doctorate in Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute/Middlesex University.
Other qualifications include:
- MA Counselling (University of Birmingham)
- Certificate in marital and couple therapy (RELATE)
I have worked in a variety of therapeutic settings including universities, with employee assistance programmes, charities and private practice.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
