Are you caring for others, but feel you need to care for yourself? Is calming and reassuring others leaving you in turmoil inside? Do you wonder how much longer you can keep giving what you do not have to give?
I am a retired orthopaedic surgeon, lay minister, and fully qualified psychotherapist. I know what it is like!
My approach is person-centred, and I also use the internal family system, which is a model developed by Richard Swartz in America.
If you feel I can help, realising that at present we can only use zoom to get together, please don't hesitate to ask. I will be as flexible as possible with appointments.
Peace and all good

Individual Member BACP
Level 1 IFS
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.
