About me

Hi, I am a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor based in Leicester.

At times life can be hard to cope with and understanding our thoughts, emotions and actions can feel over whelming and all consuming. I offer a private, safe and confidential space to talk, explore and understand your concerns, issues or difficulties and previous life experiences. Life at times can feel rather heavy and embarking on a therapeutic journey together we can help lighten the load.

Working together on your journey to help you understand your past experiences, how these experiences can shape the way we feel and act, how this affects you now. Being able to reflect and start to recognise our own emotions is the building foundation for emotional, mental and physical resilience.

It can be hard making the first step and I offer a free initial chat prior to any assessment to try and ease the process for you.

Member organisations

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
