About me

I know it is difficult to take the first step and seek professional help. I also know that it can be confusing, even overwhelming, searching to find the right therapist for you. For this, I offer a charge-free 30-minute telephone/online introductory session to discuss what you need help with, to explore if working together could be helpful for you and to answer any further questions you might have about my service and the process of therapy. To arrange a booking, please send me an email.

Please note that I endeavour to respond within 24 hours.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UK trained, experienced psychodynamic therapist based in Sheffield.

I completed 6 years of professional core training (4 in individual therapy at Wessex Counselling and Psychotherapy in Somerset and 2 in couples counselling at Tavistock Relations in London).

I am a registered member of the following professional bodies: The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I also hold the graduate level of registration with the British Psychological Society (BPS).

Member organisations


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.
