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)

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.
