About me

I am a fully qualified Person Centred therapist and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I have trained in both the person centred and psychodynamic approaches and have subsequently learnt to integrate a number of different ideas to meet the varying needs of the people I work with.  My professional experience and qualifications allow you to know that I have the relevant training and rigour to do the work but humans are profoundly unique and job titles are not. As Jung said: ‘Learn your theories as well as you can, but put them away when you touch the miracle of the living soul." [Carl G. Jung, Contributions to Analytical Psychology. (1928)

I believe that each person I work with knows better than I do where it hurts. My work is in helping them to identify that hurt and learn to understand it.

Although I list below some of my areas of experience, it may be useful to know that evidence consistently points to the 'click' between client and therapist as being more important in meeting aims than finding a therapist who has worked with a particular issue before.

  • Abuse
  • Bullying
  • Relationships
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Addiction
  • Loss/Bereavement
  • Illness
  • Work-related issues
  • Stress
  • Fertility
  • Trauma
  • Self-esteem issues

Having been in long term counselling and psychotherapy myself, I know how important it is to find a therapist you can trust and feel safe enough to work with. If you would like to find out more about me or my practice, send me an email and we can arrange a time for a free 30 minute telephone consultation.

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.
