About me

Relational Psychotherapist working with individuals and couples

The quality of the relationship between you and your therapist is the cornerstone of successful therapy.  My focus at the outset is to understand what may be causing difficulty for the client and to see if I might be somebody who the client can relate to. This is important in building trust between us. I work with many conditions and concerns, including anxiety, depression, grief, loss, addiction, relationship difficulties, trauma and identity issues.

Whether you are young or old, a couple or an individual, I offer a confidential, support and non-judgemental space in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings. I have a Psychodynamic approach to therapy. I draw upon Transactional Analysis and psychoanalytical ideas, with a particular focus on a relational approach to gently reveal insights and understanding as to why you do what you do and ways in which to move beyond painful and repetitive experiences.  

I am committed to ethical, non-discriminatory practice and welcome individuals and couples of all cultures and sexualities. I abide by the principles and ethics of the UKCP.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

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.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
