I can offer traditional Psychodynamic Therapy and CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). Both approaches are talking therapies, but with a different emphasis. The level of CBT provided matches the requirements of therapy offered in the NHS (National Health Service). We will agree on the approach depending on your personal preferences and needs, which can also be integrative by working across models during therapy.
I am specialised in offering therapy sessions via video call and telephone.Therapy sessions usually take place weekly and can range from as little as 6 sessions. The exact length of therapy depends on your individual situation and your presenting challenges, which we will discuss in an initial assessment (1 -2 sessions). The assessment will allow us to get to know each other, look at your expectations regards therapy, answer any questions you may have and agree on the most suitable approach for you. Throughout therapy we will review the progress together and will adjust the length and style of therapy if required.
I have a holistic view of therapy and the human psyche. This means that your spiritual views, religious beliefs and other world views will be taken into consideration as they are forming a part of your self as much as your thoughts and feelings. Therefore, I will also offer you alternative ways of making sense of your self and your challenges you are facing.
I know that choosing the right therapist can be sometimes a challenging task. If you any questions please feel free to contact me.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Flexible including evenings & weekend
It is important to be committed towards therapy and to adhere to weekly/fortnightly sessions. If necessary I can offer greater flexibility in rearranging weekly appointments to suit your individual needs as the therapy work is conducted via video call and telephone. However, there is still a 48 hours cancellation policy for all therapy work.
