About me

I create a non-judgemental and reflective space to help clients explore their difficulties and concerns. Taking the first steps into therapy can feel challenging - particularly at a time when you might be struggling to make sense of difficult thoughts and feelings. Working together to understand the connections between past and current relationships, I support clients in developing a deeper awareness of their recurring emotional patterns and further insight into their internal world. Through insight and empathy, the therapy helps clients to face the emotional challenges in their life.

About Psychodynamic Therapy 
Psychodynamic therapy connects the experiences of earlier relationships to life in the here and now. Understanding the patterns that repeat in your life, we can explore the possibilities of meaningful change and more fulfilled relationships. 

Next Steps
We would start with an initial 50 minute session to give you the chance to see if therapy is suitable for you; the session involves no commitment beyond this first meeting. Initially, we would explore what you wish to get out of therapy and how we would work together.
If you would like to discuss an appointment, or ask any further questions, please email me or leave a voicemail.

Member organisations

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. 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.
