About me

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and to couples.  I am currently offering online appointments via Skype/Zoom.

The COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions of lockdowns may have taken its toll on you emotionally and you may want to speak to someone about anxieties you have around the uncertainties of the current situation.  There may also be prior  or relational issues that you want to discuss that have been brought into sharp focus by the pandemic.

Talking to a therapist about your thoughts and feelings, when you are feeling distressed by difficult events or are troubled by something, can help you to work out what is bothering you.  It can also provide a time and space to explore new possibilities, which in turn may lead you to make positive changes in your life.

There are many reasons why someone might come to therapy.  I have worked with clients on a range of different problems and concerns, including:

Depression
Anxiety and stress
Issues around self-esteem and self-worth
Loss of meaning and lack of purpose in life
Work issues
Relationship difficulties
Bereavement and loss
Issues around identity and sexual identity
Obsessive feelings and behaviour

This list is not exhaustive, and whether you want to explore painful past events in your life, or the uncertainty you are feeling about what the future might hold, therapy can provide a confidential place to talk about your concerns.

I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is central to the success of therapy.  It is important for you to choose the right therapist.  If you feel I can help, please get in touch with me.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
