I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor with13 years post-qualification experience. I specialise in addictions (including gambling and eating disorders), and also have extensive understanding and knowledge with relationship problems, work and home stress related issues, anxiety, depression, sexual problems and general well-being issues.
In both supervision and counselling we will explore and challenge perceptions, ideas and beliefs as a way to see new perspectives and discover potential within.
I work in an informal way in a safe and warm setting. Confidentiality is assured as is a non-judgmental attitude.
The amount of sessions we have is open-ended; we can have short or long-term counselling.

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.

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).
