About me

I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor with 16 years post-qualification experience. I specialise in addictions (including gambling and disordered eating), PTSD, rape, sexual assault (historic and present), gender identity issues, sexuality questioning, 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.

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.
