About me

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.

  • 17+ years spent working in the addiction field.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
