I have had private practice for a number of years and as well as having extensive experience in the charity sector, providing both long term and short term psychotherapy to a range of clients. I have experience working with a broad range of issues including grief, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, paranoia, relationship difficulties, parenting issues, trauma and abuse. I believe that given the chance to be truly listened to and thought about in a safe environment can bring about changes that you could not otherwise achieve without therapy. Your potential to live life without constant worries, anxieties, panic and repeating patterns, may be something you have never had a chance to experience before.
I am practical as well as theoretical, having studied psychodynamic counselling to an advanced diploma level. I believe in the power of the unconscious mind guiding our behaviours and thoughts. As we work together to excavate these hidden depths, you will start to experience relief, which ultimately leads to better psychological health and self awareness. I am also able to help you move forward with your life once we have uncovered what is holding you back with a more cognitive behavioural approach. Therefore your therapy has the opportunity to evolve and grow as you do.
I combine safety, security and warmth with gentle challenging to create a trusting therapeutic relationship. In this environment with open dialogue and collaboration, you will feel more empowered to find yourself, your voice, your autonomy and individuality.

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.
