About me

I offer a confidential, non-judgmental space for counselling and psychotherapy, where you can both find your voice and be heard. Sometimes simply being heard can be sufficient to alleviate pain and difficult feelings. In other instances having an external person to reflect and examine your emotions with can help bring clarity, understanding and acceptance.

I have over ten years experience delivering counselling and psychotherapy to clients from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, with wide-ranging motivations for commencing therapy. I trained in the Psychodynamic model of psychotherapy at one of the U.K.’s leading psychotherapy training institutes WPF Therapy and am an accredited member of the UKCP and a registered member with BACP and FPC. I am bound by their codes of professional conduct and ethical principles.

Additionally, I have over nine years experience working with adults in higher education presenting with disabilities, chronic health conditions, mental health problems, and specific learning difficulties (Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, ADD & ADHD) Asperger’s Syndrome/Autism, helping them build confidence and access means of support within their educational setting.

Committed to continuous professional and personal development (CPD). I also have experience of coaching and EFT.

I am open to new advances in wellness and alternative approaches. I feel that clients benefit from taking a holistic approach to mental and physical well-being, believing that the scope of personal growth is infinite. My view is that although our strongest resource is ourselves, support from others can help us access our full potential and through this ultimately become more independent.

How counselling or therapy can help you?

The psychodynamic technique aims to bring the unconscious mind into consciousness, through exploring one’s past and present experiences, perceptions and feelings. The relationship between the therapist and client can be utilised as a helpful tool to identify entrenched thoughts, feelings, behaviors and destructive patterns. Psychotherapy is a unique process which brings profound understanding and lasting change both personally and professionally, often the value of this is more far-reaching than what prompted clients to seek therapy in the first place. The process of self-discovery is empowering as it allows you to make informed decisions and not simply react unconsciously to internal and external stimulus, repeating unhelpful patterns or habitual ways of relating which reinforce dissatisfaction and despair. Self-reflection can at times be painful but can also be surprising and exciting, ultimately it is invaluable.

Having an independent therapist who is not a relative or friend to share this journey with you can bring a degree of security and freedom, enabling you to consider taking what may feel like emotional risks, resolve conflicts, action change where possible and begin to accept what is beyond your control.

Where to go from here?

If you feel that you would like to meet or are unsure, please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange an initial consultation.  I will aim to respond to you in order to arrange a time within 48 hours.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
