I am a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, on the BACP Register, who offers once or twice weekly counselling sessions to individuals and couples on a long term or short term basis. I work in private practice in Wimbledon Park and am also within easy reach of the following postcodes, SW18, SW19 & SW20.
I have a wide range of experience in dealing with all areas of mental health issues such as:-
- Relationship issues
- Couple Counselling
- Bipolar Disorder
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Suicidal Ideation
- Anger Management
- Low confidence & self-esteem issues
- Parenting & family issues
- Separation & divorce
- Affairs & betrayal
- Life changes etc.
In psychodynamic & psychoanalytical work, we look at unconscious processes and consider that problems and distress in the present may be related to early experiences of which we are no longer aware. These experiences can result in repeating patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving, which can have a lasting and damaging effect on experience in the present. Understanding these patterns which are hidden beneath the surface and making them conscious helps to develop personal insight and self-awareness in order to facilitate change and personal growth.
Talking can really help to ease your emotional pain and distress and can also assist you on your journey of self development and individuation. The individuation process is a term created by the famous Psychologist, Carl Gustav Jung, to describe the process of becoming aware of oneself, one's make-up and the way to discover one's, true inner self. This he believed was a most important task from mid life onward.
Perhaps, you do not feel that you have any particular problems that need addressing but are generally feeling dissatisfied and unhappy with your life and do not know why. You may have reached a particular life stage, where you feel 'stuck' and your life lacks meaning and direction and you are fearful of what lies ahead. Step by step, we can start to look at the issues that may be troubling you in a safe, supportive, strictly confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I offer a free, informal, no obligation, telephone consultation so that you can get a feel for who I am and whether you have a connection with me. I can also answer any questions you may have about the process of counselling and psychotherapy and how it can help you. However difficult that first step may feel, please call me on 07788 110529 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange an initial appointment to see whether you would like us to work together on whatever issues may be troubling you.

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.
Accredited register membership
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
