I am an experienced and qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor.
I am passionate about my work and see each person as unique with their own needs. We will work at a pace which feels comfortable to you and anything you decide to bring to our sessions can be thought about. Everything you have to say matters and is relevant.
I offer a warm and empathetic approach in a comfortable and confidential environment. I believe this helps to establish an honest and reliable relationship which is important for you to feel able to talk freely.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by the Code of Ethics. I hold an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, as well as an MSc in Applied Psychology and BSc in Psychology.
In addition to my private practice, I have worked with different organisations, including St Albans Counselling Foundation, St Albans Bereavement Network and MIND.
I hold full Professional Indemnity insurance and an enhanced DBS check.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
