About me

Hello, welcome to my profile page. Perhaps you are feeling anxious or depressed. You may be struggling with major concerns, or finding it hard to resolve a particular situation. Perhaps you have experienced a bereavement or trauma, or are uncertain about a relationship. Whatever you wish to talk about, I would like to support you.

My purpose in the counselling process is to broaden your self-understanding and insight into your concerns. Our work together is Open-ended rather than a fixed number of sessions, which means we have time and space in which to move towards the outcomes you want to achieve.

I have considerable experience in supporting people through many of life's challenges, and firmly believe in the value of talking through problems. I offer an In-Person confidential space in which we can explore your concerns.

I also offer Zoom sessions.

I work with individual adults over 18;  LGBTQ+;  senior citizens.

I offer some concessionary rates according to need.

Training, qualifications & experience

 Certificate, Diploma, and Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling.

Member organisations

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

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).
