MBACP, Psychodynamic and CBT Therapist

About me

Are you feeling anxious and this is affecting your daily life? Maybe you feel low in mood and are unable to see any positives in what you are doing.  Are you having relationship difficulties or have you been struggling with childhood trauma that you feel is the cause for your current struggles? There are many reasons why we seek therapy , you may wish to make some changes to your situation or  explore your past to understand why you are feeling the way  you are. Whatever your reason, it can help to talk through your thoughts with a counsellor in a safe non judgemental space. I offer long and short term therapy and use different therapeutic approaches to help you work through possible options for change.

I am a warm, non judgmental Psychodynamic and CBT therapist. I have over 11 years experience working with adults and young people who have experienced a wide range of issues. I work with depression, anxiety,  generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety, childhood trauma, panic attacks, low self esteem, low self confidence, anger, couples counselling, family issues, trauma, self harm, suicidal thoughts, domestic abuse, work related stress, I will work alongside you to explore the difficulties you may be facing. Therapy can help you to work through your thoughts and your feelings to make sense of them and to find a way forward so you are able to live the life you want to live. 

Maybe your relationships are causing you difficulties and you are questioning the behaviour of someone in your life? Is that behaviour leaving you questioning your own sensitivity? You may be in a relationship with someone who is manipulating you, showing strong signs of having narcissistic traits and their behaviour is impacting on your own wellbeing. 

I have a wide range of experience and have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds who present with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, trauma, narcissistic abuse, relationship issues, self esteem issues and work-related stress.

I am a member of the BACP and BABCP and I work within their ethical standards and continue to work within their framework and code of ethics.  I have regular monthly supervision and continue to attend up to date training to enhance my counselling toolkit.

I currently have availability for new clients face to face, online via zoom or telephone.

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.
