About me

As well as a career coach, I am a qualified psychotherapist, a registered member of the BACP and the BPC and have an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have worked as a voluntary psychotherapist in the NHS and in a community charity. I am experienced in dealing with work-related difficulties and performing under pressure and am interested in the interaction between individual stress, psychological disturbance and organisational dynamics.  In my work I have assisted with a range of issues including stress management, anxiety, depression, relationship problems and life transitions.

I work in a psychodynamic way, enabling clients to explore and link past with present experiences and address past unresolved conflicts. This can create lasting behavioural change and better informed choices. I have a particular interest in trauma, OCD, abuse, loss (bereavement, redundancy), and self-harm (substance abuse, eating disorders). I have experience of working with a range of difficulties including borderline and narcissistic personality disorders and can provide both short-term and longer-term counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).  I am also a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).

I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy (Distinction) from Birkbeck College, University of London

I am also a qualified Career Coach (Academy of Executive Coaching) and hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Career Counselling and Consultancy from Birkbeck College.

I have a B.A.(Hons) degree in French.

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
