I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I offer long-term and brief counselling to adults; providing a confidential, non-judgemental and safe space where we can explore anything you find difficult, confusing or upsetting.
I have experience with a wide range of issues, such as anxiety and depression and believe a relationship of trust is important in counselling work.
The aim of counselling is to provide a safe space so you may reflect on your experiences and to try to make sense of your situation. Psychodynamic counselling seeks to understand how the present situation may be influenced by past experiences, often in childhood. The counselling work I provide helps you to understand how your current difficulties and patterns may be repeated throughout life. It can help explore unresolved issues that are outside of your awareness, which may be affecting behaviour and mood. We will work together to enable you to understand your emotions and reactions.
Finding a counsellor can be confusing, it is important that you feel the relationship with a counsellor is right for you.
Please contact me by telephone or email to arrange a no obligation discussion. This may progress to a first session and commencement of counselling, should you choose to do so.
Issues I can help with:
Abuse, Anger, Anxiety, Autism Spectrum, Bereavement, Cultural issues, Depression, Disability, Health related issues, Identity, Infertility, Loss, Men’s Issues, Menopause, Pregnancy, Sexuality, Sexual Identity, Stress, Trauma (List not exhaustive).

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
