Psychodynamic counsellor MBACP

About me

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).

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.
