About me

I trained in two very different styles of therapy (cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic) because people come to therapy for many reasons, and I wanted my work to embody the breadth of what therapy covers - from the evidence-based and goal-directed, to the creative and mysterious. 

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is solution-focused and involves practical steps. It's particularly recommended for anxiety and depression by the NHS.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy focuses on the unconscious (those things outside of our awareness). It provides a framework for personality exploration and self-expression. 

Something I find rewarding about working as a therapist is the variety of people I get to know. Everyone brings a problem that requires detective work and planning, or a story with layers that has something important to say about who they are.

Please feel free to send me an email. If you'd like to know a bit more about me and the way I work, please visit my website.

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.
