Psychodynamic Counsellor and Family Therapist

About me

I have been a qualified therapist for a number of years, offering individual therapy to adults and children, exploring what gets in the way of a rewarding life; I also trained in Systemic Psychotherapy and I provide Family Therapy to family groups. Alongside my private practice,  I am a Family Therapist in the NHS.

As an experienced family therapist I know that family life can be challenging enough, but an event like a house move or a death, or a situation involving rows or bullying can tip things over the edge.  My aim is to provide a useful thinking space to assess what is going wrong and decide the steps to get back on track.  I can work one to one with the most affected family member, or offer a space for your family to think together about what is not working for you. Sometimes a combination of the two is the most supportive way forwards.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor. My Diploma is from the WPF training body and have been providing one to one counselling for many years.

I am also a Systemic Practitioner. I trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London. I have extensive experience working with parents and families, and I have a special interest in child development and parenting.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.
