About me

CORONAVIRUS:

I feel it is important to make special mention of this current situation and the psychological and emotional impact it may have on many of you. It is imperative, that although physical isolation may well be necessary, you do not isolate yourself if mental and emotional support is needed. I, like many therapists, am able to work remotely via Skype or other video call mediums. So please do not remain alone with difficult feelings at this uncertain time. Get in touch and I will be happy to offer sessions in this way. You do not need to be alone.

                              ----------------------------------------------------

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. I work with a variety of issues that affect people's lives including; relationships, marriage, divorce, family life, parenting issues, bereavement and loss, eating disorders, body image, identity, sexuality, self esteem and self confidence, trauma and PTSD, adolescence, work and career life, addiction issues and for many people, simply struggling to cope with life and the individual pressures it may pose.

I see adult clients of all ages, and young people from the age of 16 years old. I provide a safe, impartial and confidential space for my clients to speak openly and freely and be listened to. For some, it is simply having the opportunity to talk and be heard. So simple, but so valuable.

Together, we aim to make sense of difficulties and explore the roots of these issues so that a better understanding of yourself can allow for changes that can improve the quality of your life.

I offer both short-term counselling and longer, open-ended therapy, depending on a client's particular needs.

- Post Graduate Diploma in Contemporary Therapeutic Counselling

- Certificate in Counselling

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

Member organisations

BACP

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

I am able to offer sessions remotely for anyone unable to attend a session in person.
