About me

Psychotherapy will be different for each of us. My priority is to create a space for you to speak about your thoughts and feelings free from judgement. Through the careful discussion of your experiences, we can make better sense of the challenges you face. This process is not always easy but can lead to greater self-understanding and future wellbeing.

My practice is informed by psychoanalytic and existential approaches. This means focusing on the here-and-now, the things we think about ourselves, the past, the future - but also our unconscious motives, bringing to light what has been kept in the dark.

I offer open-ended therapy and am happy to meet weekly, or twice weekly depending on what works for you.

If you are interested in beginning psychotherapy please do get in touch, we can arrange an initial meeting and after that decide if you wish to continue.

Training, qualifications & experience

Completed course in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Guild of Psychotherapists and working towards full UKCP accreditation

Besides my work in private practice, I am a therapist with the Guild of Psychotherapists' low fee clinic offering affordable therapy to members of the local community.  I am also a volunteer therapist with the Psychosis Therapy Project.

Member organisations


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.
