I offer a gentle, non-judgemental space in which to reflect on and explore any difficulties you may be experiencing. My integrative, relational approach means we can work together to understand your needs and tailor the support to your personal requirements and experiences. This may involve looking at your past and how it is still impacting your present, such as in your relationships or any unhelpful behaviours, and may include cognitive and behavioural techniques if agreed this may be useful.
Dip Counselling; MBACP (Registered)
I am particularly experienced in working with eating disorders, addiction and compulsive behaviours, and bereavement.
I am also qualified in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills and at times incorporate this into the therapeutic work as relevant.
I am in advanced Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist training at the Guild of Psychotherapists in London.
Please contact me to set up an initial session where we'll talk about what you hope to get from counselling and how it could work; if we're both happy to continue we would then arrange to meet weekly.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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.
