With over 25 years experience working in the public (NHS) sector and in private practice, I use a Psychodynamic and a Person Centered approach to offer Psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups in line with the BACP's Code of Ethics as a Senior Accredited Member.
I offer a safe, private space for consultations, at my rooms in Wisbech. I work alongside GP's, Hospitals, NHS services and other Health Professionals providing counselling for clients across Cambs, West Norfolk, South Lincs.
As a Registered Mental Health Nurse since 1980 I became interested in the benefits of Pychodynamic Psychotherapy, and in 1989 began pursuing a career in this sector, studying for my Diploma in Pychodynamic Counselling which I gained in 1995, and developed my expertise becoming a Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Pychotherapy in 1998. With a particular interest in Eating Disorders, Hearing Voices programmes and Abuse services I studied for and gained the ENB Eating Disorders qualification in 2001, attending conferences on Hearing Voices in 2002. This range of experience led to me researching for a Masters Degree in Psychoanalytical Studies in which I Graduated in 2004.
I work with HR/Occupational Health services and EAPs. If you have an Employee Assistance Programme please contact them in the first instance to ask for a referral. I also welcome self-referrals and Student Counsellors for therapy.
Asking for help can be difficult, so all enquiries are welcomed, respected and treated in confidence.

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 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).
