About me

If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, feel stuck or sad or are having difficulties with relationships, I offer a safe, confidential environment to explore these problematic issues which prevent you from getting the most out of your life.

Whatever difficulties you’re feeling, working with a counsellor can give you the opportunity to talk and understand yourself, your life and your relationships better. Gaining this insight puts you in a stronger position to begin growing in confidence and start to make the changes or find the peace you want in your life.

My Approach

I am an experienced and qualified counsellor / psychotherapist and supervisor, who has worked for several years both in the NHS and community settings. I am used to working with varied and complex issues and recognize the importance of being flexible and focusing on the individual, with their unique needs and concerns.

I offer counselling for a range of issues and can help you to recognise patterns and behaviours which have built up over time, so you can make sense of your feelings, enabling you to see and address your difficulties in a more manageable way.

I see adults (over 18) of all ages with various emotional and psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, abuse, self harm, divorce and relationship issues, anger, low self-esteem and many other problems which are listed below.

What to expect from counselling

Deciding to start counselling and then choosing the right therapist can feel like a bewildering task. Therefore, I offer an initial consultation meeting which gives you the opportunity to check out whether you think counselling is right for you and whether I am the right counsellor to help you.

I work with individuals and currently do not provide couples counselling or therapy for children under 18..

If you choose to work with me we will meet once weekly for 50 minute sessions in a safe and private consulting room.

The length of therapy (be it short or longer term) depends on what you want to achieve and the types of issues you bring.

Please get in touch with any queries or questions about what therapy is about, to see if I can be of help to you.

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.

BPC
British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
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.

Wheelchair user access
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.
