Lock Down and Therapy
Counselling and psychotherapy sessions are considered as “health related” appointments, and importantly they are a mental health intervention.
I currently check forehead temperatures, issue hand gel, clean chairs and the therapy environment. Patients sit 2.5 metres apart from myself when working, the therapy chairs are next to open windows for good ventilation.
I ask people to where a mask / face covering when entering the building, and walking to my office. I am continuing to work one to one, and giving people the choice to work via Zoom if they prefer.

Anxiety and Depression
I work closely with individuals, learning to understand anxiety and depression from their prospective, how they feel, what they believe, and how they see themselves in the world around them. Together we work towards tackling problems, with a view for the person to be able to self-cope and more independent when problems arise.
Borderline Personality Disorder / Emotional Unstable Personality Disorder(BPD/EUPD)
As a past sufferer, I have insight into the chaos and disruption this condition creates.
I treat patients individually, and offer a group experience with other sufferers, where people can share listen, support and learn together ways to reduce emotional dysregulation.
I specialise in the following conditions:
Personality Disorders through Clusters A - C, Borderline Personality
Disorder (BPD/EUPD) , Acute Anxiety, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Behaviours (OCD), Narcissism, Avoidant Personality Disorder, Transgender Issues, and LGBTQ.
Self-Esteem and Confidence, Panic Attacks, Work Related Issues, Grief and Loss.
Abuse, Trauma and Domestic violence:
I work with patients who are victims of traumatising events.
Often these experiences leave a post traumatic disturbance with the individual, family or group. Those affected frequently have a feeling-memory of the event, that invades their life on a daily basis. Using Integrated Psychotherapy and Counselling, I am able to work with people sensitively, in order to help them begin to work through their critical experience, towards more self control and balance.
I work with individuals sensitively, in order for them to move towards feeling free to experience the pleasure of sex, intimacy, and feeling happy with more confidence.
As an Integrative Psychodynamic Therapist, I use a variety of therapeutic models when working with patients. I practice Relational Psychotherapy, and incorporate the models of Existentialism, Psychodynamic Transference Focused Psychotherapy, Humanistic Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy elements (DBT), Transpersonal Philosophy, and Mindfulness Therapy.
I work with patients from 18 years of age.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Week days and early evenings
I follow the traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and took refuge in this philosophy in 2002.
The way of Buddhism weaves through my practice, and assists new theory where personality disorders, anxiety and depression are concerned.
