About me

Examining thoughts, feelings, and emotions is a path that leads to self discovery and adjusting our behaviours in less unfortunate directions. Therapy helps because it is an environment where we try and disentangle thoughts, feelings and any underlying concerns that seem to be burdening your decisions and life. At times it can be challenging to re-examine difficult situations or simply talk about current issues; however, it is this first step of talking through these moments that can improve one’s life.

I am a psychotherapist with experience in the UK and abroad. My work spans across different issues that, I believe, at some point in our lives most people deal with, from feelings of depression and anxiety, to family and peer relationship problems, to losing meaning in life and feelings of loneliness and isolation. Also, I have worked with people that have gone through struggles with personality problems, bereavement and grief, and abuse and trauma.

I offer psychodynamic therapy that emphasizes the importance of early experiences and relationships in life and through talking and analysing we come to new understandings and ways of being.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
