About me

I am an experienced psychodynamic counsellor/Psychotherapist. I offer open-ended or time-limited therapy in a confidential space. I have experience working with anxiety, depression, relationships, Borderline personality, life changes and cultural issues.

Working psychodynamically means dealing with unconscious belief systems that could be impacting on your current choices. This exploration brings new understanding and helps you get unstuck and see issues from a different perspective.

Due to the current situation, I now offer online sessions on Zoom, as well as telephone counselling.

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.
