About me

**I am offering telephone and videocall sessions during the current Covid-19 lockdown situation. Please contact me to discuss this further**

I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).  I offer brief and long term, one-to-one counselling for young people (16+) and adults.  Psychodynamic therapy focuses on both the past and present, looking at the role of the unconscious and past experiences and how this influences current behaviour.  I work by helping you identify and recognise how emotional patterns from early childhood may repeat themselves in later life in confusing or destructive ways.

I work with a wide range of issues such as: relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, bereavement, trauma and work-related problems, as well as the many other issues which may be impacting your quality of life and emotional wellbeing.

I offer a non-judgmental, safe, confidential and supportive place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful or uncomfortable.  I will draw upon my Psychodynamic background and also use my CBT and mindfulness resources in order to give you the tools and the self-confidence to begin moving forward.

I believe that each client is unique and so my approach encourages the client to lead the work, enabling the therapy to be tailored to each individual client and their specific needs.

I will work with you to explore your thoughts and feelings, helping you to understand where they may have come from and how they may be affecting your life and relationships in the here and now. Through the insight gained comes the opportunity for change and the chance to lead a healthier, happier life.

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.
