About me

I have over 15 years experience working as a mental health professional within the charity sector and the NHS.

My therapy practice offers a safe, confidential and empathic setting in which to identify, explore and work through issues that may be affecting your life. I am committed to offering thoughtful, non-judgmental psychotherapy and welcome clients from all backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, religions and sexual orientations.

My approach is psychodynamic and relational and I believe that each person is unique in the way that they experience life with its dilemmas, conflicts, traumas, contradictory feelings, desires, hopes and aspirations. My therapeutic approach focuses on the client and to help find a way of developing understandings of their inner-world to help provide purpose and meaning in finding a way forward.

My practice is flexible. I offer long-term face-to-face work, short-term face-to-face work, online sessions (via Zoom or Skype) and telephone counselling. The first step is to email or telephone to arrange an initial meeting which will provide an opportunity for us to meet and explore whether you might find therapy helpful. If you decide you would like to continue then we would arrange a regular day and time to meet. Sessions last for 50 minutes.

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.
