About me

As a professionally trained psychodynamic psychotherapist with extensive experience, I can assist with various presenting problems, including work or study issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, obsessive behaviours, sexuality issues, relationships, and the loss of meaning or purpose in life. Even if your issue does not fit into these categories, psychotherapy can be a process of discovery and understanding.
I aim to provide a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the difficulties, imbalances, stresses, or questions an individual may be struggling with in their outer and/or inner life.
Sessions typically run for 50 minutes and we would aim to meet at least once per week at a time and day that suits your schedule. If your availability is outside of the times offered, please let me know and I will try to arrange something.
Feel free to ask me any questions or queries you may have.

Please note that if you prefer email communication, check your junk mail as I try to respond to enquiries within 1-3 business days.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
