About me

I am a professionally trained psychodynamic psychotherapist with extensive experience of working with a variety of presenting problems, including work or study issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions, obsessive behaviours, sexuality issues and relationships as well as the loss of meaning or purpose in life.

Perhaps what you are experiencing doesn't fit the categories above and you feel that there may not be a definition of the issue. That is ok also as psychotherapy can be a process of discovering or working towards a definition or understanding.

Psychotherapy is a specialist talking treatment with the aim to help people to explore their lives in order to understand and work through emotional and psychological problems. I am to provide a form of psychotherapy that focuses on the difficulties, imbalances, stresses, or questions an individual might be struggling with within their outer and/or inner life.

Sessions typically run for 50 minutes and, initially, we would aim to meet at least once per week at a time and day that would suit your schedule.

I have included my current availability, however, please do check if your availability is outside of the times offered and I will see what I can arrange.

For any further information or if you have any questions or queries please do feel free to ask.

Please note, if you prefer I respond to your enquiry via email do check your junk mail - 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.
