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.

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.
