About me

As a fully qualified, experienced and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, I work with a wide range of people experiencing difficulties in their lives.  As well as private practice, I have worked in the NHS, community counselling and education. I offer short-term time-limited or more open-ended psychodynamic therapy depending on what is required.

Feelings of shame or guilt, anxiety, depression, relationship breakdown or family issues, affect most of us at some point to a greater or lesser degree. You may be feeling stuck and unable to make the changes that might improve things. You may not know what the real problem is, but just know you are unhappy with how you feel or behave. You may have been told that you have depression or generalised anxiety disorder and not really know what that means for you. It can be beneficial to have someone to think with, to help you identify issues and understand what is really going on

Understanding thoughts and patterns of behaviour in the context of past events or relationships, can help us to reflect helpfully on difficult feelings and the challenges we experience. This can offer relief from symptoms, physical as well as psychological. Having experienced the benefits of the therapeutic relationship in my own therapy, I offer a reflective space aimed at mobilising internal resources, improving relationships and facilitating acceptance and/or change.

I am happy to arrange a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your needs and expectations of the process.

I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Organisational Dynamics

Training, qualifications & experience

As an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to their ethical framework and guidelines for professional practice. This includes ensuring confidentiality and working respectfully.

I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling & Organisational Dynamics.  I have extensive counselling experience working with clients who present with a diverse range of issues, including depression and anxiety, stress, relationship issues and other mental health issues. The organisational component of my training can be helpful in terms of thinking about work or family issues.  I have past experience in a community counselling service, university counselling, and in GP surgeries.

To ensure I can help clients in the best way possible I undertake regular supervision of my work with an experienced practitioner, and participate in various training courses to ensure my continuing professional development and enhance my practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

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.
