About me

I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychoanalytic psychotherapist with 12 years experience, working both within an agency setting and in private practice. I have also worked for 7 years as an honorary psychotherapist in an NHS psychotherapy unit and currently work at a children's charity with the parents of children with emotional and behavioural difficulties.

My core training has been in psychodynamic/psychoanalytic counselling and psychotherapy. This approach sees the mind as a dynamic system, which is often in conflict, and the impact on our mind of the way we have been related to in the past can trigger feelings, thoughts and behaviours in the present, which can cause us a great deal of upset and emotional difficulty. Over the years I have encountered and worked with most of the causes and effects of emotional distress, including depression, grief, anger issues, anxiety and panic states, relationship and sexual problems, eating disorders, bullying/abuse and self harm.

My current way of working involves “empathic attunement” – enabling my clients to feel listened to, understood and affirmed in a way they often weren’t in childhood. Many of us have a sense of self that is fragile, because when we were upset or afraid, our parents or carers were unable to regulate our feelings and either ignored, shamed or punished us, leaving us thinking that there was something wrong with us and our feelings, and leaving us more inclined to keep things to ourselves and sort things out on our own when we were worried upset or frightened, rather than turn to others for help. I work with both individual clients and couples and offer a short 16 session form of dynamic interpersonal therapy which is particularly suitable for clients experiencing an episode of depression and/or anxiety.

I also teach on a BACP accredited psychodynamic counselling diploma course, which allows me to stay in touch with new therapeutic developments and techniques.

If you feel I may be able to help you, please feel free to contact me for more information.

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.
