Often life can become difficult when we find ourselves following a destructive pattern of behaviour that we can’t recognise or break. This affects the way we communicate within our relationships with others and can lead to anxiety and depression. Counselling can help by exploring past relationships, experience and traumas to make sense of present feelings and behaviour.
I offer a safe and confidential service based around a trusting and empathetic relationship with my clients. I work psychodynamically which means making sense of the present by exploring the past. I explore the unconscious because it is often what we can’t see in ourselves that can be the most destructive. Talking to a counsellor can open up a whole new way of thinking about oneself that can at times be enlightening.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
