Hi, You are here perhaps because you have come to recognise that certain situation has become too difficult to handle. We all go through moments of overwhelming feelings, confusion and pain. that is when counselling helps. I am a practitioner with many years of experience. I can help you to explore your issues and think about them. I have great sympathy for people whose problems have been dismissed as trivial or silly. You will find a trusting and caring space to share whatever is worrying you. I am most helpful to those who are experiencing depression, anxiety and personality disorders or those who have a history of abuse or trauma.
The orientation of my practice is Psychodynamic and psychoanalytic. This approach explores relationship dynamics and the emotional root of the issues. It is also about uncovering the unconscious meaning of what we do and experience in order to manage ourselves better. I have a special interest in religion and spirituality.
You are very welcome to contact me for an initial chat over the phone. All communications are treated in confidence. due to covid, most of my work is online: phone, skype, zoom etc. feel free to contact me to discuss availability, suitability or method of delivery.

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have worked with the Croydon Counselling Foundation, an agency accredited by BACP as a counsellor and assessor.
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.
