It is common to experience emotional distress in life from time-to-time, but sometimes we need help with managing this. Difficulties can range from a general feeling of low mood or anxiety, the pressure of challenging life events such as loss or relationship-breakdown, or coming to terms with historical events.
As a qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, I will provide a safe and supportive environment so that you feel able to explore your current thoughts and feelings by drawing from past experiences. From here, we can try to understand their impact on your present, and consider how you might wish to move forward.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have completed a PG Dip in Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counselling, and a Masters in Psychotherapy. Prior to my training I have experience of working within the social care sector, as well as corporate businesses. I currently work through a university and a charity clinic, alongside my own private practice. I have worked with a wide age range of clients with a variety of presenting problems.
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.
