How I work.
My role as a psychotherapist is to work with you in developing a deeper understanding of yourself. Our sessions will offer you a confidential, non-judgmental space in which we explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours both conscious and unconscious. I am relationally-trained and my fundamental belief is that therapeutic change and your personal growth is enabled through the use of our therapeutic relationship.
Psychotherapy leads to significant and lasting beneficial changes in your life, it provides support in times of crisis and enables you to handle challenge, improve relationships and reduce feelings of depression and anxiety.

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.
