About me

**Currently Taking New Clients on Skype ** Is life frustrating? Are you anxious, or having relationship difficulties? I offer a welcoming, confidential space to share & overcome life's difficulties.

I offer short and long term therapy and counselling for people experiencing life's difficulties including relationship issues, depression, low self-esteem, anxiety and bereavement. I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist with a psychodynamic orientation.  This means I can work in a variety of ways and ensure that you get the best possible support for the issues you want to explore.  I offer individual long and short term therapy and can see people once a week or more frequently.

The way we are going to work together is something we would agree.  Sometimes CBT is helpful for the immediate relief of symptoms, helping with panic and for anger management.  Other times a more meditative and mindful approach might be more helpful in relieving stress, anxiety and depression. Sometime it's preferable to concentrate on understanding and finding new ways to deal with life’s daily difficulties, perhaps in understanding why patterns of abuse repeat themselves. Many people also find working with dreams highly beneficial.

However we proceed you are guaranteed an atmosphere of thoughtful compassion, intelligent reflection and openness.

Training, qualifications & experience

Before training I worked in higher education where I was responsible for running a large media studies department with close to 1000 students. I understand the realities of the work place and its pressures, budgets, and management concerns.

During my training I worked for the NHS for four years as an Honorary Psychotherapist as part of the mental health services team seeing a range of clients with issues such as OCD, depression, addictions and personality disorders.

I use a range of models including mindfulness, CBT and Jungian ways of working.

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.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
