About me

If you're here looking for help then chances are your previous ways of coping aren't working as well as they use to. Whether that was simply avoiding the difficulty or trying to distract yourself from it, it's not going away anymore. This could have been with you for some time and reared itself during the pandemic when the thing you used to cope was taken away from you. Maybe it was alcohol, drugs, food or sex. I'd like to offer you psychotherapy as a way to transform your situation. I have over 8 years experience in private practice, I'm also registered with the BACP (the largest association in the UK).

I offer both short term (usually 12-16 sessions) and longer term therapy. The longer term being on an open ended basis where we can review the work together, deciding on an ending when appropriate. Short term work is usually more concentrated, think gaining clarity on something specific.

I am trained in psychodynamic theory, so I'm interested in your early attachments, unconscious processes and patterns in your relationships which often reveal themselves in the therapy relationship. If you'd like to talk to me and perhaps set something up then please send me an email in the first instance. From there we can establish where to go next.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access

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.
