About me

I offer counselling and psychotherapy, both short term and long term, in a safe and comfortable environment.
I have over twenty years experience of helping individuals of all ages, couples, and groups, as well supervision for other practitioners.
I also offer one-off workshops for various activities such as team-building, closure, etc.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered and senior accredited member of BACP; I have an MA in counselling and psychotherapy from the University of San Francisco; a BS in human relations and organisational behaviour from the same institution, and I engage in ongoing continuing professional development  (CPD) in both the UK (where I was born) and USA where I lived and worked for many years.
I am a fully trained EMDR practitioner and I have trained as a supervisor with both Cascade Organisation and the British Association for Psychotherapy (BAP).
In addition to my membership in the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I am also a member of the International Association for Psychoanalytic Self Psychology.
I work both privately and as an associate with a variety of employee assistance organisations.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.
