Psychodynamic Counsellor MBACP

About me

I am a qualified practitioner with a broad range of experience, working in private practice. I offer once weekly individual Psychodynamic Counselling for adults which can be open ended, long term work or I offer short term, time limited sessions. I provide a warm, non-judgemental and confidential therapeutic environment for individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings and everyday challenges.

I work in an empathic, relational way and provide a safe space for the exploration of thoughts and feelings in order to develop a therapeutic relationship based on trust and security. Together we can make links to your past experiences with the aim to make the unconscious more conscious, leading to more self awareness and ultimately to significant changes enabling you to live a more fulfilled and satisfied life.

How counselling can help

You may be seeking therapy because you are experiencing difficult feelings and emotions such as stress, anxiety, anger or low self esteem. You may have relationship difficulties  or work related issues. You may have had a recent bereavement or are experiencing the impact of abuse, either as a child or as an adult. Our work together will be confidential and is a way of giving yourself time to reflect, process and make positive changes in your life.

I believe that psychological well-being is important for people in order that they can lead full, satisfying and creative lives. My aim is to help each individual to reach a healthy outcome. In this way I support clients to develop clarity and insight into their difficulties, whilst enabling them to have the skills to deal more effectively with the challenges they are facing.

The values of my practice are founded on the principles of respect, inclusiveness and providing appropriate support, tailored to the individuals needs and I achieve this through integrating practical and theoretical approaches.

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.
