About me

If you are considering Counselling/Psychotherapy you are most likely experiencing some emotional difficulties. Perhaps you are feeling stuck, are experiencing difficulties in relationships, feelings of depression, anxiety, self-doubt or physical symptoms. I offer a confidential space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings, so that you may find ways to change what is not working for you.

Psychotherapy also known as "talking therapy" is a "special" kind of conversation between the therapist and their client. Typically, during a session, I will encourage you to speak about what is happening for you in the present. However, often there are difficulties that are repeated, carried over from early childhood that may continue affecting your life specifically at times of crisis. The work of Psychotherapy is to help you gain awareness of your difficulties so that you may find ways to make changes and re-connect with your own unique creativity.

I am an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist and a member of the BACP. My practice is based in Psychodynamic/ Psychoanalytic theory and in particular Lacanian theory. In therapy, the quality of the relationship between client and therapist is directly linked to the successful outcome of the therapy sessions, therefore the first session is an opportunity to get to know each other and see if we can work together.

Therapy sessions can vary from short-term or be open-ended.

For enquiries, please email me at : mpntherapy@gmail.com or phone me on 07912610722.

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.
