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.

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.
