About me

People sometimes find themselves overwhelmed with difficult feelings and it is hard to find a way through.  This may be due to a complex, difficult relationship, a significant loss or a repeating pattern of behaviour which you are unhappy about - or other factors.

Sometimes present day distress can have links with earlier times.  Psychodynamic therapy can offer the opportunity to explore and work through these issues with the therapist.

I work in a private practice in a quiet, confidential and professional environment. I have experience of working with clients with a range of issues including depression, loss, anxiety, problems with anger, relationship difficulties and low self esteem.  Other areas I have worked with are listed below.

I am a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I ascribe to their Ethical Framework.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a five year BACP Accredited Training in Psychodynamic Counselling and I work with adults (age 18+) in long and short term work, covering a range of difficulties.

Qualifications:  Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling, Foundation Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling.  I did all the above trainings at The Counselling Foundation, St. Albans, a BACP Accredited course provider.

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.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
