About me

I have been a therapist for many years covering the Buckinghamshire and Middlesex areas. It is important when looking for a therapist to find someone sufficiently qualified, that you feel comfortable with.

I offer one to one therapy to adults in a confidential, supportive and non-judgemental space enabling you to work through the issues that impact on your everyday life. Therapy can be short or long term depending on your needs and what presents in the sessions.

I have worked with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship problems, sexuality, anger, bereavement - to name a few. Using complimenting elements of several models of working and then tailoring my approach to what is best suited to you, I will help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself by exploring the life experiences and events that cause you to react and interact to life in a particular way.

I offer an initial one hour assessment to discuss the current troubles you are facing, which is causing you distress. I will listen and then we can look at understanding why you feel the way you do and ways to alleviate your suffering and move towards a resolution by working together to achieve this.

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.
