About me

Hello and thanks for looking at my profile. I am a fully-qualified, and experienced Psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor and work with adults of all ages and young people from the age of 16. 

I aim to offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space in which you can consider any material you choose to bring, and this can be undertaken in short-term or open-ended therapy, both in-person and online.

You may have a very specific issue or issues to bring to therapy; or you may not know precisely why you want to come, but just feel that it might help you. Whatever your circumstances may be, I will try to listen to you in a way which will frame our conversation to enable you to reach a deeper level of understanding about yourself, your patterns in life and any unconscious forces which might be present in your life. The therapeutic space is for you to fill, and I will not offer you advice or give you my opinion: what I will do is highlight some of what you say, and see where that takes us.

Therapy is above all, an act of listening. Through my listening to you in a way which you may not have experienced before, you may become able to listen to yourself in a different, and possibly more authentic, manner. 

 Therapy does not work to a template, there is no method or recipe. Two people sit in a room together and talk: what happens next is why we are there.


I am currently undertaking a course of further, specialised, training in therapy for couples, and will complete the first stage of this later in 2024. As part of this process, I am looking for some couples to work with, and can offer therapy at a reduced rate of £75 per 50-minute session. These sessions will, at this time, only be available online.

Member organisations

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.

Accredited register membership
