About me

Sometimes it can feel as if life throws us in at the deep end, leaving us feeling confused and lost.  Talking about the loss of a loved one, a relationship breakdown, anxiety and depression, panic attacks or perhaps feeling stuck in your life can help to process these difficult experiences and feelings. I offer a confidential and non-judgmental space where we are able to think together, explore your needs and bring new life to your self-awareness.

We can work short or long term depending on where you feel you are now in life and what you need from counselling. We can explore your life experiences, early and present relationships which can help bring a greater understanding of what brought you to seek counselling now. I work with young adults and beyond exploring a range of emotions such as depression, anxiety, loss, sexuality, self-harm, anger, panic attacks, obsessive behaviour, bereavement, family issues, stress and work related stress.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • BA Hons - The London Institute
  • Foundation Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling
  • Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling
  • Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling

I have worked in the creative industry for over 15 years and use this experience to explore your inner world in a creative and visual way when memories can often provide such vivid imagery.

I also believe that many of our emotions manifest in the body as pain - I can work with you to gain a greater understanding of your physical symptoms.

Member organisations

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.
