About me

My therapeutic approach is collaborative and pluralistic. Depending on each client’s particular situation, an experience of therapy is jointly created that aims to help the person get closer to their unique potential and desired life outcomes. This way of working is informed by humanistic principles and ideas from a broad range of philosophical and psychotherapeutic disciplines. These include psychodynamic theory and third wave cognitive-behavioural techniques that are pluralistically adapted to meet the needs of each individual client.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a post-graduate diploma in psychodynamic counselling (PG-Dip Counselling) (University of Sussex). I have worked for a number of years as an addiction treatment therapist for the Priory Group. I also have an MSc in psychology. My work in the NHS has included neuropsychiatry (2.5 years), health psychology (1 year) and working with the Voices Clinic (2 years). I have also held a full time post working for the NHS Veterans' Treatment, Liaison and Intervention Service (TILS).

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.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

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.
