About me

Some feelings and problems are hard to understand or to bear. Sometimes they are overwhelming in their intensity or sometimes we just feel stuck, as if things will never change. They may arise from a sudden personal crisis or from a relationship or from ongoing anxiety or depression. They can belong to the present but can also be rooted in painful experiences from the past.

I offer a safe place where you will be heard and where we can think together about what is happening in the present, reflect on patterns and links from the past and explore how change can happen.

Taking that first step

Starting therapy can feel a big step and finding the right therapist for you is always important. I offer an initial session, or more, so we can talk about your difficulties and start to get to know each other. We can then decide how we want to move forward, whether over a short term period or with an open-ended time frame.

Email or give me a call to arrange an initial session.

I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and have worked for many years with adults of all ages and backgrounds and with a wide range of concerns and problems.

I am UKCP accredited and a registered member of BACP. I am bound by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

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.


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.


UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
