I am delighted to have joined the Counselling Directory and having the opportunity for us to connect.
I am a Counsellor with experience in the Psychodynamic modality; although after working in different settings such as LGBT Foundation and 42nd Street (Manchester), I believe that my whole approach, has been enhanced by my contact with other professionals who use other modalities in their practice. Below is a link to some information about the modality I use.
The Psychodynamic approach allows me to work with all sorts of difficulties you may be encountering; some of the themes I work with in my practice are:
- Anxiety & Depression
- Loss & Grief
- Creative blocks
- Digital Dependency
But independent from the modality I use, the operating belief in my practice is that I respect your pace, attentively & compassionately listen to you, give you space to explore your challenges & difficulties safely, support you with developing techniques that work for you (based on gained awareness of yourself) and assist you with creating choices that are ultimately aligned with the authentic YOU.
The first step is often the most difficult, but if you contact me, together we can understand your needs.
Training, qualifications & experience

On the 'About' section you can check a comprehensive list of my training, qualifications and experience, including my latest CPD (Continuous Personal Development), in April 2019, TIST - Trauma work.
As a response to Covid 19, I have prepared my practice to serve my clients with sessions online, video & telephone; I have undergone training for this.
The lastest 'CPD' for me, has been on: Supporting Clients with Anxiety, Suicidal Thoughts, Self-Harm & Trauma, whilst working with them online.
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
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
