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)
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
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.
