About me

Having been trained as a Psychodynamic psychotherapist and working in local authority and NHS services for over 25 years, this has allowed me to provide therapy from an experienced position that enables me to work in a way that is practical, accessible and thoughtful to your needs. I have a great deal of experience of working with adults, children, and families. this allows me to understand the importance of relationships and the dynamics that occur within and between people and the lives that they live.

Anxiety and loss can show itself in many forms and can underpin many life changes that highlight separation. This provides people with challenges that they may need support to understand and ultimately work through. If you have ever felt ‘I can’t manage’ therapy is a place to experience a relationship that enables you to feel the unmanageable can be managed.

I invite you to get in touch and look forward to hearing from you and thinking with you a way forward.

Member organisations


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.
