As a psychodynamic therapist I offer once weekly face-to-face therapy in a supportive, understanding environment. My approach encourages self-reflection and self-examination, allowing you to understand the influence of the past on present behaviour and feelings. This enables you to examine unresolved conflicts and their consequences, giving you back more control in daily life. Working within the ethical framework of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I provide confidential and non-judgemental counselling to individuals looking for short term and open ended therapy on a variety of issues, offering you space to take a positive step towards insight and awareness.
Practising in both private and charity sectors, my background includes working with anxiety, depression, sexuality and identity alongside bereavement and loss.

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

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).
