About me

I am committed to a confidential, non-judgemental and respectful approach, showing empathy, competence and sincerity whilst supporting you in finding your way through life changes.

Psychodynamic counselling helps people review emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences, and their present-day problems to identify patterns they have developed over time. Recognising recurring patterns helps people see the ways in which they avoid distress or develop defence mechanisms as a way of coping so that they can take steps to change these patterns.

Psychodynamic Counselling works by bringing the unconscious thoughts and feelings to the surface. There is an emphasis on the influence of the past, and on recurring patterns of relationships. A difficult and painful situation in the present may have its roots in the past but the individual may not be aware of the connection.

During our counselling sessions we may consider your current difficulties in the context of past influences and experiences, exploring your childhood, significant relationships, beliefs and responses. You may be able to recognise more choices available to you in order to make changes now and in the future.

I have gained my counselling experience practicing in local community organisations and I also work closely with the addiction support services in Warwickshire.

I also have a professional and personal interest in addiction, including drugs, alcohol and gambling.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
