About me

I will help you gain insight into whatever is troubling you, helping you to understand yourself better and see yourself from a fresh perspective.  This can bring a sense of release as new ways of understanding yourself come into view, giving you space to think differently and make choices.

I offer regular, weekly psychodynamic counselling with adults, on a long-term basis or a shorter-term basis, working face-to-face, online or by phone.

I offer an initial session for 50 minutes so you can decide if working with me feels right for you. I charge a fixed fee of £46 for this session.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained for over 5 years, gaining a BACP-accredited qualification in psychodynamic counselling after seeing the benefits of this approach during years of offering pastoral care.

My counselling work has included: anxiety including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), relationship issues, feeling sad, trauma, bereavement, low self-confidence, social anxiety, emotional and physical abuse, depression, stress, life crises, loneliness, feeling stuck, attachment disorder, bullying, feeling trapped, low self-esteem, low self-compassion, indecision, issues relating to childhood and growing up, family issues, anxiety, issues relating to faith (including changes, related relationship issues and loss of faith),  spirituality, and career and work-related issues such as change of direction, work-related stress, redundancy and retirement.

My experience includes working in private practice, a counselling agency, a GP surgery, clergy counselling services and a further education college.

I am a personal tutor for diploma students on a BACP-accredited psychodynamic training.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC)

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.
