About me

Hello and a warm welcome to my profile. I would like to offer a short introduction about myself and my counselling work so that you may find your search more informing.

I am a registered member of the BACP, currently working with the NHS (Talking Therapies) as well as in private practice. My private practice is called 'Talk and Survive'. This name is very important to me as I genuinely believe that talking is a way of surviving through the hardship and difficulties that we face in life. Sometimes, talking can also quite literally help individuals 'survive' from taking their own lives. Hence, having a strong and meaningful name for my private practice means a lot to me as I hope my work and service will reflect this.

I love being a therapist and genuinely enjoy working with all people. I believe it takes a lot of guts and courage to seek therapy. It can be difficult to talk about the painful events in our lives and to revisit dark moments. I hope I can be there to help you through the journey of processing these difficulties.

How I work?

I have been trained as an integrative practitioner  which means I draw upon different elements of specific theory in counselling and psychotherapy.

My passion is in psychoanalysis and I use some psychoanalytic concepts in my therapeutic work. I work using a relational psychoanalytic approach; looking at the early relational dynamics between child and parents, attachment styles, the developmental history of an individual and working with the concept of the unconscious mind. Psychoanalysis is known as the ‘talking cure’- I believe this helps clients have a deeper understanding of how their past shapes their present life.

I also have a keen interest in working with bereaved clients and those who have anxieties about death. I developed this interest after my time working in a hospice with palliative patients. I especially like to use the existential counselling model when working with this client group as this model provides an opportunity for deep and reflective exploration into the concept of death and beliefs in the afterlife. Many clients find the existential model to be profound and meaningful when working through matters such as anxiety and loneliness. I also work briefly using CBT techniques.

I ask clients in the initial consultation session if they have a preferred model of working to see if I am able to offer this. If I do not work within a specific model I am happy to refer clients to colleagues who will be better suited.

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.
