We all experience anxiety, stress and difficulties in our relationships at different times in our lives. Having a space to voice and explore these anxieties and feelings could bring clarity and change. I hope to provide a space that feels empathic and safe.
My approach to psychoanalysis is integrative and relational. Working in an embodied way, I value and respect the individual as a whole; body mind and soul.
Respecting you as individual is paramount, keeping in mind differences be it, culture, family, sexuality, beliefs values and everything that makes us human.
I feel the therapeutic relationship is vital for change and transformation. So I seek to create a space where the clients feelings and experiences can be explored through a collaborative process.
As each person and experience is unique, each therapy process is unique. I work in an open, relational way, adapting to the needs of each client. Mindful of culture, sexuality, values and beliefs
The first few sessions would generally be a 'getting to know' each other. Allowing you to get a feel for how I work and looking at areas we may want to focus on initially and how to progress.
'There can be no transforming darkness into light and of apathy into movement without emotion ' - Carl Jung.

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 Scheme
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).
