About me

Ex- Boarders - I have developed an interest in the experience of people who have attended Boarding School. Many do not realise that this is the root of the difficulties that they may be having with relationships and anxieties.

If you are an ex-boarder than we could consider together the impact that this separation from the family may have had on you in your adult life.

We would work through recognising the impact on yourself as a child, to accepting the resulting difficulties which may have been caused by this early separation. And finally changing the patterns of survival which although helpful as a child is not so useful in adult life.

I have developed an interest in working with ex- Boarders . Many people do not realise the impact this early separation has on themselves and their subsequent relationships as adults.

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.
