About me

Relationships can be challenging and go through testing times. If communication breaks down, couples can be left confused and stuck. Partners can often feel lost and alone or angry and overwhelmed; this can lead to depression and anxiety.

Whether you are looking to develop, maintain, repair or perhaps end your relationship, psychotherapy provides a safe, non-judgemental space in which couples and individuals can explore their relationships.

By looking at what lies behind the relationship, paying attention to the past and the present, it is possible to gain a better understanding of the existing dynamic and identify recurring patterns in order to bring about change.

I trained at Tavistock Relationships and I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their code of ethics. I work as a psychodynamic psychotherapist in private practice with couples and individuals, providing both long-term and short-term once-weekly therapy sessions. My work is clinically supervised and confidential.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for an initial session. An initial meeting gives us an opportunity to meet without commitment other than the fee for the consultation.

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.

Wheelchair user access

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.
