About me

I offer a warm, friendly, private counselling practice for adults over 18 years old. With over 25 years’ experience of working in health and social care, I support people with a wide range of issues from depression, anxiety, panic attacks, to major loss or trauma in their life. I am also experienced in working with clients with work-related stress, in need of emotional support, relationship problems, confidence issues and self-esteem concerns.

Issues can arise in your life in many shapes and forms and can affect you in ways that may feel overwhelming. As a psychodynamic counselling I look at how your inner feelings can impact on you and any connections in your life that might be affecting how you are today. These can be linked to a number of areas from anxiety, stress, relationships, problems at work, or life events that continue to have a significant impact on you. Whatever the reasons may be for you, counselling in a safe environment can help you to explore these concerns further.

As a qualified psychodynamic counsellor, my approach is centred on creating a relational support to help you to find a greater sense of wellbeing. I believe that effective counselling starts with building a safe working therapeutic relationship with the person in front of me. I offer an open, honest and non-judgemental, confidential space. My approach aims to give you the confidence and support to discuss your concerns and work through those issues.

I currently only work with individuals. This is through online or phone consultations.

Member organisations

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.
