About me

CO-VID 19 UPDATE.....CURRENTLY OFFERING ASSESSMENTS FOR NEW CLIENTS AND ON-GOING SESSIONS VIA ZOOM AND TELEPHONE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH GOVERNMENT INSTRUCTIONS FOR SELF-ISOLATION AND SOCIAL DISTANCING.

Life throws us many challenges, most of which we cope with but others are so distressing or overwhelming that we can't see a way to move forward. We may feel we cannot burden friends or family and so sit with difficult emotions and remain stuck. At these times Psychodynamic Counselling can help you navigate your way through difficult feelings and enable you to gain new insights. It can provide you with a better sense of who you are and how you see your future self.

I will offer you a safe, confidential and accepting place to explore your emotions and experiences. There is no "one size fits all" method of therapy; whether you are going through a bereavement, a work-related problem, relationship issues, anxiety or depression i will look at you as an individual and pay as much attention to your back-story as the present. Inevitably our past experiences shape our current thinking and people can unconsciously repeat what is not repaired. Together we can look at your unique situation and facilitate effective and positive change.

I offer 50 minute sessions on a weekly basis, always at the same time on the same day. I can offer sessions during the day or evening and together we can find a time to suit you.

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.

Accessibility

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.
