About me

I see life as a journey with all its stumbles and frailties and its enormous potential for human growth.  “There is nothing stronger than the human spirit.” However, there are times during life’s journey when confusion and bewilderment, turmoil and upheaval, uncertainty and perplexity can take hold. These are times when counselling can offer hope, be beneficial and lend a helping hand in order to sort through challenging times. My aim is to provide clients with a safe place in order to explore the depths of their difficulties.

As a Counsellor, I am keen to facilitate people, helping them to gain insight into their problems, the patterns that complicate their lives and to provide them with an emotional language in order to handle and enhance their personal growth.

I also have an interest into the many perspectives of Religion, Spirituality and Faith.  As a counsellor I am very open to all faiths. I welcome the opportunity to discuss with and seek what these facets mean to my clients, to search for a wider meaning to life and that of living and experiencing our human existence.

I initially trained in Psychodynamic Counselling in the early 1990’s and have worked in both a voluntary and a paid capacity, contracted to Social Services. I have worked with and helped a diverse range of people.  My life’s journey has also taken me into the field of teaching and training where I have taught counselling skills for a number of years for a local college.  Beyond this, I have worked closely with unemployed people and also training staff within the Health and Social Care sector.

I work within the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am subject to its Professional Conduct Procedure and have regular clinical supervision.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

Further information

What is Psychodynamic Counselling?

Psychodynamic counselling initially evolved from Sigmund Freud’s theories on the unconscious and uses the therapeutic relationship to gain insight into unconscious relationship patterns that have evolved since childhood. Memories and other evidence of early relationships are used to make sense of current situations and concerns.
