About me

All of us at times can find we are struggling or feeling unhappy ……with ourselves, others or a specific situation …..and are wanting or needing things to change. And whether it is something that is going on now or is rooted in the past and early experiences, counselling and therapy can help.

I have over twenty years experience working with individuals and couples. My method of working is primarily psychodynamic, which means exploring the past to make sense of present feelings and behaviour but I also draw from a range of therapeutic approaches that will best suit you and your specific needs.

Counselling and therapy can be life changing and an important aspect of my work is in providing a genuinely warm and supportive space where we can confidentially explore the difficult and sometimes painful issues that are affecting your everyday life .......with the aim for both of us being to enlighten and empower you so that you can make the changes you want to make to go forward with confidence.

I work with many kinds of difficulties, with particular interest in:

  • relationships and family issues
  • depression
  • anxiety
  • stress
  • childhood issues
  • building self-esteem and confidence
  • post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • anger
  • chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS / ME)
  • loss and bereavement
  • personal change and growth
  • living with someone with a personality disorder

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.
