Are you facing challenges in your life which seem impossible to overcome? Maybe you are struggling with intrusive thoughts, feelings of low self-esteem, despair, guilt or shame? Has a bereavement or traumatic incident left you feeling that it’s hard to cope? Do you have a need to be properly heard, perhaps for the first time?
I am a qualified Psychodynamic counsellor with a warm and compassionate approach. I can provide you with a safe, secure and non-judgemental space where we can try together to make sense of the things that are troubling you. We can explore ways in which you can begin to think differently about the obstacles you face, examining your thoughts and feelings with a view to increasing self-awareness and ultimately gaining greater control over your life.
I prefer to see clients for a regular once-weekly session at a fixed time and location. I work from discreet and comfortable premises and the sessions are confidential. Please contact me for a consultation - you can either send me an email or call me for a chat. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have prior to meeting.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (BACP Accredited Course)
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.
