I work with adults who are experiencing emotional or psychological problems. Many of us experience such problems at certain times in our lives, and it can be very helpful to talk to a therapist in a safe and confidential environment about your thoughts, feelings and any specific problems you may be facing.
My experience includes, but is not limited to, the following areas: abuse, adoption, anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, PTSD, sexuality.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, and a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and the British Psychotherapy Foundation. I have experience of working in private practice, within the NHS and in the voluntary sector.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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).
