About me

I am an experienced advanced qualified psychodynamic counsellor . My client base rages from adolescents through to the older adult . My work is client led and I draw upon different modalities to best suit each persons individual journey.

I offer a safe , ethical and professional environment whereby present day life situations can be thought about in relation to their associated anxieties.

I draw upon my continued professional training in , CBT, attachment theory trauma and other models to help explore what as yet may not be understood or known but may be experienced personally as confusing and overwhelming .  With the safety and containment of the counselling space, a way which suits individual needs can start to be thought about and understood.

With a psychodynamic approach, present day life situations and patterns can start to be thought about in relation to how earlier life experiences may have woven an unconscious thread which informs and influences present day action and reactions.

With care and guidance, time, patience and practice i will help to  facilitate fluidity of thought so as a mental thinking space can start to be made, self -awareness can develop and a sense of resilience can be cultivated so as to help meet life’s different challenges .

Training, qualifications & experience

I  gained my Advanced counselling qualification in Psychodynamic Counselling & Psychotherapy; a degree level accredited course ,  I am a registered member of the BACP .

My professional development and training is a priority and on going.

I am trained as a relationship therapist, studied trauma related anxieties and CBT skills.

I have experience of working with a variety of different presentations ,anxiety, depression, self-confidence, isolation, suicidal ideation, relationship difficulties, eating disorders, child hood trauma, sexual assault, bereavement, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and domestic abuse.

I established a holistic private practice over 25 years ago which now offers me a wealth of knowledge and tools to compliment the counselling process.

Member organisations

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.

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.
