MA MBACP (Snr Accred.) Member, FPC and BPC


Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist





Talking confidentially to an experienced counsellor in a safe and supportive setting can help untangle concerns and get clear what matters to you.


Bereavement, redundancy, break-ups and other losses can lead you to take stock. The passage of time may bring unhappiness, dissatisfaction and uncertainty. For some the past has left a painful legacy that is hard to come to terms with on your own. As a parent, step-parent or carer you may be concerned about young, teenage or adult children; you may feel concern about family members who are growing older.


I offer a range of therapeutic help. Six to twelve sessions of counselling can bring insight in relation to a specific issue and see how to manage it better. More deep-seated difficulties take longer to deal with. I offer weekly and in some cases twice-weekly appointments.


We meet initially to consider your individual needs and how they can best be addressed. If I cannot offer appropriate help I may be able to recommend a colleague or specialist agency, including group therapy. Where appropriate I liaise with medical or other professionals.




I originally trained in counselling with the Minster Centre and subsequently with WPF Therapy. I have continued my professional development through courses with, for example, the Tavistock Clinic and the British Psychotherapy Federation.


I have Senior Accredited status as a counsellor/psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am a member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and am registered as a psychodynamic psychotherapist with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC).


My background is in work with adolescents and their families. I have worked with young people and adults experiencing physical and educational as well as emotional and social difficulties in the public and voluntary sectors, including the NHS.


I am committed to developing my sensitivity to all individuals, bearing in mind issues of difference in class, culture, ethnicity, gender, physical constitution and sexual orientation.


I work to the FPC, BACP and BPC codes of ethics.
