About me and my therapy practice

I work as part of a counselling group practice in a quiet, confidential but professional environment. I am a BACP registered and accredited counsellor with 14 years experience and have worked in voluntary organisations, primary care and in private practice.  I undertook a 5 year BACP accredited training and I offer individual counselling to adults of all ages.  I welcome working with diversity in terms of age, cultural background, sexuality and gender identity. 

Qualifications: Person Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (2020). Advanced Dip in Psychodynamic counselling (2014)   WPF Dip in Psychodynamic counselling (2011). Association of Independent Psychotherapists (2010).  Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling (2009).  Bereavement training (2008).

Practice description

My aim is to involve myself in a persons' efforts to make sense of the thoughts, feelings or actions that are troubling them and to allow quiet space for thought and reflection without judgment. The insights that come to light in our conversations are the result of our joint endeavours to find meaning and understanding in the face of confusion and distress. 

Areas of particular interest:                                                                                I worked for 10 years as a bereavement counsellor and continue to develop my interest in the associated difficulties with grief and loss.                                                                                                                Also in the area of coercive control and working with boundaries around the self, including the problem of being either too much intruded on or too distant in relationships.
