I am an experienced therapist who is registered and accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This means that I abide by the BACP ethical framework for good practice in counselling.
I completed my professional training with the Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF) and have been qualified for over 10 years. I have continued to develop my skill base by attending many other training courses which enables me to tailor my services to meet the needs of my individual clients. I am also a qualified supervisor who provides supervision to individual counsellors and to groups of qualified counsellors/psychotherapists across various modalities.
My core training was in psychodynamic counselling. Briefly explained the psychodynamic approach is used to help us to make sense of what is happening now by gaining insight and a better understanding of how past difficult life experiences shape who we are as adults and how these past experiences impact on current relationships. This can be a painful process at times but can also bring great relief and positive change, as it can enable us to make more helpful choices and decisions for the future. I firmly believe it is a worthwhile investment. See Services page for information about other approaches I use in my work.
