I currently work both in private practice as well as in the voluntary sector with both individuals, couples and families.
I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), and work within the BACP Framework of Ethics and Practice
I am also a UKRCP (United Kingdom Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) registered independant counsellor.
I hold an Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, as well as a Graduate Certificate in Couples Counselling, and a Certificate in Family
Therapy. My core training is in Psychodynamic counselling. This briefly means that we explore your past to give you insight into your current situation. By uncovering these links with our
past feelings and thoughts we can often understand why we unconsciously feel and think as we do now.
I aim to use the counselling style and technique best suited to each individual client or couple, and my overall approach centres on looking at your past, but links it to the present.
