I'm an experienced and qualified psychodynamic counsellor, psychotherapist and course tutor, that works with a full range of themes; from aggression, anxiety and bereavement to addiction, abuse and trauma.

I began working as a counsellor in 2000. My experience is based on working with a diverse clientele group in various settings, including the NHS and primary schools providing play therapy. I've worked extensively with men and women who've experienced trauma, including sexual assault and childhood sexual abuse. I also have specialist knowledge of parenting difficulties including those related to parenting twins and multiples.

I am member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a widely known and respected professional body. I adhere to both the BPC and BACP's strict code of ethics, standards of practice and confidentiality guidelines.


I am also a registered member of the United Kingdom Register of Counsellors/Psychotherapists (UKRCP) and have a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Psychology degree from the University of Oregon.


What does psychodynamic mean?


Psychodynamic counselling is an active form of therapy without being directive. It looks at relationship dynamics, past experiences, perceptions and unconscious actions to determine the source of emotional turmoil. Self awareness occurs by exploring both known and unknown aspects of your experiences in a safe, non-judgmental environment. When self awareness grows, patterns that block potential are identified, understood and addressed, often leading to resolution or acceptance.
