The issues I can help to address include:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Loss
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks
  • Abuse
  • Trauma
  • Issues with identity, sexuality and gender
  • Boarding school issues
  • Difficulties with anger
  • Low self esteem or low self confidence
  • A feeling that life is empty or meaningless
  • Worries about taking decisions
  • Relationship issues
  • Work related problems

I have a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (awarded by Westminster Pastoral Foundation, WPF) and a Foundation Degree in Psychodynamic Counselling (awarded by the University of the West of England, UWE). Following my professional qualification, I completed the Gloucestershire Counselling Service Associate Programme to gain an Associate Award in Psychodynamic Counselling.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and Registrant of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). I adhere to both organisations' Codes of Ethics.
