As a qualified psychodynamic and integrative counsellor and psychotherapist (BACP Registered and Senior Accredited), I offer both brief focused and longer-term counselling and psychotherapy in Leicester (LE1) to individuals and couples+. I am a senior accredited member of, and adhere to, the comprehensive Ethical Framework laid down by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a regulating and professional body. I have full Professional Indemnity insurance cover.
I work with individual adults and adolescents, and with couples+, and cover a range of issues. I have particular expertise in areas of difference and diversity, and the impact of early separation on adult relationships.
I currently work in private practice full time. I have previously provided short-term counselling at the University of Leicester Student Counselling Service, mid-term counselling at the University of Leicester Counselling & Psychotherapy Research Clinic, and long-term therapy at Leicester Counselling Centre.
Workshops & Training
I provide Leicester-based and online workshops and seminars on difference and diversity issues, particularly gender and sexual diversity, for a wide range of people but predominantly for those on counselling and psychotherapy training courses and CPD events.
Continuing Professional Development
I am committed to continuing professional development and presented my research, “a qualitative study of critical learning incidents of recently qualified therapists working with LGBT clients”, at the BACP Research Conference in May 2011. This has subsequently been published. See here for a full list of publications.
