About me

Welcome to my online profile page. I have worked as a Psychotherapist & Counsellor for some thirty years, offering therapy to adult clients and couples who are experiencing emotional and relationship difficulties.

Most people seek therapy at a time of difficulty or even crisis in their personal or professional lives. My therapeutic approach is to offer a safe, supportive, gentle and reflective environment in which to explore the possible underlying causes of the presenting issues and a professional and confidential space in which to express the emotions that arise. Through this therapeutic approach, and over time, clients are enabled to gain a much deeper understanding of themselves and bring clarity in their relationships with others.

I have a particular interest in the possible links between organic illness and emotional distress and clients experiencing low self esteem, anxiety and depression.

I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), a Member of the College of Psychoanalysts - UK, a Member of the British Psychological Society (BPsS) and was awarded Life Membership of the Institute for Psychotherapy and Social Studies (IPSS).

I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The register of the UKCP is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Training, qualifications & experience

After completing a degree in Psychology (1984) I trained at the Institute of Psychotherapy and Social Studies (IPSS) where I gained my Diploma in Psychotherapy (1987)

My career, prior to practicing as a psychotherapist, covered a number of areas. I worked in the industrial sector with a particular interest in stress management and human resources; in the public sector spending a number of years in youth and community work and lectured in Psychology at Middlesex University specialising in Child and Adolescent Development.

In addition to private practice, for ten years I also trained psychotherapists and was a joint Course Director for the London based MA / Diploma Course in Psychotherapy at the Institute of Psychotherapy and Social Studies and was Vice-Chair of the Training Committee. I am currently Director of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the North West London Psychotherapy Centre (NWLPC).
