About me

I have practised counselling and psychotherapy for 18 years. I use a mixture of approaches in therapy. My role involves two parts; one as an observer, employing skills and 'techniques' to problem-solve; the other is as a participant, where two people engage with each other in the therapy room.

Training, qualifications & experience

Mindfulness meditation.

  • Further training in Psychoanalysis
  • Supervision Diploma
  • Diploma Transactional Analysis
  • Two counselling certificates (level two)

I am a UKCP accredited humanistic psychotherapist. I have been running my own London-based private practice for 15 years working with a wide range of issues. I supervise other therapists. Prior to this I have many years experience working in the public sector; counselling for bereavement in a hospice; as an NHS drug counsellor; as a counsellor in eating disorder/survivor of childhood sexual abuse.

Further information

My approach

Working across several styles, I use a creative and practical approach for meaningful, lasting change in the way you care for yourself, your self-respect and in your personal strengths.

With many issues that involve 'learnt patterns' or 'self-defeating behaviours', sometimes being understood and supported is not enough and we need something more. Challenging the beliefs that underlie problems or 'symptoms' can facilitate effective change.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
