I am a very experienced, qualified and Senior BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) Accredited Couple and Individual Therapist and a COSRT Accredited (Council of Sexual and Relationship Therapists) Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist. I hold an MSc in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy from the respected TCCR (Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships).
Appointments are daytime and evening, my last being 8.45pm. I now work from Great Sampford near Saffron Walden in Essex. I have had a Private Practice in EC2, worked in the NHS and Private Healthcare.
I am primarily an Integrative Counsellor, responding to my client(s) as unique individuals. The issues clients bring can be historic or current but primarily this is a working relationship. As a working relationship I encourage clients to come for an initial session to explore whether it feels the right place for them, that they feel comfortable and understood and we can work together. Clients are free to ask all they need that will help that decision. It can seem a strange new experience and your ability to choose the right Counsellor for you is vital. You can of course take some time to make that decision, no pressure will be made to make your next appointment.
I am primarily a couple and relationship specialist (including intimacy and sexual issues) but also work with many EAP's (Company Employee Assistance Programmes) and I work with a fairly equal proportion of men, women and couples. I work short and long term. I am a BUPA, Aviva and Simply Health approved practioner and other Healthcare Providers via Psychiatric referral. I am an Accredited Member of COSRT and a Senior Accredited BACP Member.
