About me

As a counsellor/psychotherapist with over thirty years of experience, I am able to offer a strong therapeutic relationship with effective interventions that can provide progress within a time-limited frame. I work with both individuals and couples, and I am based in Central Brixton, close to the tube. I have many years experience of working online with people in UK and overseas - both individuals, couples and groups.
I offer:-
A range of therapeutic models that offers support, challenge, creativity, flexibility and insight
Experience of working with addictions, anxiety, trauma, low-mood & depression, work-related stress, relationship & sexual issues,
Experience of a wide range of patients across the age, gender, sexuality, social class, cultural spectrums
Experience of practising in different settings including private practice, government depts, primary care (NHS), HIV services, Employee Assistance Programmes (EAPs), & addiction agencies.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Gestalt Psychotherapy first at the Pellin Institute and then at the Metanoia Institute, gaining an MSC from Middlesex University in 1998 in Psychotherapy. I have subsequently trained in object-relations, family/systemic constellation and CBT approaches, as well as training as a Couples Therapist.
I have done further training in addictions work, and supervision & consultancy.

I run regular family constellation workshops in London and overseas. I currently provide training in Couples Therapy and Systemic Constellations.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
