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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's 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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership
