About me

I am a senior couple and individual counsellor and psychotherapist, trained at the Tavistock Relationships, London, and WPF Therapy, Kensington. I offer time-limited and longer term counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and confidential setting.

Sometimes couples and individuals come when they are in crisis and can’t see a way forward, whether it is communication problems, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, bereavement, money issues, affairs and betrayals, family issues, difficulties in their sexual relationship, the question of whether to have a baby, infertility or miscarriage, or wanting to think about separation and divorce. One partner may want more emotional connection than the other. For some it is a question of getting help and support in order to resolve differences before they become a major problem and in order to strengthen their relationship.

Far from being a sign of failure, accessing support at times of stress and during difficult life transitions is a positive and helpful course of action.

You are welcome to call me on 07832 271 289 (mobile) to make an appointment. Alternatively, you can email me. Please provide a telephone number and let me know when is a good time to call you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified as a couple therapist at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships and as an individual psychodynamic psychotherapist at WPF Therapy Kensington, followed by an MA in Psychoanalytic Studies (WPF and University of Roehampton). I also qualified as a couple psychoanalytic psychotherapist at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships.

I was until recently a faculty staff member of The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in London, and head of Psychoanalytic Training, where I continue to work with couples, supervise and teach.

I am a full member of The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), The British Society of Couple Psychotherapists and Counsellors (B.S.C.P.C.), The Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).

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.
