About me

Counselling in Tunbridge Wells and Harley Street, Central London.

I am an experienced and accomplished counsellor, psychotherapist, supervisor and lecturer. I have been in practice for 18 years as an individual and group therapist in private hospital and private practice settings with specific experience working in mental health with anxiety, depression and addiction.

I work as an integrative therapist who offers empathy and compassion in a non-judgemental environment who works in a user centred way. I am influenced by Humanistic approaches to counselling such as person-centred, T.A and Gestalt. I have additional training to work specifically with Ego-states, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and training to work with OCD using CBT. I am also a qualified Logotherapist.

I am familiar with the 12-steps when working with addiction(s). I believe (and evidence suggests) that the working relationship between the therapist and the client determines how effective and successful the therapy becomes.

I provide counselling for anxiety, work-related stress, stress, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, panic attacks, panic disorder, bullying, bereavement, anger, couples counselling, relationship issues, jealousy, addiction(s), affairs and betrayals, generalised anxiety disorder, post-natal depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, psychosomatic, bi-polar and alcoholism.

I can accept clients who self-fund or via an insurance policy such as Cigna, AXA PPP, Bupa, Aviva, Simply Health, Pruhealth, WPA, Allianz and other insurers. Clients with Bupa cover will normally require a GP referral letter in order for the cover to be granted.

Sessions last for 50 minutes.  The first session explores what the work is and we agree on how we might work together.  Usually we agree when a review session takes place (usually after 4 sessions) which is an honest discussion about how the therapy is going, subsequently, we make an agreement for time-limited, open-ended or long-term therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

Additional experience: Running anxiety groups for Virgin Atlantic's Flying without Fear, receive referrals from BLISS (Premature Baby Charity), have set up voluntary counselling service for sufferers (and family members/carers of) of Chronic Illness.

I have taught CPCAB counselling students at levels 3, 4 & 5 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, with the person-centred approach as its' core model for several years.  I have also taught a Diploma in Supervision (for counsellors, psychotherapists and allied professionals). I have been a reviser for AQA exam papers and was a developer and reviewer of counselling papers with AIM Awards both at levels 2 to level 6.

I hold a Diploma in Supervision and have 10 years experience with Supervisees of varying modalities and experience levels i.e trainee counsellors, established therapists, supervisors, and Psychiatrists that use therapeutic interventions.
