About me

If you feel that counselling might be help you to overcome a difficult period in your life, I would be pleased to talk to you.  I work in an non oppressive way to celebrate the uniqueness of each individual.  I use the therapeutic relationship to explore and help clients come to terms with difficulties such as loss, bereavement, feeling stuck in areas of life, feeling unhappy, anxious or depressed.   I am an intergrative psychotherapist and MBACP Accredited and UKRCP registered.  I offer therapy in a choice of warm and comfortable therapy rooms one in Teddington, which is within easy reach of Teddington or Fulwell Stations.   Integrative means working with different aspects of several models of therapy to suit your individual needs.  Another room is in Kingston - a walk away from Kingston Station.  Therapy can be short term, such as one session, six weeks or long term.

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.


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 a practicing social worker of many years working with children and their families, I have found that psychotherapy to be an effective way of enabling people to grow and develop and overcome their difficulties in a safe, secure, non-judgemental and nurturing environment.

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.
