About me

I am a fully qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychoanalytic psychotherapist, with BACP, BPC, UKCP and BAPPS accreditation and over 20 years of experience, during which I have worked with people from a wide variety of different backgrounds. I work from my consulting room in Uxbridge, which is easily accessible by bus or tube, and is a 10 minute walk from the town centre. There is ample parking available in my road for a very small charge. I am available Monday to Friday between the hours of 8am and 6 pm (last appointment time). My consulting room is ground floor, but there are a few steps to my front door. In some circumstances, I offer online and telephone sessions. I am also a qualified supervisor.

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.
