About me


I am a Person Centred Counsellor currently seeing clients on-line.  When I return to face to face consultations I working from pleasant surroundings in West London.  I see all clients as individuals - not people to put into boxes.  I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their code of best practice known as the Ethical Framework.

I have been seeing clients for many years.   They have come for counselling for a range of reasons and from all walks of life.  Sometimes they know what is ailing them, sometimes they don't.  Talking may help the person to identify their problems and see them in a different light, it may relieve the feelings of depression, anxiety, anger etc.

Counsellors are not there to judge you, but rather to sit with you in a caring environment and endeavour to see your world as you see it.

Because I believe that the relationship between us is so crucial to the work, I offer the initial session on a no cost and no obligation basis.

Training, qualifications & experience

BA (Hons) Counselling, Metanoia Institute

Issues I have worked with include parenting, divorce, life changes such as redundancy, low self esteem, social anxiety, domestic violence, bereavement, life threatening diagnoses, social integration after illness.

I am currently studying to become a Counselling Supervisor and can offer supervision at a reduced rate.

Member organisations

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.
