Counselling for personal fulfilment in relationships, work and life.
I work with couples and individuals who are experiencing difficulties with their relationships.
My focus in therapy is on relationships; both the relationship we have with ourselves and how that in turn impacts on relationships we have with others. I works with clients to gain a deeper understanding of their patterns and scripts and to explore the potential for deeper fulfilment and if desired, change. Some of the difficulties I work with include; separation and loss, divorce, bereavement; family related issues; work related problems and low self worth.
I work with couples and family members caring for a loved one suffering with mental health issues.
I have therapy rooms in central Richmond, where I provide a confidential, non-judgemental space to explore with my clients any difficulties that they are facing. I also work with individuals, couples and families at Relate in Richmond and The Wimbledon Guild.
I am a member of BACP and AFT.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
