Before becoming an experienced and professionally qualified psychotherapist, I worked in PR and Communications for many years. It was whilst I was in this industry I became fascinated by the many dynamics and behaviours around me. Why do people behave like they do?
With the encouragement of my own therapist, together with my growing fascination with this discipline, I studied psychotherapy for five years at WPF, one of the foremost institutions for psychodynamic and psychoanalytic learning, and, after completing the postgraduate diploma, decided to leave one world behind to discover a new one.
I spent two years on the Neurological Rehabilitation ward at UCLH (NHS - Queen's Square)
I am a professional member of the BPC (www.bpc.org.uk) and BACP (www.bacp.co.uk) and therefore adheres to their Code of Ethics.
I am an approved provider for Aviva and Vitality Private Health Insurance.

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.
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.

Two types of therapy are offered: Open-Ended, which deals in longstanding and complex issues, and Time-Limited, which deals with immediate issues.
