About me


I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with over twenty years' experience, with consulting rooms in Camden Town and in the Harley Street district, W1, as well as in Brecon, mid-Wales.

I see individuals and couples who want to make changes in their lives. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space in which to explore difficulties and past patterns, develop new coping strategies and aim for a greater sense of wholeness, fulfilment and inner peace.

HOW I WORK

I believe that, as the client, your needs are at the centre of the process. So together we will identify the form of therapy you feel most comfortable with and the time frame that suits you.


I offer short or long-term counselling and psychotherapy, drawing on various therapeutic approaches such as mindfulness CBT, psychodynamic methods, inner child work and relaxation and self- acceptance skills.

My London consulting rooms are conveniently located in NW1 near to public transport and with free off-street parking. And in Wales I work in a peaceful farmhouse near Brecon.

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.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
