About me

A qualified and experienced counsellor working with couples, groups and individuals.

April & May - taking on new couples at a reduced rate (£25 for 75 minutes) in Staines.

April and May running a small group for relationship issues at Chandlery, near Waterloo.

I offer a free initial 30 minute Skype consultation to discuss your expectations of therapy and determine whether we are a good fit.

I have experience in working with anxiety, depression, anger management, eating disorders, addictions, relationship issues, sexual assault, and work related stress issues.

With couples I deal with communication styles, relational and attachment patterns and I am particularly interested in the complex issues surrounding infidelity and betrayal.

I am a registered member of BACP and I abide by their code of ethics.

I believe the broader purpose of therapy is to develop and expand our capacities for intimacy, awareness and spontaneity and I will work together with you to create a clear and non-judgmental working relationship in which you can explore whatever issues you bring.

Personal transformation often comes from a mixture of three therapeutic elements:

  • understanding your past in a new way;
  • new experiences (in the therapy room as well as outside);
  • and authenticity in the therapeutic relationship.


My role is to help you find a balance of these three elements which will work best for you.

Research has shown that therapy is most effective when the client and therapist establish and agree on goals together – so I will work with you to understand your therapeutic goals - whether that’s behavioural change or gaining more understanding of the conscious and unconscious beliefs you hold.

My background is in the arts and publishing and I enjoy music and travelling in my spare time.

If you would like to see me, please send me an email or call me to schedule the initial consultation.

My fee for individual work is £50 per each 50 minute session, and I see clients weekly. The fee for couples work is £70 for a 70 minute session.
