MSc, MBACP Reg - Relationship, Couple & Psychosexual Therapist

About me

As an experienced relationship and psychosexual therapist, I work with individuals and couples on relationship and sexual issues. I believe each relationship is unique, so I take a flexible approach depending on the individual's or couple's needs and objectives.

In addition to my private practice, I work at Tavistock Relationships - the centre of excellence for clinical work, research and training in couple counselling. I also have several years' experience of working in the NHS at St Bartholomew's Hospital in the City of London.

Areas of particular interest include pre-marital counselling, the sexual relationship, pressures of parenthood, infertility, affairs, and long-term relationship challenges. I also have expertise in alleviating depression and anxiety caused or maintained by relationship problems.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
