Working with my partner/husband (Ph.D behavioural psychology) we work with crisis couples and relationships giving people the tools to make decisions about their relationships. Trained in the USA as a systemic therapist have lived in London since 1999.

The goal of therapy is to help people put together the jigsaw puzzles of their lives so they can understand how they got to where there are and be able to make different choices going forward to work through depression, anxiety, or any other unresolved issues.

Member organisations


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.
