I offer a specialised Marriage and Relationship Counselling service to both couples and individuals. If your relationship is in distress or even crisis, there are steps you can take to massively improve things for you and your partner in couples counselling (see some of the benefits you can expect on the video).
You'll be helped to explore the personal and relationships issues you are facing, helping you gain a much better understanding of what is causing the distress, and what you can practically do to transform your relationship for the better.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a specialist Marriage and Relationship Counsellor, with an Advanced Diploma in Humanistic and Integrative Counselling from CPPD, and a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from Hertfordshire University. I also hold a master's in Occupational Psychology, and first degrees in Psychology and Business. I'm a mindfulness trainer too and a registered member of the BACP.
Before turning to counselling, I worked as a senior manager within large organisations.
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.
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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
Please note that my approach is essentially integrative, so I often combine different approaches in the interests of making couples counselling as effective as possible.
When I work
I work with clients in the daytime and evenings.
Please enquire about the popular 8-week programme for relationship transformation, which takes a structured approach to in-depth couples work to permanently change things for the better.
