I am a fully qualified, Therapist (BA Hons) . I am trained and employed by the charity Relate as a relationship counsellor. I also work as a therapist on Employment Assistant Programmes.
I think that life can change in an instance and it did for me. I discovered therapy later in life, after a professional disaster. I was a 45 year old father and husband, I owned a restaurant in London and I was making a good living. Then, I lost it all, everything, the restaurant, my house and this put great stress on my marriage. Overwhelmed, I went to see a therapist and he really helped me get through this painful time. He had lived and experienced life’s struggles and could understand how difficult it can be when life runs aground- suddenly. I hope that I can offer this bigger perspective as a therapist now.
“I felt you were straight-talking but also very sensitive to our very different personalities and really wanted to help us as much as individuals as well as a couple.”
“it played a valuable part in helping me with the decision and also be a bit better in being more honest with myself going forward”
“Thank you very much for your understanding and expertise over the past few months. We came to you as a last resort as we careered towards an inevitable separation - something we still want to avoid.
Your message is clear: We need to reach an accommodation to create an atmosphere in which both we and the children can thrive”

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.
Accredited register membership

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).
