About me

I am an experienced couples counsellor, with 18 years experience, and I also undertake individual work.

My work includes, repeated arguments, affairs, stresses of small children, poor communication, loss of contact with each other,  low self esteem, amongst many other situations.

I provide a safe place, where people can hear each other, and explore all their problems with my intervention where appropriate.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained in Couples Counselling with London Marriage Guidance, University of Surrey and worked for them for 7 years. I am trained in psychodynamic counselling.

I have worked with Relate for the last 12 years and have also had a private practice.

I attended a foundation course for psychosexual problems.

I attend regular study days, belong to a professional reading group, and a professional support group.

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
