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)

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.
