About me

Have you had experience of therapy before which was partly helpful but not enough?  I offer an approach which is informed by and builds on the pioneering work of the early names in this field and which also incorporates new and emerging forms of therapy.  My approach is based not on management of symptoms but on deep and lasting recovery.

Whatever you're struggling with, I invite you to make an appointment with me to explore your situation further.  I work with a wide range of issues including: trauma, addictions, stress, depression, bereavement, phobias, relationship problems, and illness, including illness not responding to medical interventions.

I work as an integrative counsellor / therapist. This means that rather than offering a one-size-fits-all approach, I am able to draw on a number of frameworks (including psychodynamic, relational, body-orientated and trauma and recovery informed). I can therefore tailor the therapy to fit your needs, time-scale and personality.  I have a particular interest in trauma, addictions, and spirituality, although I work with all areas.

My practice

Prior and subsequent to training in integrative counselling / psychotherapy at the Minster Centre, London, I trained in a number of specific therapeutic techniques, including approaches which fit under the umbrella terms “Energy Psychotherapy” & “Energy Psychology”.  For more details see my qualifications below. I am continually on the look-out for ways of deepening and refining my practice in service to my clients.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Integrative Counselling (The Minster Centre, London)

Certificate in Energy Psychotherapy: energy psychology for psychotherapists and other mental health professionals (Converging Streams, London)

Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT) Practitioner, Europe

Acupoint tapping (most common brand name: "Emotional Freedom Techniques" or EFT), Psychoanalytic Energy Psychotherapy (PEP), Blue Diamond healing, Radomski's Ask & Receive, Healing from the Body Level Up (HBLU) and Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT).


Whilst training as a therapist I worked for mental health charities and in drug and alcohol recovery settings.  I now work with a broad range of general adult presentations: anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, trauma and health problems, including health problems not responding to medical interventions. Working in private practice in London has included working with the particular nature of trauma presentations localised in our capital city, including trauma suffered on account of terrorism, murder, rape and sexual assault.  My approach is based not on management of symptoms but on deep and lasting recovery.

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.
