About me

I am an experienced couples counsellor and psychosexual therapist working with individuals and couples on a wide range of issues. Relationships can be a struggle at times and many people find that talking in confidence to an experienced relationship therapist enables them to explore their difficulties and find new and helpful ways forward, whether you find yourself at a crisis point or simply want to fine tune the relationship. I am qualified as a sex addiction specialist, working with addicts on recovery, partners or the affected couple to help rebuild a damaged relationship.


The sort of difficulties that clients bring, whether on their own or as a couple, are:
* Relationship and intimacy problems
* Separation and divorce
* Psychosexual difficulties
* Sex, love or porn addiction and other compulsive sexual behaviours.
* Bereavement, loss and grief
* Depression, stress and anxiety
* Unhappy with life or career- seeking greater contentment and control of your life
* Feelings of anger, mood swings
* Low self esteem and body image problems

I can work on an open ended basis, but can also work within a fixed number of sessions or longer term.
I am based at my private practice in Ewell, Surrey (close to Epsom), within close access to train, bus and main road links. Disabled access and free parking outside.

During the COVID19 pandemic I am offering online via Skype, Zoom or FaceTime, or telephone counselling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked with individuals since 1998 and with couples since 2006.

I previously worked as a couples counsellor and sex therapist for Relate, but now work only in private practice. Over the last 20+ years, I have worked with a wide range of clients and their difficulties, both privately, in the NHS and within a variety of specialist agencies, charitable organisations and consultancies. 

I have obtained a:
* Certificate in Treating Sexual Addictiion ( through ATSAC, the UK Association for the  Treatment Sexual Addiction and Compulsivity, of which I am also a member)
* Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling
* Relate Certificate in Couple Counselling
* Post Graduate Diploma in Psychosexual and Relational Therapy
* BTEC in Counselling Skills

*Trained with StopSO on working with sex offenders

*Member of COSRT, BACP and ATSAC

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Further information

I understand that making the decision to seek help is a big step to take. Coming to see a counsellor and talk about very personal matters can feel daunting and embarrassing, but I am here to help and not to judge. I will treat you with discretion, respect and confidentiality. Details about you and what is discussed remain strictly confidential. I follow the BACP and COSRT codes of conduct and ethics.

Accessibility

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.

Wheelchair user access

Can park outside. No steps or stairs.

Availability

I work some weekday evenings, and Saturday mornings. I can also offer very early morning appointments too.
