About me


I’m a qualified counsellor, trained to draw on a broad range of theories and approaches and put them together in a way that suits you  (“Integrative” in the jargon).  As a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (www.bacp.co.uk) you can be assured that I have been trained to a recognised standard and that I work to a professional code of conduct.

I'm a little unusual in the counselling world as I have over 25 years' experience working in finance and technology.  I’ve worked at board level in some huge organisations and at the coal face in some tiny ones.  And things didn’t always go to plan.  So I have first hand experience of the stresses that come from high pressured work environments and the challenges that real life can bring outside of the counselling room.

I work from my private consulting rooms in the heart of the City of London (close to Bank Station) and on the outskirts of Sudbury in Suffolk.

I work with individuals and couples aged 18 and over.

There are many reasons why people consider counselling. It might be that you're living with a question that you'd like some help resolving or a feeling that you'd like to understand or change. Whatever your reason, I'm trained to draw on a wide range of psychological theories and approaches to come up with an approach to counselling that suits you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm a qualified integrative counsellor (FdA) holding a BSc (Hons), DipHE and FdA.

While my approach is applicable to a broad range of situations and challenges I have particular experience of working with:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Relationship issues
  • Bereavement and grief
  • Emotional and physical abuse
  • Substance misuse and recovery
  • Gender and sexual identity.

Before my training and experience as a counsellor, I had a successful career in finance and technology. So I've also experienced a lot of the highs and lows that big (and small) business can bring outside the counselling room.
