MA, Relationship Counsellor and Sex Therapist

About me

I have over twenty years experience and specialise in working with couples and individuals who present with relationship issues and sexual difficulties. I was a Relate licensed counsellor for many years and until recently I was a trainer and supervisor at Tavistock Relationships. I am specifically trained to work with couples and individuals on all aspects of their relationships.

I see a wide range of clients from all walks of life, with a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and I work with straight and gay couples and non-binary individuals.

Training, qualifications & experience

Diploma in Psychodynamic Marital and Couple Counselling - London Marriage Guidance Council/Roehampton Institute
Diploma in Psychosexual Marital and Couple Counselling - London Marriage Guidance Council
MA in Psychoanalytic Studies - Goldsmiths College University of London
Certificate in Supervision - Society of Analytical Psychology

As a faculty staff member at the Tavistock Relationships I devised and ran the MSc in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy and the Certificate in Psychosexual Studies. Until recently I continued to teach and supervise at Tavistock Relationships on a variety of courses. I was also a Relate Licensed Counsellor for ten years. I have lectured and taught in Stockholm and Istanbul as well as for various organisations in this country including COSRT, BUPA, The Royal Shakespeare Company and The Metropolitan Police. In my private practice I see clients (couples and individuals) and I offer supervision to psychodynamic counsellors and sex therapists.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP

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.

COSRT

College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT)

COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.

All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am specifically trained to work with couples and individuals where the relationship (or lack of it) is part of the focus of the work. When this is the case other factors such as depression, stress, addictions, fertility and illness are often contributory factors which I work with.

I work Monday to Thursday.  Hours from 8am to 8 pm depending on day.  I do not offer weekend sessions.

Further information

In the first instance I usually suggest that we meet (all three of us if it is a couple issue) just for one initial assessment session.  This gives you the opportunity to meet me and ask any questions you may have and means I can get a better idea of the situation.  Then together we can discuss if it would be appropriate to have some more sessions or if it would be more helpful to look at other options.  For the moment all sessions are online via Zoom.  Currently I am unable to space sessions out or ventilate the room sufficiently in order to offer face to face sessions.   However, I do plan to return to some face to face work when possible.  For this reason it might be helpful for you to know that my office is about a ten minute walk from Clapham Common station.  I see clients on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Depending on which day you attend the earliest session is at 8am and the latest begins at 7.45pm.  Please bear in mind there is a heavy demand for sessions, and I may not be able to see you immediately.    A session lasts for 50mins and my usual fee is £70 during the day (before 5.15) and £80 for an evening session (5.15 onwards). Payment is made at the end of the session via bank transfer or (if face to face) by cash or cheque.

Here are some details about my training and experience:  Following a period as a telephone counsellor with Childline I completed a Foundation Course and three year Postgraduate Diploma training with London Marriage Guidance, now part of Tavistock Relationships.   I then completed a further advanced training as a psychosexual therapist.  My initial training was in the psychodynamic model but I also use cognitive behavioural and systems approaches where appropriate.  I have an MA in Psychoanalytic Studies and am accredited with BACP and COSRT as well as  being UKCP registered.

I have been working as a counsellor for over twenty five years now seeing couples and individuals at all stages of their relationships.  I set up the MSc in Psychosexual Therapy at  Tavistock Relationships where until recently I continued to teach and supervise.  I  have also run a great deal of training over the years for various other organisations including Relate, The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists, BUPA, The Metropolitan Police and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
