Hi and welcome to my profile. I am a qualified and Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the BACP, Integrative approach. I am also an experienced and professional Coach and sometimes find the combination (with agreement) of a therapeutic approach coupled with a coaching approach extremely successful in achieving long term results.
Helping people achieve change quickly, is my passion. Because every individual is unique, I have trained in a range of therapeutic approaches so I can tailor my approach to suit you as my client. I specialise in addictions, relationship difficulties, depression and self esteem/confidence issues and work in a warm, non-judgemental and welcoming environment. I work with individuals and couples.
I am Certified with the BPS Level A and B Psychometrics having trained at the University of Cambridge and a Coach and Master Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, personally licensed by Richard Bandler, creator of the field. I work in an individual way with all my clients focusing on life balance issues encompassing career, personal and lifestyle development for individuals, groups and Corporate Organisations.
I am married for the second time round and live in Cambridgeshire with my two children. I relax by swimming each morning and spending time with my family and friends.
I work from my practices in Liverpool Street, London and Cambridgeshire as well as Organisations' offices and off-site events.
If you are looking for a warm and understanding professional to help you improve your life and achieve your goals, contact me via email/ telephone.
I look forward to meeting you.

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.
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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I practice from three different locations:
Cambridgeshire, Peterborough and the City of London
Please contact me directly regarding fees as these are dependent on location.
I do offer discounted fees for people on low incomes and I work with clients covered by private insurance.
Some evening and weekend appointments available.
I work with clients covered by private insurance/EAP ie BUPA, AXA, AVIVA, CIGNA and am Registered as an EAP Professional.
Skype/online or telephone Therapy
I also offer live, safe and confidential Skype/online/telephone therapy. My aim is to be as flexible as possible for my clients and so this option has a number of advantages, such as: allowing access to therapy for those with mobility difficulties and those who are not able and do not have the time to travel to therapy due to work and home commitments. Please email/or call me to discuss this option.
