About me

I currently have some daytime and evening availability both in Oxford and London with some availability for reduced fee/low cost appointments - please contact for further information and fees. 

I am a senior psychotherapist and counsellor who trained at the University of Roehampton, UK and with the Southern Association For Psychotherapy And Counselling, SAFPAC, (www.safpac.co.uk), where I am the organisations' Honorary Secretary. 

Prior to this, I trained and qualified as a paramedic at the University of Hertfordshire, subsequently working both as an ambulance and helicopter air ambulance flight paramedic in different frontline and trauma services in London and the South East. 

I hold over 11 years clinical experience as a therapist and nearly 20 years clinical experience as a paramedic. 

I am accredited both with the BACP and the NCPS and am also a member of the UK Balint Society. I have continued my training and professional development with SAFPAC, the Society of Analytical Psychology (SAP) London, UK and also with the C.G. Jung Institute of Los Angeles, California, United States.

Counselling/psychotherapy

I offer individual therapy beginning from once to three times a week, depending on your individual need and personal circumstances.

Sessions last 50 minutes. 

I see patients both in London and Oxford.

Please contact me directly to discuss my availability and fees for therapy. 

Mediation

I am also a qualified mediator for individuals/couples who are in conflict, either in the workplace or personally. I offer mediation services which would usually take place over a half day, for which my fee would be £320.

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.

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.

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.
