About me

I am a qualified existential-analytic psychotherapist and have been in practice 10 years. I trained at the University of Roehampton and continue my training through the university ALUMNI association, the Southern Association For Psychotherapy and Counselling, SAFPAC, where I am the associations' Honorary Secretary. I am an accredited member of BACP, senior accredited member of the NCS, and a member of SAFPAC and the UK Balint Society. I continue my professional development with the Society of Analytical Psychology and have also undertaken training in Jungian Studies in the United States. I originally trained as a paramedic and helicopter flight paramedic in the United Kingdom before training as a therapist.

I have published on self help both nationally and internationally. 

(For further information regarding training in existential-analytic psychotherapy and counselling with SAFPAC please visit www.safpac.co.uk).

Patients and clients can bring whatever they may want to their session such as relationship troubles, sexual problems, difficult feelings or compulsions, their dreams, fantasies, anxieties, worries, fears and concerns. I will be present, listen and offer my thoughts and reflections thus  enabling a safe space for deeper exploration and emergence. I work at depth, in the possible unconscious mind,  beginning with sessions from once a week to a greater frequency. 

My first session is an initial appointment to see if both of us can work together. We would initially meet for up to 50 minutes. I work with patients who may wish to sit facing me or may wish to lay on the analytic couch.  

If you feel that I could be of help, please get in touch.

Member organisations

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.
