About me

The heart of my counselling support is person-centred and integrative and I will always follow my clients lead as to their goal for the therapeutic work.  My passion, however, is to support the awakening of the authentic self.  We have all created distractions, defences, masks and personas in our life to cope with past traumas, our fears, our vulnerabilities and our belief system and these will have served us well at one point but if they are left running they can create feelings of anxiety, depression, stagnation and dis-ease amongst other things.  I have witnessed client's lives change dramatically for the better when they have the courage to look at these honestly with support.

I am offering an opportunity to transform your sense of well-being. I believe the challenges and stresses of life, be they physical, emotional, mental or spiritual can be the triggers that give you the chance to look at your life and what you want to change as well as a chance to deepen your relationship with yourself and hence others. 

It is hard to do this process by yourself or with only friends & family for support and the safe, neutral, consistent container provided by the therapeutic space will create the best conditions to support this.  Even though it can be difficult, having the courage to look honestly at yourself can really support positive change in your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified with MA in Applied Psychology (with a spiritual focus) in 1995 and then MA Counselling Psychology in 1997 from the University of Santa Monica. This qualification was eligible for MFCC (Marriage, Family, and Child Counsellor) license in California. I worked in a not-for-profit counselling centre in Manhattan Beach back then.   

For the last 20 years in the UK, I have supported the wellbeing of individuals in various therapeutic roles for a number of mental health charities including crisis support, running therapeutic groups and supporting people with work-related stress. I am registered with BACP and I commit to their ethical standards.

Member organisations

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.

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).
