About me

We all go through rocky patches in our relationships. Sometimes we need outside help to get through these times, especially if they represent a recurring problem. I am specially trained to work with couples and their relationship difficulties and provide a safe and confidential setting to begin to explore some difficult, underlying feelings

Together we would look at your past history and begin to build a picture of how patterns of thinking and behaviour may have developed.

I undergo frequent professional training, have regular supervision and as a member of their organisation, I abide by the code of ethics of the BACP.

I see both couples and individuals in SW London who are experiencing some sort of difficulties with their relationship.

I completed my postgraduate diploma at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships in 2007 and continued working there until recently.

As I believe rapport is essential in establishing a good working relationship, I am happy to offer a 20 minute meeting free of charge for you to see if you would like us to work together. Following this, I would undertake an assessment of your situation at a longer session to ascertain if I can be of help to you.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
