About me

I have two practices that I work from. One in Harley Street London and one in Cirencester in The Cotswolds.

Both practices work with INDIVIDUALS and COUPLES. Please click on the practice you would like to work with;



Therapy comes in all different shapes and forms and I believe the mode of therapy should fit the client or clients, we are all individuals after all.

I practice Integrative Therapy which means I draw on theory from Psychodynamic, Psychoanalytic and Person Centred schools working with individuals and couples.

I also have an interest in Jungian and Gestalt theories and am continuingly looking at new teachings to find the best way to work with and help my clients. This might be through art, drawing, music or experiential exercise and perhaps mindfulness and meditation.

Sometimes all a client needs is someone just to really listen to them and to accept what they are saying in a non judgemental way, giving them the space to get to know themselves completely.

Therapy is normally conducted with weekly sessions, at a time which is convenient to the client, where they can commit to the number of sessions that are needed to affect change.

Therapy can be short or long term. This is decided after an initial hour-long assessment and when the work commences by looking at and constructing a plan and contract and by continually examining the work as it progresses.

I put you, the client or clients, at the centre of the work and believe that together we can work collaboratively to help you manage your life more happily and successfully.

I work with individuals and couples.

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.
