About me

The only way to ensure long term gains, to my mind, is to get to the heart of the matter. That's my aim, whether you are looking to address some specific issue or have a more general need to understand yourself better.  I work in depth, drawing on attachment theory as well as psychoanalysis.

You can find out more on my website. Meanwhile, if you get in touch, I aim to respond within one working day. Starting psychotherapy can feel strange and I try to make it as comfortable as possible.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (through the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis) and ascribe to its Code of Ethics. I’m a member of the Bowlby Centre, where I teach psychotherapy students and am currently Chair of the Board. I'm also involved with the Relational School and the Association for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the N.H.S.

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.

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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.
