About me

I am able to offer sessions on the 'phone, Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp and Zoom.

I see men and women, alone or in couples, who are suffering from all kinds of anxiety and unhappiness, or are not going in the right direction in their lives. You may be  having problems at work, with self-esteem or in your relationship with a partner or friends. I will help you to feel safe and focussed, and maybe to recover from nasty experiences in your early or later life including trauma, loss and bereavement. If you are a couple, I will help you to nurture your relationship by learning how to solve your problems and support each other.

I am an established UKCP and BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist.  Trained and experienced in a number of types of psychotherapy (analytic, humanistic, existential, CBT), I will tailor your therapy to your individual needs.

I will offer you a space to work out why you got to this place and will think with you about solutions to your problems. Together we will identify what might be stopping you from reaching your full potential and what action you need to take to improve your situation.

I offer an initial assessment interview free of charge. It is a chance to talk frankly about what is worrying or upsetting you, discuss how psychotherapy could help, and establish how we might work together.

I have become a counsellor and therapist after a long and productive career in the law, education and business. You should find my approach intelligent and practical.

My consulting room is conveniently situated in W1, close to Regents Park and Great Portland Street Stations.

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.

Accredited register membership
