I have worked for many years at the prestigious Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships as a Psychosexual and Relationship Psychotherapist, helping couples to improve their relational and sexual problems. I also work on Harley street helping couples whose relationships have suffered as a result of addiction issues. Each client receives a bespoke treatment which is based around a focus on past influences but equally involves working with the “here and now” dynamics of the therapy room. The treatment programme might include a sexual behavioural programme or use of cognitive techniques, as appropriate. Anybody who has formed an adult attachment and would like to improve the quality of this attachment would benefit from this work, including individuals who would like to understand more fully their role within relationships. My clients regularly experience significant levels of positive change and take away from the experience a deeper and more helpful understanding of themselves and of their partner.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a MSc (Masters) in Psychosexual and Relationship therapy and a Post graduate Diploma in Couple and Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am an accredited member of BACP and COSRT.
For the last 8 years I have been at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships working as a Clinician and as an Assessor. I also work part-time for a Harley Street Sex Addiction practice, Innisfreetherapy and have a private practice in north west London. In the past I was in Personnel and Recruitment.
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.
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.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
