About me

For experienced support; I provide both couples and one-to-one, adult counselling proven to help with: Relationship problems, anxiety & panic, depression, bereavement, self esteem, addictions, relationships issues - affairs, abuse, anger, separation/divorce.

Accredited, professional, qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist offering support and proven success in improving your enjoyment of life in areas including: Anxiety, Relationship Issues, Depression, Stress, Panic disorder, Feeling sad, Family Issues, Separation and Divorce including affairs and betrayals, Anger Management, Abuse and PTSD, work related issues and Addictions along with other difficulties you maybe facing. I offer one to one therapy and I also work with couples.

Starting therapy can feel daunting. If you would like to discuss how counselling can help you, please give me a call and we can have a confidential chat where I can answer any questions you may have.

I am an Integrative Relational Counsellor based in London. As an integrative relational counsellor I draw on several different therapeutic techniques finding the combination which works best for you as an individual.

Sometimes life throws the unexpected at us, such as the passing of a loved one, diagnosis of illness, divorce or redundancy to name but a few. We can also feel low or depressed for no apparent reason, or perhaps you have lost focus and direction. Most people go through changes at some point in their life and it is reassuring to know that counselling offers the opportunity to work through and manage these changes effectively with the support of a trained therapist.

Counselling provides the opportunity to:

  • Explore your thoughts and feelings
  • Make sense of conflicting emotions and behaviours
  • Explore how you would like your future to look
  • Gain a deeper understanding of yourself and reach your true potential
  • Seek solutions to current life problems
  • Seek positive change to achieve your goals and enhance your life

I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I am an Senior Accredited Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I work with clients who are facing a wide variety of emotional difficulties and issues.

What does Accreditation mean:

BACP accreditation is a quality standard for the experienced practitioner who can demonstrate highest standards of competent and ethical practice.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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)

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).
