About me

I work with individual clients and couples with various kinds of emotional and psychological distress and unhappiness.  I offer a safe and supportive environment in order to talk and offer short, medium and longer term therapy or analysis.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated from Metanoia Institute with a Diploma in Counselling in 1995.  I also hold a diploma in clinical supervision and supervise counsellors/psychotherapists. Since then I have been practicing in a number of settings.  These include mental health charities, HIV/AIDS, young people, and suicide organisations. I have experience of working in the NHS (St Thomas' Hospital), employee assistance programmes, and in private practice.

I am an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist, hold a diploma in clinical supervision and apart from engaging in numerous CPD activities since graduating am currently engaged in a lacanian psychoanalytic training at the Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research (CFAR).

I am currently a trustee at the Philadelphia Association in London (A psychotherapy training organisation with therapeutic community houses)

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.

BACP

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.
