About me

If life feels like a struggle, with painful thoughts and feelings from which you cannot escape or are exhausted fighting back - call me. I can provide you with a calm, peaceful sanctuary away from the stress of life to find yourself & be empowered.

I am an experienced counsellor offering one-to-one sessions for a wide range of emotional, mental health, relationship and spiritual issues.

My area of expertise is working with people in the health professions where stress forms a part of the job. My counselling experience includes doctors, nurses, teachers, clergy, business professionals, musicians and students.

I offer both short-term and long-term counselling depending on your needs and preferences. My style of working is both relational and integrative, two elements which are widely held by experts to be important for effective counselling.

Currently, I am doing all of my counselling work on-line. Additionally, I have private counselling rooms in Regent Street and in Middlesex, close to the borders of Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire, where I also offer outdoor 'walk & talk' counselling in the local countryside.

In addition, I am on the staff of the St Marylebone Healing & Counselling Centre near Baker Street and I am the appointed counsellor to the students at the London School of Theology.

In my capacity as a wellbeing coach I run workshops for national and local healthcare organisations and groups such as the Practitioner Health Programme,  on wellbeing issues such as stress, burnout, resilience and self-care.

I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, a fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and a member of the Christian Medical Fellowship.

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.
