I provide a safe space in which to explore anxieties, addictions, relationship problems, panic attacks, and life difficulties and disappointments. Understanding your life more clearly, and in a more balanced way, can have a powerful, healing effect. My approach is supportive, secure, non-judgemental and completely confidential.
I have practice rooms close to Clapham Junction station and Battersea Park.
I hold a PgDip in Psychosynthesis counselling and I am BACP registered and accredited.
I currently offer face to face sessions at my Clapham Junction practice and online video sessions via Zoom, Skype and FaceTime.
Training, qualifications & experience
PgDip Psychosynthesis Counselling
I am experienced in short-term counselling and open-ended long term therapy. I work with generalised anxiety, stress and panic disorders, performance anxiety and creative block. I have extensive experience of working with alcohol, drug, gambling and internet addictions, and with those experiencing the everyday turmoil of life in an increasingly mad world.
I have thirty years experience working within the creative industries and twenty years of working with addictions.
My clients range widely from adolescents suffering the burden of parental expectations to older clients experiencing difficulties accepting life changes and in search of more meaning and peace in their life.
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.

Psychosynthesis is a mind, body and spirit model of psychotherapy that looks at the whole person in therapy. Concerned with the realisation of individual potential, and harmonisation of all elements of the personality, it is unique in that it looks beyond what is being presented by the client to what positive element is trying to emerge.
It was conceived by the Italian psychiatrist Roberto Assagioli (1888 - 1974), who held a unified conception of human development and created an organised system of techniques to be applied in the fields of therapy, education and medicine.
Among the methods used are creative visualisation, free drawing, the training of the will, physical expression, writing, subpersonalities and disidentification, meditation, interpersonal and group work.
