About me

I am an Integrative (Existential / Psychodynamic) Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I have been a therapist for 31 years, in private practice for 28 years. I see clients for medium / longer-term work. For the moment all sessions are held via Skype / Zoom.

I have much experience of seeing clients with a range of concerns including: anxiety; loss / sadness; shame; obsessive-compulsive patterns; emotional neglect; sexual abuse; self-esteem; addiction(s); perfectionism; feelings of futility / meaninglessness; questions of ontology / authenticity; depression; difficulties with creativity and work in the arts.

I worked for many years as a counsellor and group facilitator for Alcohol / Addiction Services in London, writing and facilitating group therapy programmes on subjects such as: assertion; self-image; roles; defences; boundaries; relaxation; dependency / co-dependency; change; addictive behaviour; resentment; relapse prevention; anxieties; self-awareness; motivation, etc.

Please note: with regard to alcohol / substance dependency, I work with clients who are currently in recovery and who wish to continue their programme of abstinence.

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
