About me

I am an experienced couples therapist as well as a one-to-one therapist. I also work as a psychosexual therapist with couples who have sexual issues and with individuals in relation to sexual addiction. My approach is integrative, with a focus on how our difficulties play-out in the present whilst also being rooted in our earlier lives. I also believe much can be achieved by working to address here-and-now responses and patterns of behaviour in order to improve one's relationship. I am a UKCP registered supervisor and recently worked as Clinical Lead for a mental health charity in the borough.

Training, qualifications & experience

My couples training was partly with the Porterbrook Clinic and Relate. I have more than twenty years experience, an MSc (thesis distinction) in Sexual and Relationship Psychotherapy, as well as Postgraduate Diplomas in couples and psychosexual therapy. In addition, my work is informed by my interest in Jungian ideas around individuation. I am also published in the field, in the peer-reviewed journal Sexual and Relationship Therapy, The Journal of Psychotherapy Integration, and I have written a chapter for the 2017 International Handbook for Sexual Addiction.

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.
