About me

I am a psychotherapist, counsellor and clinical supervisor with over 20 years of practical experience. Until recently I have been the Director and Principal Counsellor of west London's largest counselling service.

I am able to work with a variety of issues, including: depression, loss, bereavement, anxiety, trauma, long-term health conditions, sexuality, difficulties in the workplace, as well as isolation and issues around low self-worth.

I also work with members of the Armed Forces and with the issues that may arise from this profession.

As well as working in private practice, I see both trainee and professional therapists for clinical supervision.

I am committed to providing a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space, which allows clients to explore their feelings and understand themselves better.

I take great pride in being effective in helping clients move forward with their lives.

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 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.

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Coronavirus is dominating headlines globally.

It is an anxiety-provoking and deeply unsettling time for many people.

  • You may be experiencing worry, anxiety and panic or feelings of helplessness;
  • You may also have withdrawn socially and are experiencing difficulties concentration and sleeping;
  • You may feel anger or have become hyper-vigilant about your body or your health in general.

Given the current circumstance it is not unusual to have such feelings, but you may be finding them difficult to deal with and could benefit from some support.

This is something I could help you with.

I am now providing therapy/counselling online and via mobile services, and temporarily suspending face-to-face counselling.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
