About me

I am a psychotherapist, counsellor and clinical supervisor with over 20 years of practical experience.

From 2010 to 2019 I was 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.

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.
