About me

I  am an experienced and fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist.

My areas of speciality are with couples and individuals in relationship and psychosexual work.

I work in Barnes SW13. The location is quiet and tranquil yet close to good transport links. I offer daytime and evening appointments.

Unresolved problems in our relationships lead to great distress, loss of confidence and self esteem and sometimes to depression and psychosomatic illness.  It can become really hard to understand the real reasons for these problems as so many lie in our unconscious but influence our patterns of thinking, emotions,choices and reactions.  No wonder we feel stuck!

It is my role to facilitate greater understanding and perspective; to encourage positive communication. It's about making things more conscious..  It is from here that clients are empowered to make positive changes and engage with life more meaningfully.

This process is not time limited but I discuss progress with clients at regular intervals and terminates when I and the clients feel that is safe and appropriate.

Training, qualifications & experience

I  trained at London Marriage Guidance Council  (now The Tavistock Centre for Couple Therapy) and gained first a diploma in couple counselling and shortly after the diploma in psychosexual therapy.

I worked at London Marriage Guidance Council for 8 years. My years there gave me a broad experience across all groups of the community.

For the last 10 years I have been in private practice and affiliated to Relate.

In addition, my capacity as a Senior Speech Therapist at Great Ormond Street Hospital, included secondment to the Department  of Psychological Medicine and Family Therapy Dept.

I have regular supervision and undertake continuous professional development.

Member organisations


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.

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.
