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)

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.

Accredited register membership
