About me

I am a fully accredited BACP psychotherapist and supervisor and have been working with couples and individuals in West London for over 20 years both privately and for the NHS at St Marys Hospital, Paddington. My offices are at The Portobello Clinic and in Marylebone on Spanish Place.

My aim is to provide my clients with the tools they need to discover their own internal resources and to develop their emotional resilience.

My work with individuals and couples focus on issues concerning relationships sexual problems and issues of fertility IVF and miscarriage and managing general anxiety. I work both short and long term always working with the needs of my clients. I work face to face, by Skype or telephone.

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.
