About me

I am a Masters and BACP accredited Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and an Executive Coach. 

I can help you articulate and close the gap between where you are and where you want to be. We begin sessions with an optional mindfulness 3 minute breathing space to help you quieten your mind.

We can then explore what is limiting you. Bring your fear, panic, sadness, disappointment, lack of meaning, regret,  grief, low self-esteem, loss of direction, relationship struggles, climate distress, your cancer or end of life journey. We will work to move towards the next steps, growth, change, joy and acceptance. They are close by. 

I have a Masters in Psychotherapy and 22 years of experience with adults and adolescents. I have clients across the UK and Europe so work remotely on Zoom or phone, for 6 weeks to 2 years depending on what you need.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I have full BACP accreditation and 22 years of clinical experience. From 2006-2017 I worked in hospital outpatient and inpatient settings running therapy groups in the USA. I also assisted in running their EAP service for individuals. Since returning to the UK (I was trained in Oxford) I have been the group psychotherapist for the Rape Crisis Centre alongside developing a thriving private practice for individual clients. I am particularly interested in clients highly motivated to change. I am also a certified Executive Coach with clients in London, Paris and Berlin. I have a specific interest and skill in conflict resolution within high level management. 

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.

Accredited register membership

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).
