About me

In this collective dream & nightmare of ours, it is important to hold on to the individual meaning it has for everyone individually...that way lies sanity. Community will then arise out of allowing for difference.

Following on from my working experience over the recent pandemic years, I have decided to provide an almost exclusively online based service, which is delivered and experienced very much 'face-to-face' and 'in person'. 

Online psychotherapy differs from in-the-room psychotherapy, as the 'facing-your-therapist-in-the room-experience' differs from 'lying-on-the-couch-in-the-room- experience'. It is different. Not better. Not worse. Just different.

I am available on Friday afternoons for in-the-room sessions at Number 42, London Bridge. Outdoor therapy sessions can also be arranged. 

I offer individual as well as group and couple/relationship sessions in both English and German - and you will find more details about this on my website.

In my work I integrate 30 years of experience of working in the field. My understanding of the spiritual context of what it means to be human is backed up by my knowledge of a great diversity of traditional therapeutic tools.

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

£40.00 - £100.00

Additional information

I usually charge £100 for a 50 minute session, including our first meeting. Please enquire about concessions as I may have some lower fee spaces available. These are calculated by taking 1/1000th of your annual salary +£25 (for example: annual salary of 25k = £50/session). I also offer package deals for combined individual and group sessions.

If you are on very low, or, indeed, no income, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that Number42 operates a Reduced Fee therapy service for which I am one of the the Lead Practitioners. This service is staffed by carefully selected and supervised trainee therapists and clients usually pay £30 per week (year round) with some room for further negotiations down to a minimum of £15, depending on your financial circumstances. Please contact me for more details.
