About Me

I’m an experienced therapist, trainer and supervisor.  I aim to provide a safe place for you to bring your problems out in the open where they can be explored and made sense of with empathy and compassion.

I tend to focus on:

  • your needs
  • effective communication
  • your relationships (with people, experiences, memories etc)

Through a non-judgemental approach, we can look to build your strengths and resources (within you and around you), resilience and choices for when you face future challenges.

I work with

  • Individuals
  • Couples
  • Polyamory (or Consensual Non-monogamous) networks.

My approach is consensual sex-positive and celebratory of sexual diversity.

I always aim to be trans/non-binary aware and ability-positive.

My key areas of practice and training are:

  • Wellbeing & Loss
  • Sex & Relationships
  • Addictions
  • Harmful Behaviour

(see more under ‘About Therapy’ in the Menu).

These issues (which include shame, anxiety, depression, anger and despair) arise in partner, family, work and social contexts that are unique to each client.


I have worked in private practice for over 14 years, and provide highly regarded training and supervision for other professionals (having also taught on the BACP approved Counselling Course at Wealden College).

Between 1999-2010 I worked for a leading London-based charity, my key roles being Counsellor, (providing individual and group counselling) at a drug & alcohol rehab, Assistant Manager at a Probation Hostel, working with ex-offenders with a history of seriously harmful behaviour, and Manager of an Asylum Seekers’ service.



My primary qualifications are:

MA Counselling (University of London, 2009),

Adv Diploma Forensic Counselling & Psychotherapy (Wealden Institute, 2007)

Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling (University of London, 2003).

Significant CPD includes London Diploma in Psychosexual & Relationship Therapy (LDPRT, 2017-18 working towards Diploma), KUF Personality Disorder/Awareness Training, Camden & Islington NHS, 2010), Risk Matrix 2000 Assessment Training (London Probation, 2009)

I have used paintings by Edvard Munch (1863-1944) because I like the way he expresses the inner world of his subjects.  They are not meant to suggest white, European, heterosexual, binary gendered, monogamous experience as the norm, ideal or goal of therapy.
