About me


I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Relationship Therapy from Relate, and a Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of Sussex. I have been in private practice for 10 years, & work with clients in London, the UK, & internationally. I also work part-time for Relate, and am listed in the Relate Practitioners Directory. I am on the Psychology Today website, and am fully insured.


In addition to being a qualified & experienced psychotherapist & relationship counsellor, I have worked as a university lecturer, & a professional jazz pianist.


For 25 years I taught philosophy at Richmond, The American International University in London. I was also the house pianist at The Ivy and Le Pont de la Tour, and headlined the Jazz Café with my trio.


I am married with children.

About a session


First sessions are free. Check my avalability and book a session at a time that suits you. Subsequent sessions are £80 per hour for couples, or £60 for individuals.


Sessions normally last one hour, 90 minutes or 2 hours. I work from my private consulting room in Hampton in the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, either in person or by video (FaceTime, Zoom & Skype).


I work daytimes, evenings, & weekends . My earliest session is at 8am, & my last at 8pm. I can see you once a week, or you may prefer to book sessions ad-hoc. You don't need to block-book.


Your first free session is not just information-gathering - we discuss the issues. I believe in fostering a warm relationship with clients to help us examine complex life issues together. I view therapy as a collaborative process.

About relationship counselling


Relationship counselling works!  80% of respondents to a Relate survey said counselling had significantly improved their relationship.


Relationship counselling is for both couples and individuals, whether currently in relationships or not. I welcome clients of all backgrounds,  sexualities, and types of relationship.


Relationship counselling is a specialist form of therapy, so it is best to work with someone who has training in this specific model.


Besides this specialist training I am also trained in psychodynamic, systemic, Transactional Analysis, & CBT approaches to therapy.


i am always happy to discuss the approaches I use, and suggest reading you might find helpful. Sharing concepts and models helps the process.
