About Me

I am a Doctor of Existential Psychotherapy. I'm a family man with a son and three daughters of whom I'm very proud. I love animals, walking in nature and cycling. I also teach Judo, write poetry and love to sing.

I love my work as a psychotherapist. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is paramount and the way I work is to first develop this trust with my clients. Through the difficulties and anxieties of life, human beings have an unlimited capacity to grow and it has been my privilege to witness this.

I worked for more than thirty years with families who were either traumatised or facing extreme crisis. For over eight years I practiced at an NHS surgery in North London and supervised trainee students in counselling. I also worked for about a year as a volunteer counsellor with the Specialist Team at the British Refugee Council. I have experience working with cultural diversity and in gender issues, relationships and sexuality. I'm engaged in ongoing research, which informs and updates my clinical practice. I supervise individual and group counsellors and teach phenomenology as a psychotherapeutic discipline.

Outside of my therapeutic practice, I chair a charity working for distressed children and families worldwide.

I am a member of the Society of Existential Analysis. I am also a registered member of UKCP and BACP whose ethical guidelines and code of practice I follow.
