About me

My name is Ikuko and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) as a qualified psychotherapist / counsellor specialised in couple and family work. I have a private practice in Sidcup, DA15.

I have a Master of Arts degree in Relationship Therapy from the Relate Institute and have previously worked for Relate, the ‘Relationship People’.

My interest lies in how people form, maintain, separate, connections and intimacy with others. The work is often vibrant, immediate and full of unexpected surprises, but I love the challenge and the humour, believe it or not!

I first became interested in counselling while I was volunteering at Home-Start, where they offered a counselling skills course. Ever since I have been continuing in professional and personal development.
