I can help

I am experienced in helping clients who have difficulties with depression, anxiety, loss, self-acceptance, stress, addiction, relationship issues, pre and post divorce issues, cancer and illness recovery, low self-esteem, perfectionism, stage of life difficulties, anger processing, trauma and abuse.

Areas of Experience

I have varied experience working for many years in the NHS delivering short-term, focused therapy. I have also worked as a psychotherapist at University College London in student counselling and have worked with substance abuse in a drugs and alcohol service. I have also worked as a volunteer at Samaritans helping people struggling to cope with day to day life.

Alongside my private practice work, I see couples in London, W1.

Personal approach

My training in both Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy allows flexibility and the opportunity of choice in theoretical approach. I provide an entirely confidential, non-judgmental space to explore your innermost thoughts and feelings in a secure and caring environment. Carefully chosen colleagues supervise my work to ensure you get the best possible care, whilst maintaining your confidentiality.

Our work together will consist primarily of talking and where appropriate (for instance in CBT), I offer the use of creative tools.

“When minds meet, they don’t just exchange facts: they transform,
re-shape them, draw different implications from them,
and engage in new trains of thought.”
