Welcome to my website
worried about a relationship or having difficulties at work or college?
... struggling to come to terms with a loss or bereavement?
... suffering from anxiety, panic attacks or depression?
... feeling overwhelmed and finding it hard to sort out how you really feel or what you really want?
Perhaps there's no time when you can stop, take a breath, look around, reflect on or absorb what's going on in your life ...
No space where you can try to make sense of things or gather yourself together in one place...
You may be soldiering on but, underneath it all, feel isolated, unhappy or anxious - unsure what to do or who to turn to.
Talking to friends and family is often very useful and might be all you need most of the time; however sometimes that may be difficult. And it's then that speaking with someone outside your family or social group can bring a fresh perspective and insight to whatever is troubling you, helping you find your balance again. This is when meeting, in confidence, with a professional psychotherapist or counsellor can be helpful - whether its something recent that's upset you or you've been worrying or unhappy for some time.
My psychotherapy/counselling practice is based in the Fitzrovia and Bloomsbury area of Central London, WC1. I'm an experienced UKCP Registered Psychotherapist & Counsellor.
When you're looking for a psychotherapist or counsellor it's essential to find someone qualified and registered with a professional organisation such as UKCP. I hold an MSc. Integrative Psychotherapy and am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and abide by the UKCP Code of Ethics.
Please go to About me for further details of my training and qualifications.
I offer both short-term (usually 6-8 sessions) and long-term, ongoing work. Please see What is Counselling/Psychotherapy? for more information about the difference between short/long term work.
I'm experienced in working with a wide range of concerns, some of which are:
Bereavement & loss, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, trauma (childhood and adult), childhood abuse or neglect, relationship issues, family difficulties ( e.g. relationship problems) , divorce, life transitions (illness, ageing, redundancy, retirement), student concerns (e.g. adjusting to student life, exam stress & worry), work-related issues, sexuality, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, feelings of emptiness or isolation, unresolved issues from the past.
I've received additional training in Bereavement Counselling and have extensive experience and am particularly skilled in this field. My experience includes working with traumatic bereavements such as a suicide or sudden death. Please see Bereavement Counselling for further information.
Private Health Companies
I accept referrals from the Employment assistance programme (EAP).
I'm a registered psychotherapist with the following private health companies: AVIVA, Cigna, Pru-Health .
I believe we all have far more emotional and psychological resources than we actually think we do and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood by another human being can help us recognise, tap into and realise more of our inner strengths, enabling us to move forward in our lives.
We're each of us a unique individual with our own particular life experiences and history so it’s not surprising that life events can impact us in very different ways. Recognising this I tailor my work to the personality and changing needs of each person. My approach is relational, collaborative and flexible.
Providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge:
I view self-awareness as central to well-being . Counselling & Psychotherapy give you a space where you can gain a deeper and broader understanding of yourself. This increase in self-awareness enables you to tap into your strengths, to see your life and relationships more clearly, to live more wholeheartedly and to more consciously choose your path ahead.
