Welcome to my website

Are you...
... finding it difficult to sort out how you really feel or what you really want?
... suffering from anxiety or depression?
... worried about a relationship or work?
... struggling to come to terms with a loss or bereavement?

Maybe there's just no time in your life when you can stop, take a breath, look around, reflect on and absorb what's going on for you.

No space to make sense of your feelings, thoughts or behaviour... or gather yourself together.

You might be soldiering on but underneath it all feel isolated, unhappy or anxious - not knowing what to do or who to turn to. Talking to friends and family can be very useful and all you need to support you most of the time, but sometimes that can be difficult. It's then that speaking with someone outside your family or social group can bring fresh perspectives and insights. This is when meeting in confidence with a professional psychotherapist or counsellor can help - whether its something recent that has upset you or you've been worrying or unhappy for some time.
I'm an experienced and fully qualified UKCP Registered Psychotherapist & Counsellor based in the Fitzrovia and Bloomsbury area of Central London, WC1.


UKCP Registered

When 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. I abide by the UKCP Code of Ethics. Please go to About me for further details of my training and qualifications.

My Experience
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, relationship issues, family 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, unresolved issues from the past, eating disorders.
I also work with clients referred through the Employment assistance programme (EAP) and private health companies (e.g. AVIVA, Cigna, Pru-Health).

Bereavement Counselling
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.


My Approach

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 tap into and realise more of our inner strengths. This enables us to move forward in our lives.

We are all individuals so its not surprising that life events and experiences can impact us in very different ways. Consequently I tailor the way I work according to the unique personality and changing needs of each person. My approach is warm, relational, collaborative and flexible.
I'll listen and encourage you to look more closely, with interest and compassion, into your experiences present and past; to be curious (not critical) about yourself and discover more about who you are and why you do what you do. This increases your self awareness and thus your self confidence, bringing you a clearer perspective on whatever is troubling you and helping you discover your best way forward.

Providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge:

  • I support you to take space and time to reflect on and experience more fully what's going on for you. Paying closer attention to your experience - physical, mental and emotional - brings you a more integrated sense of yourself as well as insights into aspects of yourself you may be unaware of.

  • Often we don’t realise how profoundly our lives continue to be influenced by our past history and that the source of current difficulties or repetitive patterns (e.g self critical thoughts) may well lie there. Talking and thinking more about your childhood and early years can help you understand yourself and your actions better. It may also uncover the roots of any unhelpful, repetitive patterns that restrict your life now. This provides an opportunity to weaken those patterns and work towards positive change from the stronger foundation of a deeper understanding of who you are.

  • Sharing my reflections, thoughts and interpretations I offer a fresh perspective to help you navigate through difficult times.

  • We look at strategies you can use in everyday life (e.g. to reduce anxiety). I also bring mindfulness techniques into my work.

    Counselling & Psychotherapy give you a space where you can gain a deeper and broader understanding of yourself, enabling 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.

    Being mindful, present and aware deepens our understanding of our self and others, increases our ability to focus as well as making life and relationships more meaningful
