Welcome to my website
.... suffering from anxiety or depression?
.... going through a difficult period of change in your life?
.... struggling with a bereavement or loss of some kind?
.... worried about a relationship or work?
Perhaps there's no time when you can stop.., take a breath..., look around.... reflect on and absorb what's going on in your life ...
No space to pause...., gather yourself together in one place...... and try to make sense of things...
Maybe you're soldiering on but, underneath it all, feeling isolated, weary, unhappy or anxious - unsure what to do or who to turn to. Talking with friends and family is often useful and may be all you need to do most of the time, sometimes, though, that might not be easy or possible. And this is when meeting, in confidence, with a psychotherapist or counsellor can be helpful, whether it’s something recent that's upset you or you've been worried or unhappy for some time. Talking with a professional - someone outside your family or social group - can offer a fresh perspective and insight on what is troubling you. It also provides a dedicated time and space where you'll be listened to without judgment, taken seriously and encouraged to pause and reflect on things in more depth; enabling you to focus, re-gain equilibrium and find your own path ahead.
I'm an experienced and qualified counsellor & psychotherapist located near St Paul's in Fleet Street, EC4 in the City of London. Nearest tube stations: St Paul's (Central Line), Blackfriars (District & Circle lines), Temple (District & Circle lines).

I've trained and have extensive experience as a Bereavement Counsellor. This includes work as a bereavement counsellor in an NHS Hospice for over five years. I'm particularly skilled and attuned to working in this field and my experience includes counselling those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a sudden death, a suicide, or the death of a child.

I believe we have far more emotional and psychological resources than we think we do and the experience of feeling listened to and understood by someone else can help us tap into and realise more of our inner strengths.
We're also all unique and shaped by our particular life history. So I tailor how I work in response to the personality and changing needs of each individual. In therapy sessions I'll encourage you to take the space and time to slow down, pause and reflect; to pay more attention to your experience and discover and draw on your own resources.
Providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge:
Counselling & Psychotherapy give you space to gain a deeper and broader understanding of yourself. Becoming more self-aware enables you to tap into your strengths, see your life and relationships more clearly, live more wholeheartedly and more consciously choose the direction to go in.
