Welcome to my website
.... worried about work or a relationship?
.... suffering from depression or anxiety?
.... going through a difficult period of change in your life?
.... struggling with a loss or bereavement?
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...
You might be soldiering on but, underneath it all, feeling isolated, weary, unhappy or anxious - not knowing what to do or who to turn to. It's often useful to talk with friends and family and this might be all you need to do most of the time, but sometimes that may not be easy or possible. 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 unhappy or worried for some time. Talking with a professional - someone outside your family or social group - can bring a fresh perspective and insight to what is troubling you. It gives you a time and space where you'll be listened to without judgment, taken seriously and encouraged to pause and reflect on things in more depth, thus enabling you to focus, re-gain equilibrium, and find your path ahead.
I'm an experienced and qualified psychotherapist with a private practice in central London. I offer psychotherapy & counselling in Fleet Street EC4 in the City of London and in Waterloo SE1 in Southwark.
UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
When looking for a psychotherapist or counsellor it's essential to find someone registered with a professional organisation such as UKCP. Choosing an accredited registered counsellor or psychotherapist will ensure that you work with someone who is fully qualified, supervised and accountable.
I hold an MSc. Integrative Psychotherapy, BSc (Hons) Psychology and am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. I abide by the UKCP Code of Ethics. For further details of my training and qualifications please go to About me .

I've also done additional training 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. Please see Bereavement Counselling for more details
I believe we all have far more emotional and psychological resources than we 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, enabling us to move forward in our lives.
We're all unique and also shaped by our particular life history so I tailor my work to the personality and changing needs of each individual. I'll encourage you to take space to pause and reflect, pay more attention to your experience, discover and draw on your own resources.
Providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge:
Counselling & Psychotherapy provide space for you to 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.
