About me and my therapy practice

My integrative training helps me adapt the way I work so that together we can develop the most helpful approach to meet your goals. I have more than 10 years' experience helping people find a better way forward, so I'm used to addressing a range of issues whether you:

- feel stuck

- think your past might be affecting you in the present

- want to develop coping strategies for specific difficulties.

I'm a registered provider of counselling and psychotherapy for Aviva, Pru Health, WPA, Cigna.

I offer therapy in private practice in Wimbledon or as part of a service of experienced, qualified therapists in Richmond.

Background/Work Experience

I've worked in the NHS leading teams of Primary Care counsellors and supervising their work. I have therapy experience in the charity and commercial sectors (from offering long term therapy in ngos, to working at The Priory, to supporting stressed City workers seeking swift resolutions to their issues). I'm able to draw on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), psychodynamic and solution-focused approaches. I also believe my varied career ranging from city investment analyst to a career in international development helps me attune to people from many walks of life.
