About me and my therapy practice

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience of working with individuals in many varied settings including the NHS, charities and various London universities. I offer a safe, kind and compassionate space to explore the difficulties you are experiencing. I have worked with many different issues including childhood trauma, family issues and estrangement, anxiety, depression, illness and bereavement , perfectionism, marriage and relationship difficulties (please note I do not offer couples therapy) and academic and work pressures. 

Practice description

First and foremost it can be hugely helpful to have a confidential, safe space to be heard and understood without judgement. We can often repeat negative patterns of thinking and relating, and psychotherapy also has the potential to bring about a greater awareness of these patterns, which in turn can bring new possibilites. Some people find that short-term support (6-12 sessions) can help to bring clarity to a current situation, while others can benefit from longer-term work; what feels right for you is something that we can talk and think about together in the initial appointment. 

My first session

To begin with we would meet for a 1 hour no-obligation initial consultation ideally in person (but Zoom is also possible). This time will be to begin to explore the issues that have brought you to therapy. This is, of course, also an opportunity for you to see whether you feel comfortable with me; and we can also think together as to whether this will be the best kind of support for you.
