About me and my therapy practice

Hello. I’ve worked for over 25 years in mental health in the NHS and private sectors, with people from diverse backgrounds with many different issues. My style is warm, relational and non-judgmental.

Over time I can help you to develop new insight and understanding of yourself and your relationships. You'll begin to feel freer to make choices about how you interact with the world around you, more comfortable in your own skin.

Working psychodynamically means we can explore, creatively, the difficulties you're facing; look below the surface at patterns that might have helped you cope in the past but are less useful now, whilst recognising that current difficulties really matter.

Sessions are at the same time every week. You may want to come for a short, limited time, or for open-ended therapy, once weekly or more often. There is no agenda and no homework.

I offer an initial consultation of fifty minutes – you can see how you feel with me. If I don't think I'm the best person to work with you, I'll always suggest other options. I care deeply about my work, am in further training in Adult Analysis, and registered with three professional bodies.

The location is less than five minutes walk from West Hampstead tube, Thameslink and Rail Stations (London Overground). The room is comfortable, spacious, and on the ground floor of a residential property, with a discreet entrance.

Fees: I aim to offer affordable therapy. We would discuss the fee in the first meeting, before any commitment is made. Fees average between £65-£85. I charge £70 for the initial consultation.

If you think I may be able to help, please do contact me. If I can’t respond straight away, I’ll get back to you within two days, usually sooner.

I look forward to hearing from you.
