About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced and accredited counsellor, psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. My approach is Integrative and I work with adults, couples and young people.

Whatever's on your mind, talking and being heard can help. I offer a safe, confidential space where you can do this at a pace that suits you. You may be feeling stuck and confused, overwhelmed by your emotions, anxious or depressed. You may be struggling to cope with change or just feel that something's not right. Alternatively you may be interested in therapy as a form of personal development.

My role is to help you to explore your feelings and thoughts in way that promotes insight and self-awareness, and to support you as you work towards greater clarity and understanding.

Talking about how you feel and being understood is at the heart of therapy. Beyond this, it may be helpful to consider unhelpful life patterns and gain new insight into habitual ways of thinking and behaving. We can also explore fresh perspectives, different possibilities and strategies for change and growth. Working together we can explore where you are now, where you would like to be and how you can work towards getting there.

Contact me by email or phone and we will arrange an initial session. My main practice is in north London, five minutes from Archway, but I am currently working online and face-to-face.

Practice description

I have been in private practice for 12 years. I work with adults, couples and young people. 

I offer open ended and time-limited therapy - this is something we can discuss when we meet.

I am also a qualified clinical supervisor.

Before qualifying as a therapist I worked for 20 years as a journalist, writer and editor and I bring this broader experience with me.

My first session

It can be hard to take the first step towards therapy. I usually suggest that we meet for an assessment session and go from there. This gives you a chance to find out whether you think you will feel comfortable working with me and gives me a chance to get an overview of what's bringing you to therapy and what you hope to get from it.
