About me and my therapy practice

Are you unhappy?

Anxious, depressed, afraid, angry?

Does love hurt?

Are you in the middle of the turmoil and uncertainty of life changes?

Are the losses that you've suffered sometimes just too hard to bear?

Wherever you are, whatever your distress, help is at hand. There is comfort. Things can change and get better. Storms pass and wounds heal. Breakdowns can turn into breakthroughs.

I'm interested in you, your difficulties and your life transitions, whatever they are, whether great or small. Maybe you want to change things, or maybe change is thrust upon you by illness, divorce, bereavement, redundancy, trauma, stress or other hardship. But it is from your darkest hours that you can emerge, accept and own your vulnerability, and discover your true strength.

Therapy is a place where you can become who you want to be—who you are meant to be. Where you can learn to live—if not the life you imagined, then the life that has been waiting for you all along.

I am an integrative therapist, which means I don’t subscribe to any one method, dogma or manual of techniques but instead draw on different approaches—especially existential, psychodynamic and relational ideas—to arrive at my own way of working.

I have a special interest in:



avoidant personality, "schizoid" personality




existential issues

family issues, fertility, parenting

life transitions


low self-confidence, low self-esteem

narcissistic personality

men's issues

the “midlife crisis" (at any age)

physical health, illness and disability, including neurological conditions, somatic symptoms and disorders

relationship issues, affairs and betrayals, sex problems, sexuality

relocation /culture shock/acculturation
