About me and my therapy practice

Are you struggling, overwhelmed? Experienced, qualified psychotherapist offers a safe, supportive space for adults and young people. Apart from a busy private practice, I work as part of the Trauma Unit at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in London and at an agency for 13-25 year olds. As a former City high-flyer with more than 30 years’ experience in a variety of settings, I also have a deep understanding of the often complex issues associated with high-pressure work and uneven work-life balance.

Therapy is tailored exclusively to you. My approach is contemporary and relational, but rooted in the best psychodynamic traditions. This means that we will look at your past as well as your present with the aim of creating long-lasting change and a happier and more fulfilling future.

Practice description

I offer both short and long-term work, depending on individual need. 

I work with young people and adults, from 13 to 80-plus, who may be impacted by:

- Anxiety

- Relationship and family issues

- Trauma

- ADHD and autism

- Work stress

- Disability

- Bereavement and loss


Concessions are sometimes available.

My first session

An initial consultation with me is your first step to a more positive future. It is an opportunity for you to talk freely about the issues affecting you so we can explore how we might work usefully together. 

This first session may last up to 90 minutes and does not commit you to further sessions. Subsequent sessions are 50 minutes.

During the pandemic, I am offering sessions via Zoom or on the phone, but will return to face-to-face when possible subject to client wishes.
