About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling anxious or overwhelmed? Maybe there’s been a change in your life - a relationship issue, you may have lost someone,  have work difficulties, health concerns, or something else. You may not be sure where to start, and who you can trust. This can feel scary.  I respect the courage that it takes for you to think about contacting a therapist.

My role is not to tell you what to do. I am here to listen to you and together with you to seek out your own words and your own way forward. As you talk about whatever is important to you, I will encourage you to notice what is going on inside you. You and I will be open-minded detectives listening to the information within you: your emotions, physical sensations and your thoughts. This is a process that leads to finding your truth, clarity and your way forward in your life.

I have worked with people on a wide range of concerns, in private practice, in a large organisation focused on work issues, and in an LGBTQ organisation.  I am currently furthering my training in sex and relationships at Tavistock.

I currently work online with secure video, or by telephone. If you would like to talk with me first then I offer a free 20 minute phone call, at a mutually convenient time. (I work in beautiful therapy rooms in Gloucester rd tube in Kensington)

If you would like to see what it would be like to work with me, you can contact me by email and we can arrange a time for an initial session. An initial session is a paid for 50-minute session where you can get a sense of what I offer. If you wish to proceed, we can meet weekly at the same time, in a slot reserved for you.

If you would like to talk to me before deciding to book a session, I offer a free twenty minute phone call at a mutually arranged time.
