About me and my therapy practiceI have a special interest in supporting people of all ages with issues relevant to being a woman, from young women setting out in life, juggling career, relationships or family demands to those navigating their way through the menopause, and beyond.
I also have considerable experience in and enjoy supporting NHS staff in distress, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic so do reach out if this is you.
Perhaps you are questioning who you are as you struggle with hurtful family issues, relationship breakdown, past trauma or children leaving home? Are career changes, loneliness, regret or anger creating anxiety, deep distress and pain? Menopausal changes or living with a bereavement and sense of loss can feel powerfully overwhelming.
You may be feeling stuck, wondering how you got here and where to go next? Sometimes we feel empty and directionless as situations evolve around us, imposing unwanted changes. I understand how significant life events can be profoundly challenging, making the future feel frighteningly uncertain.
Developing self-esteem, confidence and finding out who you are, is often a pivotal feature of the therapy.
I would love to walk with you, supporting you to find choices and meaning where neither seemed possible. We can figure out together how to move into your future with confidence. I work with warmth, honesty and compassion, providing a safe space for you.
I enjoy working in-person and online, making therapy easily accessible. Currently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic I am continuing my practice online only but clients usually have the option to choose online, in-person or a blend of both therapy. In-person therapy takes place at a quiet, comfortable therapy room in West Hampstead in north-west London.
I offer individual one-to-one short-term and long-term therapy for adults 21+.
I hold a B.Soc.Sci Degree in Social Work and Psychology, a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling, Certificates in Counselling Studies and Counselling Skills as well as many years in education as a practitioner and a lecturer. My experience covers work in IAPT for the NHS, The Women's Consortium and Help Counselling Agency.
I work with warmth and compassion to understand your inner world using an integrative approach, tailoring the therapy to suit what works best for you and the issues you bring. We might explore how past ways of relating may be impacting on your present but our focus will remain with what you are struggling with today. We will seek to change what can be changed and grow around what cannot.
My first session
If my page resonates with you, I warmly invite you to email me to book your free 15-minute online or telephone consultation to get a sense of how we might work together. It's so important to find a therapist you click with!
This is also an opportunity to share something of what brings you to therapy, to ask any questions and to understand a bit more about what I can offer you.
There is absolutely no pressure to book an appointment but should you decide to go ahead, we will find a mutually convenient time for your therapy sessions. Once payment has been made by bank transfer, your place is secured and I will email you a confirmation with my welcome pack containing a therapy consent form.
