About me and my therapy practice

My approach is client-focused and eclectic, drawing on a number of modalities and traditions in response to each person as an individual with a unique life and specific needs which, I believe, deserve a tailored response. I will not try and fit you into a certain way of being or impose a psychological theory. We would, however, be free to explore different ways of thinking about or approaching your concerns that you might find helpful.

My specific area of interest is relationships, both with other people in our lives and also with ourselves. People I work with are often aware of an internal, critical part of themselves and be inclined to “beat themselves up”, even over the small stuff. Self-esteem is one of my key areas of focus, working on negative feelings such as emptiness, worthlessness, wrongness, lack of motivation and procrastination. I’m also interested in issues around gender, sexuality and contemporary ideas of masculinity and femininity.

In every story, the protagonist is helped along the way by various characters who can be called upon to provide impartial guidance, having walked the path before and who are therefore familiar with the territory. You may well have experienced more than your share of ups and downs on your life journey and living in London and enjoying yourself can take its toll physically and emotionally, sometimes we end up feeling lost and finding our path can seem like an impossible task. You may already have some connections you can rely on or perhaps you could do with some additional help. This is where a counsellor with life experience and the right training can prove to be a useful ally.

If you feel like we could be a fit for each other or would like to discuss working together more fully, I can be available for an initial consultation or to answer your questions by email or phone.
