About me and my therapy practice

People often choose to see a counsellor or therapist for relationship problems only when the pain of not doing so exceeds the pain of revealing themselves to a perfect stranger. It is daunting to think about sharing personal details of life with someone you don’t know. It is my experience, however, that when counselling is approached as a warm and collaborative undertaking with a therapist who has received specialised training in couple and individual relationship therapy, the discomfort eases quickly. I am an experienced and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist trained at the world-renowned Tavistock Relationships, part of the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, where I also worked as a Visiting Clinician. My private practice has consulting rooms in both Belgravia and Hammersmith. The purpose of coming to counselling is unique to each couple and individual. A successful outcome depends a great deal on sorting out your goals and we will work together to tailor a specific plan to address your needs. Our work together can be either short-term to deal with a specific issue, or more open-ended, which we can discuss when we meet. I work with Couples to help them communicate and understand each other, and achieve a more satisfying and meaningful relationship. I can also help negotiate difficult feelings brought up during separation and divorce, or by affairs and betrayals. If your partner is unable to attend or you would like to work on issues without your partner present, we can work together one-to-one. I also counsel Individuals who are not presently in a relationship. Perhaps there has been a recent breakup you would like to understand better, or fear attracting the same type of person yet again. We can work together to examine your past relationships, and understand underlying patterns that are preventing you from finding a satisfying relationship. Please refer to my website for a more detailed discussion.
