About me and my therapy practice
If you are experiencing difficulty or distress in your life psychotherapy and counselling can provide a time and place for when you most need support. It can also be an opportunity to work through the problems you are facing. Alternatively, it might be that there is some dissatisfaction in your life or that you have lost a sense of purpose or direction. If you are in any such situation my aim is to help you reflect on the issues that are troubling you, help you to seek an understanding of what you are experiencing and to work with you to explore what options there might be to help you through this difficult time.
I provide a safe and confidential space where you can talk about your concerns and hopes for the future. I will work hard to understand your expectations of therapy and to make sense of what is most important to you right now.
As a chartered psychologist I have 20 years experience as a mental health researcher that includes working at the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London. My research focus has been to seek an understanding of what may put someone at risk for developing a serious mental health problem. I have lectured for over 15 years in the area of clinical psychology and counselling, publishing over 60 articles in the field of psychiatry and psychology.

COVID-19: In addition to online video and phone sessions I am now offering garden based in-person therapy sessions. These in-person meetings are held in an outdoor space under the shelter of a gazebo. COVID-19 safety is taken as a priority.
