About me and my therapy practice

Are you considering a career change, or are you finding work stressful? Perhaps you are struggling with your boss, or struggling to be a boss. Possibly you have been made redundant or are facing retirement - and are worried about what comes next.

I specialise in career counselling - helping people with their work, career and retirement problems.

As well as being a trained counsellor, I had 34 years’ experience as an award-winning journalist with the Financial Times, writing extensively on the world of work, and I spent nearly a decade as a senior manager. I have also run many education programmes for people stepping up to management positions, looking at how to handle the challenges of being a leader.

Together we can explore what you want from your career and ways to resolve workplace conflicts. We can look at whether you need a change of direction. We can examine the personal and family issues that affect you in the office.

If you are facing redundancy or have recently been made redundant, we can work together on how to handle that.

We can look at any retirement issues you may have - how to manage the end of one career and the possible start of a new one or what you'd like to do next.

Practice description

Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to have an initial no-obligation, no-fee chat. If we decide to go ahead we will have a first session in which we will talk about the background to your concerns and discuss how we'd like to proceed.

I work online, with clients anywhere in the UK or around the world, and face-to-face from comfortable practice rooms on the Finchley Road in North London. I am also happy to do a mixture of face-to-face and online sessions.
