About me and my therapy practice

Therapy can be transformative - so why struggle alone? Whether you are in deep emotional pain, anxious, stressed or perhaps frustrated with your life, exploring the issues in a safe setting can be empowering. In a world that can feel frantic yet lonely, it's hard to dedicate time to yourself. But you are important: you deserve an opportunity to reassess 'how you got here', to be more self-aware and find ways to be truly happy. I offer the chance to be really heard - with empathy and without judgement - in total confidence. We'll work together to understand what is troubling you at a depth, duration and pace that feel right to you.

An experienced, integrative psychotherapist (MA, Roehampton Univ.), I can draw on Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and CBT skills to suit each client's needs. As well as general practice, I have worked in the NHS and with those in addiction. A first career in print/broadcast media here and abroad taught me the value of openness, communication and connection.

I normally offer long- or short-term face-to-face work - at present I offer telephone or video counselling, which means I can offer sessions nationwide.

Practice description

I currently offer one-hour video (Zoom, Skype, MS Teams) - or telephone only - sessions due to Covid 19.
