About me and my therapy practice

Deciding to see a therapist can be a daunting step. People seek therapy for a multitude of problems, which can occur at any time of life. Many of my clients experience difficulties whilst meeting the increasing demands of working in competitive and pressurised environments alongside managing personal responsibilities and relationships. For too long the importance of good mental health has been overlooked in the City. Whilst stress, anxiety and depression in the work place are not new, there is now a growing recognition that people need support at all levels and should be able to do so without fear of stigma. There is no need to struggle on alone and in silence

I offer focused, short-term counselling or in-depth, medium to longer-term psychotherapy and have experience working with people who present with a wide range of emotional issues and from diverse backgrounds. I provide a safe and confidential setting where I work with clients to explore the root causes of their problems. The focus of the therapy is for people to develop a better understanding of themselves, their feelings and patterns of behaviour; this can lead to a capacity for greater personal insight and with this the opportunity for change towards an emotionally healthier way of being and relating.  My practice is based at comfortable rooms close to City Thameslink Rail Station and Farringdon/Chancery Lane tube stations. You are welcome to telephone or email me to discuss your circumstances, with a view to setting up an initial consultation where we can explore your difficulties further and jointly decide the next steps.

I have 20 years experience working in senior communications roles across multinationals to small organisations and have many years experience working as a psychotherapist with both adults and young people. I am also a supervisor and run workshops on short-term psychotherapy for trainee therapists studying at Birkbeck, University of London.

About me and my therapy practice

I am an accredited member of the BCAP and hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from Birkbeck, University of London. I provide psychodynamic supervision for medium to longer term work and have an additional specialism in the higher education sector working with both young people and adults in a short-term modality.

Alongside my private practice in the City, I run workshops on 'short-term psychodynamic work' for MSc students at Birkbeck, University of London. I have professional development training in supervision skills from the British Psychotherapy Foundation and prior to being a therapist, had a long career in communications management and supervisory roles across the corporate and not-for-profit sector. A unique aspect of the MSc course I undertook was the training in individual, group and organisational processes and dynamics which also informs my therapeutic approach.

I believe the role of a supervisor is to provide a safe, reflective and non-judgemental space for you to explore your practice. I bring to the supervision role many years of clinical experience; I work with a wide range of clients from diverse backgrounds and cultures who present with differing emotional issues from chronic mental health problems where risk can be an issue, to more everyday anxiety and low level depression. I encourage a curiosity in supervision with the exploration of the unconscious and the transference and countertransference processes, and promote best practice where professional standards are maintained and the client is always at the heart of the work.

I offer two locations for supervision: NW6 (close to Thameslink/London Overground/Jubilee line) and EC1A (Friday only, close to City Thameslink/ Farringdon and Chancery Lane tubes). To discuss your supervision needs please do contact me by phone or email with a view to setting up an initial meeting. I offer concessionary rates for Associates/Trainees.
