About me and my therapy practice

I have 12 years experience in both public & private mental healthcare. My private practice is opposite Wimbledon Common and I offer in person sessions from a discreet & comfortable office.  I also offer 1:1 meetings in the form of Walking Therapy on Wimbledon Common. 

Whilst building my own Practice I worked for the NHS as well as a sessional Psychotherapist at The Priory Hospital, Roehampton.  

"There is still so much stigma here in the UK around mental health issues – strange really, as we will happily spend hours in the gym and on special diets, in order to care for our bodies and physical health! So, why not our psychological well being? Recent breakthroughs in neuro-science inform us that physical changes take place in the brain when we are emotionally or psychologically distressed. The mind/body relationship is more central to our lives today than ever before".

My aim is to provide a professional service in a safe and confidential setting, offering access to counselling and psychotherapy in a modern world.
