About me and my therapy practice

I have had a varied career, and I believe that familiarity with the variety of human experience is one of my great strengths as a therapist. I approach each client with warmth, an open mind, and a sense of their unique perspective on the world. I particularly welcome inquiries from clients who may worry about judgement or misunderstanding. This includes people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual or otherwise embody gender, romantic and sexual diversity; people in non-monogamous relationships, who participate in BDSM, do any form of sex work, who use psychoactive drugs, belong to other minority groups, or who otherwise feel marginalised or under-served by the counselling profession.

I completed degrees in science and philosophy before qualifying as a counsellor, and I combine the analytic strength of these disciplines with the warmth of humanistic therapy. Following the person-centred approach, I believe that every person has the capacity within themselves for growth and healing. I provide an empathetic and supportive environment for that capacity to unfold. My work is also influenced by cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), so I help clients explore the unstated, often unhelpful, assumptions behind their responses to challenging situations. I also draw from various other theories and methods, including existential psychotherapy, transactional analysis, and mindfulness practices. I have read broadly, within psychotherapy and related disciplines, and try to offer whatever I think would be helpful to each client as an individual without ever being prescriptive.

My practice is based near to London Bridge. I try to offer flexible session arrangements, depending on what timing works for the client. I work both short- and long-term, and offer online session in addition to face-to-face.
