About me and my therapy practice

About me

I am a counsellor and psychotherapist who works with adult couples and individuals of all ages and backgrounds. I aim to create a safe, non-judgemental space so you feel able to talk freely about anything which is distressing you.

You may be feeling unhappy, alone or just that something is not quite right. In our sessions I will listen with empathy and compassion and together we can look at your emotions and situation, and understand how old patterns of behaviour can leave you feeling stuck and hopeless - paving the way for you to think about how things might be different. 

My clinical framework is psychodynamic, meaning that I help clients consider how past experiences may relate to their current feelings, behaviour patterns and relationships, with the aim of uncovering the root cause of the problem.

Training, qualifications and memberships

I trained at Tavistock Relationships in London where I also work as a visiting clinician. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Couple and Individual Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy which is accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I am a Graduate Member of Tavistock Relationships Association of Psychotherapists and Counsellors and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and comply with the BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice, including the importance of confidentiality. I attend regular supervision and professional development programmes and workshops to enhance my knowledge and development in psychotherapy. 

Practice description

Couple therapy

Our couple relationships can be a great source of hope and satisfaction, but when they take a wrong turn, they can leave us feeling alone, resentful and disappointed. You may be experiencing difficulties communicating, frequent arguments, betrayal or may be struggling with major life events.

Couple therapy can foster a deeper understanding of ourselves and the relationship we have created together with our partner. Couples often find that expressing their difficult feelings in front of an impartial, trained therapist can provide relief – that they have come together to work on something important to them both and are able to gain valuable insight into their problems. By reflecting on what each partner brings to the relationship, blame can be relinquished, leaving space for collaboration, empathy and understanding to flourish.

Though there is no one-size-fits-all solution, many couples find that it takes only a short period of therapy to enable them to make constructive and long-lasting changes that benefit and strengthen their relationship.

Individual therapy

You may choose to come to individual therapy because you are struggling with a major life decision or you may be feeling unhappy or dissatisfied or have trouble sustaining healthy relationships with others. You may be feeling anxious, sad or lacking in self-confidence.

Individual therapy focuses on our thought processes and behaviours, and the significance we attribute to particular patterns and ways of being. The opportunity to be heard in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space can allow you to become more aware of your actions, coping mechanisms and vulnerabilities - fostering the chance for long-term change.

My first session

Starting therapy

I can be contacted by phone or email, which I will respond to by the end of the next working day. We can then have a short phone conversation, and, if appropriate, schedule an initial consultation, before committing to ongoing work. This consultation will allow you to decide if working together would be the right thing for you.

It is important that you feel comfortable with me so that a relationship based on trust can develop between us. It also allows me to be sure that embarking on therapy is the best way forward for you in your circumstances. If we decide to proceed with ongoing work, we will agree a day and time for weekly sessions.

My fee for initial consultations is £90 for individuals and £110 for couples. I have a limited number of places for those on low incomes- please contact me to discuss in more detail.
