About me

I am an experienced counsellor based in Oxford Circus, Westminster a short distance from Oxford Circus Station and in London Bridge, a short distance from London Bridge station. I provide a calm and confidential space to think about and talk through troubling feelings and experiences.

My approach entails understanding relationships in terms of patterns established in childhood, thinking about what emerges in the relationship with the counsellor and understanding hidden feelings. This approach is well regarded and used in the NHS and elsewhere.
