City Of London
Welcome to my profile. For your convenience, I also offer sessions via Skype as well as face-to-face. If you'd like to watch a short introductory video, please scroll right down to the bottom of the page.
With over 20 years' experience as a therapist, I've helped hundreds of clients with a wide range of problems. I am passionately committed to providing effective, confidential counselling to people like you who want to move forward with their lives.
Counselling and psychotherapy with me offer a safe environment to explore your thoughts and feelings. I'm a down-to-earth therapist who strives to listen to your story and really 'hear' you, working with you to promote discovery and insight. Together we will uncover your strengths and, if you wish, I can help you develop new skills for a more satisfying and contented life.
Positive results I have seen with clients include:
- Closer relationships and increased ability to ask for support
- Insight into ingrained patterns of behaviour, leading to more
choice in how clients respond to issues
- Improved ability to deal with difficult people
- Increased confidence in making life choices
- Higher self-esteem and increased assertiveness
- Greater confidence and satisfaction at work
- More positive and stable moods
- Feeling calmer, more at peace day-to-day.
I work with a wide range of issues, including: depression; low mood; stress; lack of confidence; children leaving home (empty nest); difficulties around trying to become pregnant, or IVF cycles; separation & divorce; issues with siblings or parents; work issues; bereavement & loss; sexual abuse; transition to parenthood; miscarriage; stillbirth; redundancy or a job ending; cultural and multi-heritage issues; general dissatisfaction with life; lack of purpose.
Bereavement & loss
My original training was as a bereavement counsellor and I have a special interest in bereavement and loss. Your grief could be due to a death, because a relationship has ended, or linked to some other loss.
While bereavement refers to the process of adjusting to life without the person who has died, grief concerns the emotional responses that result from any type of loss. People often feel the need to to go over and over the events around the loss, which is part of how you start to process your emotions and come to terms with the person or thing no longer being in your life.
However, you may find yourself feeling stuck, cycling through the same emotions repeatedly, and not know how to move through them. That's where counselling can help.
How I work
I trained as an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means I have a range of therapeutic skills at my disposal, so counselling is tailored to your individual needs. Talking about what’s happening now often leads quite naturally to the linking together of previous events, throwing light on current problems and leading to useful and sometimes dramatic insights.
If appropriate, I use elements of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) an effective, well-researched model based on the notion that our thoughts, ideas and beliefs influence how we feel. Your needs as the client are always at the heart of our work together.
Call or email me to discover whether I can help you. You are under no obligation to make a commitment.

I am registered as a psychotherapist with Health Insurance Providers Bupa, PruHealth, WPA, Cigna and Aviva Health.
