St John's Wood
I am an experienced systemic and family psychotherapist. I work from a conveniently located practice close to St John's Wood tube and to Regent's Park.
I offer therapy to individuals, couples and families.
Please feel free to contact me by phone or email. If I am not available, please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible. My policy is to be able to offer appointments as soon as possible to avoid you having to wait.
I can offer weekly, fortnightly or more intermittent sessions, depending on need. Sometimes just a few sessions can be helpful. I am flexible about appointment times and offer sessions on Saturdays.
I offer an initial phone or email consultation to see if therapy seems helpful, followed by an initial assessment meeting. This is an opportunity for me to hear more about the problem you want help with or the changes you are keen to make and for you us to decide together if I am the right person to help you. If not, I can usually make suggestions or recommendations.
I am interested in working with you to resolve problems and unhelpful patterns in your life and also in helping you build on your strengths, as an individual or as a family.
