About me

General

A UKCP Registered psychotherapist and counsellor, I offer one-to-one therapy at two clinics - one in Harley Street and the other in Enfield Town. I have a great deal of experience working with psychological problems and I use a combination of psychotherapy and hypnotherapy in my work, achieving excellent results in a short space of time. I am very friendly and approachable and care about the specific needs of all my clients. 

A bit more about me

I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and have written over twenty-five articles on psychotherapy integration. I treat the full range of psychological problems and I do this by helping my clients come to terms with their issues, while boosting their confidence.

What to expect?

Generally, in the first session, you will be asked to consider your goals for treatment. This will help you to plan your therapy and begin to make behavioural changes in the shortest time possible.

What to do next?

Simply, ring me on 07946 579645/0207 467 8564 and we can discuss your intrinsic needs and book you in for a session.

Do I need to contact my GP?

One used to have to get a referral from one's GP; however, nowadays, you can self refer and I will only write to your local clinic with your permission.
