About me

I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor offering psychological therapies to adults and couples in English, French and German. I am a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I offer short-term counselling and longer-term psychotherapy, as well as an extended one-off consultation: MOT of the mind.

I strongly believe that emotional wellbeing should be given the same importance as physical health. Consulting a psychotherapist should be as accessible and normal as consulting any other health professional. With this aim, I also offer the option of an extended stand-alone consultation lasting 75 minutes. This could be likened to an MOT of the mind, an in-depth conversation with a skilled therapist to help you stop, take stock and consider your life and relationships.

It is now largely accepted that the effectiveness of psychotherapy is largely based on two factors: the first is the understanding and insight that emerges during therapy about repeating patterns stemming from past experiences and relationships which sabotage current self-beliefs and relationships; whereas the second is the positive and collaborative therapeutic relationship which develops between the therapist and the client over time. When both aspects flourish, change and personal development can take place.

As a psychotherapist I see clients for a range of issues,including depression and low mood, anxiety, difficulties in relationship, intimacy and co-dependency,  family issues and parenting, trauma, bereavement, mid-life crisis, low self-esteem and confidence, psychosomatic symptoms, domestic violence and abuse.

I work with adults from different cultural and professional backgrounds going through emotional difficulties in an open, non-judgemental and supportive manner.

Having worked as a lawyer and banker for 10 years, I have a particular understanding of the challenges and stresses of the corporate environment and I've helped individual and corporate clients with work related issues such as stress, career transitions, redundancies, maternity, perfectionism, under performance, self-sabotage.

Having a multilingual background and great awareness of cultural differences people can face when moving countries and starting new careers and settling children into new environments. With last year's referendum, I have worked with my clients' anxiety caused by the uncertainty in their personal and professional lives.
