About me

Hello, and thank you for reviewing my page.

I hope to reassure you that my 30-year career in well-being and social care enables me to work  creatively, sensitively, and respectfully as a therapist

Whilst I work with a wide range of client concerns and issues, my main area of specialization is with gender and sexual diversity, and with eating disorder and body image matters.

As part of my own training and personal development I undergo intensive psychoanalysis, 3 times weekly.  This, alongside regular supervision is to hold in check that my professional practice is focused, solid, and evolving.

If you are feeling overwhelmed at the thought of beginning therapy, or just unsure,  please feel free to contact me and talk this through.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a BSc (Hons) Psychology degree from Birkbeck, University of London, a PG Diploma in the psychodynamics of human development from the British Association of Psychotherapists, a teaching qualification PGCE, from the University of East London, A PG Certificate from the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in counselling in educational settings. I undertook the PG Certificate at the Institute for Group Analyses and the qualifying clinical PG Diploma in psychodynamic practice at the University of Oxford where I recently submitted my MSt (Master of Studies) dissertation at Kellogg College, Oxford.

I have worked in mental health care in a range of capacities, including being a mentor in several universities across London.  I am a university and college lecturer and a trainer in the fields of psychology, health, counselling, and social care. More recently, I have worked for 3 years as a voluntary therapist with MIND in Islington.

Member organisations


Accredited register membership

Other areas of counselling I deal with

gender identity, sexuality, LGBT, eating disorders, body image concerns, gay men, sexual diversity.


Our initial session, which will be an assessment, is set at £70.00 and lasts for one hour.

Subsequent sessions are from £70.00 per 50-minute session.  This will depend on your income and what you can reasonably pay. We will agree to the fee during the assessment.

20% of my practice is  allocated to low-cost/free clients  so that the unwaged or those on low income are not excluded. However,  I do not currently have any places available until early 2019 where I will review the waiting list.

Further information

I work from rooms in the Farringdon  Practice in Clerkenwell and I also work from  a consulting room at my home in Islington. I am happy to work from where you feel comfortable.
