About me

I am an experienced couple and individual psychotherapist and counsellor, working in Herne Hill, 1 mile from Brixton tube, 3 mins from Loughborough Junction overground station. Buses; 35, 45, 345, P4

I offer early morning, daytime and evening appointments.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained with London Marriage Guidance 15 years ago, completing a 3 year diploma in Couple Counselling and a one year Foundation course in Psychosexual counselling with The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships and have worked in a variety of settings since. For the last 11 years I have worked in private practice and was affiliated to Relate. I have continued to undertake professional training and feel well equipped to meet the person or couple who enters the room and help them identify their needs and work towards a new understanding.

I help the client(s) to re-evaluate their personal narrative and beliefs about themselves and the effect that may be having on current behaviour and thinking. Often in life we get stuck in repetitive patterns which can lead to low self esteem, depression, irritability and circular thinking and arguments. The origins of these mental and emotional cul-de-sacs need to be understood before they can be left behind. Much of the process is about becoming more conscious of the unconscious patterns and responses and so enabling different choices in reacting to people and situations and emotions. The more we understand and know ourselves, the less we are encumbered by old survival strategies, once useful but now not so and the more richly we can experience life and relationships. The work can enable a more reflective response rather than a reactive one which can change the way couples interact and the resulting atmosphere.
