I am a Psychotherapist (UKCP accredited) and Executive Coach working with individuals and couples.
I will work with you to make meaning of your internal struggles to understand them better by identifying their root causes. This is a collaborative process where I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental space to explore your inner world and presenting issues. I believe strongly that therapy is a two-way process between client and therapist. Together we will design the therapeutic journey that is best suited for you.
I have experience with many conditions and concerns, including - but not limited to - low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, sexuality, identity, bereavement, grief, anger management, LGBT issues, couples and relationship difficulties. I have experience with Personality Disorders such as Bipolar, Borderline, Anti-Social, Obsessive Compulsive and Schizoid. I am trained in Transactional Analysis therapy and draw upon Psychodynamic and Relational models in my work.
I practice in Canary Wharf (3 min walk from West India Quay and Westferry DLR stations) and Old Street (4 min walk from the tube station).
I am a member of the BACP. I have experience of working as a counsellor at MIND (the UK's largest mental health charity). I have also worked at a psychiatric hospital where l was part of a multidisciplinary team working with personality disorders providing complex care.
I have over 15 years of experience working in the corporate world in a senior management capacity. Over this time, I have gained tremendous insight into the world of leadership and management. I understand work related issues such as stress, performance anxiety, and managing teams. I also work as an executive coach on significant job related issues such as career counselling, redundancy, preparation for promotions and developing new leaders and managers.
The sessions can help you with:

- Dealing with anxiety or stress

Other areas of counselling I deal with
My original training and background was in Hotel Management and Facilities Management. I have had over 15 years of experience working in industry in a senior management capacity. I have led large, multi-jurisdictional teams and understand the leadership challenges associated with those roles. Over this time, I have gained tremendous knowledge of work related issues from stress, performance anxiety to leadership issues and team development.
I am an associate director in a boutique consultancy - Blacklight Advisory Ltd (www.blacklightadvisory.co.uk) that specialises in organisation and leadership development.
As a coach, I will work with you, drawing from my experience in industry, to help you with the challenges of your role. Whether you are struggling at work or looking to develop yourself, I can help you gain insight into the patterns of behaviour that impede your performance. We will work together to understand what is holding you back, what are in your 'blind spots' and how you can leverage and build your strengths. Often, I work with leaders looking to build their leadership capability in order to better run their businesses and better manage their teams.
I am also available to run group work and team sessions. I regularly run sessions with teams on understanding their interpersonal communication styles.
