37-41 Gower Street
As you're reading this I would imagine you are seeking support for a situation that is difficult or to address something within you which is troubling. Well done for taking this step and I'm glad you've found my profile.
I offer psychotherapy and counselling in Gray's Inn Road, about five minutes from Kings Cross station and also in Gower Street, near UCL. Our work together would be confidential and I strive to create a safe and non-judgemental environment for you.
What sort of issues do you deal with?
The themes which occur frequently in my practice include:
- Workplace issues: burnout, toxic workplaces, redundancy and career change
- Addiction and compulsions, including alcohol, drugs, sex, work, eating and negative relationships
- Sexuality and relationship issues
- Meaningless, "stuckness", grief and loss
- Childhood abuse and neglect, including divorce and bullying
I work with a wide range of presenting clients and in my experience the quality of the relationship between a therapist and a client is just as, if not more important to a successful therapeutic process. So if what you're facing isn't explicitly listed here, but you feel we otherwise might work well together, don't hesitate to get in touch.
What sort of therapist am I?
First and foremost: I am a friendly and open therapist. I believe therapy works best when there is a strong connection between therapist and client and that the basis for that connection is authenticity. I am open minded, trustworthy and compassionate. I am emotionally and cognitively intelligent and I commit to applying myself fully to assisting you in your journey. I work mainly within the talking mode, but also have experience with creative techniques and approaches such as visualisation and mindfulness meditation.
What theoretical model do you use?
I am trained as an Integrative therapist, and I bring together theories from psychodynamic, humanistic and transpersonal schools of therapy. My way of working is holistic: I believe we are not a separate body and mind, rather that our entire being is relevant to therapy. This means while thoughts, memories and beliefs are important, exploring feelings: as experienced in our bodies, in our imagination and in our dreams, can be really useful. I often find clients have trouble "knowing what they feel" and these techniques help to resolve that, which often helps to unlock many other psychological problems.
I've attempted to explain who I am and how I work above. But perhaps the most useful way to get to know if you'd like to work with me is to have an introductory session. You'd get a feel for how I work and the sort of therapist I am. A first session does not commit you in any way.
Training, qualifications & experience
I began working with clients in 2009 and I am a UKCP accredited, full clinical psychotherapist. I adhere to the UKCP code of practice.

As well as the formal training I have undertaken, I complete regular continuing professional development (CPD). I also work with a clinical supervisor who acts as an ongoing source of development.
I have worked in psychotherapeutic contexts in the NHS, in community organisations and in private practice. I have worked both in counselling and psychotherapy roles and also as an assessor for clients approaching a service for the first time.
I have specific experience working with victims of abuse, divorce, anxiety, depression, addiction, sexuality problems, life meaning, bereavement and stress management. My specialist research area during my training was around "hunger", which looked at emotional eating, addictive and compulsive tendencies around food and also the relationship between hunger and spirituality. I work with clients regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, ethnic or religious background.
Prior to my training in psychotherapy, I worked for 15 years in international business.
