I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a private practice in North London. I provide short and long-term counselling and therapy for individuals in a warm and respectful way. I aim to help you build up enough trust in me to enable us to explore your difficulties or concerns together, without shame or judgment. By looking at what's happening now, and what's happened in the past, I will try to help you gain a clearer understanding of yourself and your relationships with others, so that you can have a happier, more meaningful or more fulfilling life.
People I have helped through counselling have come for a variety of reasons including bereavement, anxiety, divorce or another kind of loss. Some have felt unfulfilled or stuck in their life, and want help with managing or initiating change. Some come because of issues to do with work, relationships, children or sex.
In addition, I have provided therapy for artists, actors, performers and people working in the media. Other specialist areas include parenting, miscarriage, adolescents, students, paranoia, abuse, depression and post-natal depression/anxiety.
I am also a qualified Group Facilitator for people who hear voices, see visions and have unusual beliefs.
I enjoy meeting people from all backgrounds, races, gender identities and sexual orientations and believe that everybody deserves someone to talk to who will listen to them with interest, compassion and empathy.

In my previous career, I was a Television Director. After training at the BBC, I made a wide range of programmes for twelve years, including observational documentaries. Listening to people's stories with genuine interest, and interpreting them creatively, sensitively and with humility was as important to me then as it is now.
