About me

I offer Psychotherapy for both individuals and couples and have over 10 years experience. Areas that I secialise in include; anxiety, self-doubt, relationships, sex, depression, stress and low self-esteem. The aim of my work is to help you develop clearer understanding of whatever difficulties you might be facing and from there feel more confident within yourself and your relationships.


Below are a number of experiences that are often reported as result of therapy -

  • Reduced feelings of panic and overwhelm.
  • Gaining powerful tools to transform anxiety.
  • Feeling more empowered at work.
  • Addressing work/life balance.
  • New ways to communicate within relationships.
  • Feeling more confident within stressful situations.
  • Clearer awareness of patterns in relationships.
  • More enjoyment of life.

Psychotherapy offers a unique opportunity to gain new perspectives that may not yet have been considered. This opens things up and anxious beliefs that may have been the cause of stress for some time can start to shift and change. The tension, avoidance and confusion begins to ease and it can sometimes be like seeing one's life and relationships very differently. More possibilities and options open up.

My background

Before working as a therapist I worked as a Designer and after decades within this field I decided to retrain and follow a desire to understand the human condition, how our minds work and to better know myself. Having grown up in the wilds of Devon I studied design in Manchester and Australia before moving to London, which has now been my home for 25 years. London can be a tough place to live but what I love most about being here is the cultural and creative diversity

I believe we all have the capacity to heal, change and grow beyond our difficulties, confusions and anxieties.


What to expect

For individuals -

We meet on a weekly basis and this can be for a defined period of time or on an on-going arrangement. Our work is confidential and I provide a safe space for you to talk about the things that are troubling you. These may be be current or they may be difficulties that you've been struggling with for some time. I ask all clients to keep a psychotherapy journal in which to make notes, record dreams and do some of the exercises I offer. It helps to have a record so that you can assess how things will have progressed and changed.


For couples -

Often couples who come to work with me describe having lost connection with each other. This loss of connection is very painful and is often at the heart of most relationship conflict. I see much my work as helping couples to find their way back into connection.

Generally, we aren't taught how to be in a relationship or how best to express our needs and fully understand the needs of out partner. What I offer is an opportunity for couples to learn new ways to communicate and as a result develop deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and the relationship itself.

If a couple is ready to work together they have the capacity to completely transform and deepen their relationship and rediscover feelings they thought they'd lost.
