About me

I am psychotherapist with over 10 years' experience, offering short- and long-term psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families.

Counselling and psychotherapy can give you the opportunity to talk, listen, and be listened to, in safety and in confidence.  It is a chance to express how you feel, say the unsayable, and be supported in taking these risks. Whether you come on your own, as part of a couple, or as a family, you will be given the space to understand more about yourself, and explore new ways of relating to others.

Warmth and compassion are central to my work, alongside a rigorous attention to the detail of what you bring.  I offer a place where you will be supported without being given advice, and challenged without being judged.

Please see my website for further information.

Training, qualifications & experience

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (University of Bristol, 2010)
  • Graduate Certificate in Couple Counselling (Relate/University of East London, 2006)   
  • MSc (Econ.) Social Policy and Planning (London School of Economics, 1997)
  • BA (Hons) Philosophy and Modern Languages (University of Oxford, 1993)

I have worked with individuals, couples and families at Relate (2005-2011); at the NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (2007-2009); and at the Bridge Foundation (2011-2015).  Since 2012, I have been a member of the UKCP’s Professional Conduct Committee.  Alongside my work as a psychotherapist, I run workshops on behalf of the Donor Conception Network.

I have been fully qualified and UKCP-registered since 2010, and in private practice since 2011.  I have a supervisor with whom I discuss my work, and regularly attend training and workshops to further develop my practice.
