8 Tycehurst Hill
Highstone House Room 1J
165 High Street
As an experienced professional with over 25 years experience, I am aware of the need for people to find a therapist who can offer a discreet, confidential space separate to work and home life. My consulting room is separate to my house in Loughton, situated at the rear, on Spareleaze Hill, with parking outside - and is ideal for clients seeking a therapist near to North East London or South West Essex. I am only seven or eight minutes from Loughton tube station and ten minutes from the M11. I also have a consulting room in Barnet.
As a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with over 25 years experience. I am familiar with most of the causes of human distress. By thinking and talking together with a trained psychotherapist, you may find it easier to understand how past experiences, current patterns of thought and behaviour, or anxieties about the future are causing difficulties in your present life.
Psychotherapy and Counselling can take a substantial amount of time to get to the root causes that can lead to permanent change. However brief therapy may also be an option in certain circumstances.
Through the relationship with your therapist and the shared exploration of your life, the hope is that you will find relief from recurring problems, live life more fully and realise your full potential. This is a process of change, as well as understanding.
In addition to my private practice I am also a psychotherapist for the University of Essex and Enfield Counselling Service where I am also Head of Training

Choosing a therapist
The key to successful therapy is finding the right therapist for you. However good a therapist is, it is the relationship between the two of you that determines whether you trust them enough, and they come to understand you enough, to help you explore and find solutions for your problem.
We can meet for a single session, to discuss what you are looking for from therapy. Only you can decide whether you are with the right therapist for you. Do not be afraid to ask questions or request further information before making your mind up.
Before agreeing to see a particular therapist, ask yourself:
- would you feel comfortable telling them intimate details of your life?
- do you feel safe with them?
- do you like their manner towards you?
- could you be completely open with them?
