About me

I am a psychotherapist based in Sydenham, South East London.

I work with individuals on a once weekly basis.


"When you are in psychological distress and someone really hears you

without passing judgement on you, without trying to take responsibility for you,

without trying to mould you, it feels damn good!"

- Carl Rogers

Training, qualifications & experience

After working on a voluntary basis for the National Childbirth Trust with woman and their partners following traumatic birth experiences and a fear of giving birth again, I decided to study psychotherapy and gained a place at WPF Therapy, near London Bridge.

Initially I undertook their Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills and then went on the the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice.

I now work in private practice in Sydenham, South East London, helping clients with many different issues in their lives. While I have worked with a wide range of concerns, I have particular experience with anxiety in young adults and parents with pre and post natal issues.

I regularly attend CPD (Continual Professional Development) courses and receive regular professional supervision. I have full cover professional indemnity insurance.

I am an accredited member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and the FPC (Foundation for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and subscribe to their code of ethics.

I like to have an initial consultation which usually lasts for about 75 minutes. This provides an opportunity to discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and gives a chance to see how we could work together.

The cost of this consultation is £65. This is paid on the day.

Sessions going forward last for 50 minutes and are at the same time each week. The fee per session is £60, invoiced monthly.

I have a number of low fee client sessions per week, however, at this time, these are filled.
