About me

Most people at some point in their lives, and for all sorts of reasons, undergo periods of heightened anxiety or low depressive moods, and it can be difficult to find the right person who can meet the need to be listened to with professional understanding and the utmost confidentiality. For this reason, I attach great importance to the first assessment session of counselling where a client's individual concerns can be heard and appropriate ways of working together can be decided upon.
From this point, I offer either a brief number of focussed sessions of counselling, or more open-ended therapy, all taking place in the safety and calm of my counselling room. My aim is always to enable desired changes to take place in a supportive framework.
I originally trained as an integrative therapist, but now predominantly use psychodynamic techniques, that is,   methods based on psychoanalysis.   Besides my current private practice, I have worked for some years as a counsellor within the NHS, and as a counsellor of students at a London University. So I have experience of clients from a variety of backgrounds and with a wide range of issues.
