About me

I am a psychotherapist, counsellor and clinical supervisor and have been practising for 21 years. I am able to work with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, work, relationship problems and bereavement/transition and help both adult and adolescent clients from 14 years upwards. I have a private practice in Chelsea and also Notting Hill. The nearest tube stations are: Sloane Square and Fulham Broadway for the Chelsea practice and Notting Hill Gate for the practice in Notting Hill. I see clients for both short term and long term work.

I currently work as one of two school counsellors at the City of London School for Girls and  have worked for the NHS as a primary care counsellor in GP practices and as a counselling assessor in an agency setting for 20 years; where I also undertook some training and supervision for the trainee counsellors. I have worked with students and was the in house counsellor for both staff and students at Mander Portman Woodward for 7 years; a college situated in South Kensington and have done some sessional work at UCL. I was a supervisor at MIND in Fulham: where I supervised the work, in groups, of some of the trainee therapists and currently supervise at the MIND in Hackney. I was also in post as the Clinical Coordinator for the low cost therapy service at The Minster Centre; a psychotherapy training organisation based in Queens Park.

I hold a Diploma in clinical supervision and see both trainee and professional therapists for supervision.

Further information

Counselling is fundamentally a safe space in which you can begin to explore feelings and issues, which are affecting and possibly holding you back in your life. As a therapist, I am not going to judge you or give you direct advice but I might make suggestions or help you to look at things from a different perspective. I will also be able to help you work through your issues until you are able to come to your own conclusions and perhaps enable you to make decisions that could improve your life. We might also explore how your childhood has impacted on your adult life and focus on any patterns that may continue to be repeated but are not helpful. I also incorporate some other ways of working into the therapy if I feel that it would benefit the client e.g. I might perhaps use some cognitive tools in order to alleviate anxiety and panic attacks.
