About me

A warm and thoughtful registered counsellor and psychotherapist, I specialise in couples counselling, relationship issues, anxiety, depression and anger management. I welcome LGBT clients. I offer daytime appointments. I practise in Clapton, Hackney, London E5.

I offer you the opportunity to deal with crises and difficulties in your life, and to develop and deepen your understanding and awareness of yourself - who you are, where you have come from and where you are going. Through gentle conversation and reflection, you will be supported to find ways forward that work for you.

Prior to training as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked for many years in book publishing in a variety of roles, including Sales Director and later Joint Managing Director of The Women's Press. I previously worked as a social worker, a family caseworker and community worker, and in a therapeutic community for people with alcohol issues.

I am trained in a wide range of therapeutic models and I tailor my approach to the individual person. I will listen to you attentively and thoughtfully, respond with genuine interest and concern, and preserve the integrity and confidentiality of the therapeutic relationship.

I offer couples counselling, individual counselling, short term counselling and longer term psychotherapy.
