I am a senior experienced and professionally trained and qualified Integrative psychotherapist, supervisor and counsellor. I provide a caring supportive and informed environment for someone to talk to face to face in the strictest of confidence and without judgement. I specialise in areas of depression, anxiety and panic attacks, relationship difficulties, self esteem and low self worth, and addiction.
Since 1995 I have been running a successful private practice with adults. I currently work from comfortable consulting rooms in Belsize Park in North London. I also work with the Marylebone Centre for Psychological Therapies teaching on the diploma course and run C.P.D workshops.
Working integratively allows me to be open to people's needs and to be able to respond in a variety of ways. I believe people are unique individuals and thus I offer a holistic integrative approach. I also work with the Arts, which can involve drawing, sandtray, dream work and body work, this medium can be particularly powerful when words fall short of meaning and expression.
Training, qualifications & experience
I Have a wide range of experience working for twelve years in social services, therapeutic centres and with a consultant psychiatrist in a hospitals, foster care associations,and schools.
I currently work with several G.P's in north London, Employee Assistant Programs including B.U.P.A and eating disorder associations. With fifteen years previous experience in theater and television, my involvement in creative expression greatly enhances my work as a therapist.
