About me

Hello, thank you for taking a minute to look at my profile, I know the decision to embark on seeking a therapist is daunting. You might need to meet a few therapists for initial consultations before you decide who you feel comfortable talking with.

I offer a confidential space for you to talk about what ever you wish, so that you are able to talk through the things that are troubling you and together we work out why you feel like you do and look for ways to understand them.

I trained at WPF London and I am a psychotherapist with 16 years experience.

If you are experiencing anxiety, panic and maybe anger these feelings can be understood.   Of course you might have other things in your life which are unbearable as well; such as bereavement, family and relationship issues, divorce, anorexia/bulimia.

If you would like to meet for an initial consultation, perhaps send me an email to find out if I have availability at a time you are also free. Sessions are 50 minutes once a week. Either for a short length of time 12 weeks, or on going.

Training, qualifications & experience

I undertook an extensive seven years of training at WPF which is one of the highest regarded organisations in London.

* Psychodynamic Psychotherapist (Licensed in twice weekly work) (additional 2 yr study)

I work within a strict code of professional and ethical conduct, I am a registered member of the BPC/UKCP and FPC.  All conversations are confidential and discretion guaranteed.  I work to the Ethical Framework for good practice.
