About me

I am a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist with a London practice in the heart of the City (EC1), and ongoing experience working in an NHS specialist eating disorders service in North London.  Trained in the psychodynamic approach I work with individuals from a wide diversity of backgrounds and areas of difficulty including:

Depression; anxiety; eating disorders including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia, non-specific eating problems; self harm; uncontained anger; low self-esteem; loss of direction in life; bereavement; relationship problems; identity issues; and trauma.

The House on Snow Hill where I have my private practice offers a peaceful and confidential space to explore and develop a deeper understanding of your difficulties and patterns of relating.  I do not offer solutions, but in our work together help you to find your own.  Nor do I promise quick fixes or overnight cures.  Counselling and psychotherapy is a gradual process which can help you gain a deeper understanding of your difficulties and how they have arisen, a greater sense of personal choice and efficacy and an enhanced capacity to relate to yourself and others.

Sessions last fifty minutes and take place at the same time and day of the week.    

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, BACP, and the UKRCP. I adhere to the BACPs code of ethics which stresses the importance of a safe and reliable setting, confidentiality and continual professional development. I also have an MA in Psychology from the University of St Andrews.

My clinical work in the NHS, a non-profit counselling service and private practice has brought me into contact with many different client groups. Through my ongoing work with inpatients at the St Anns Eating Disorders Service in North London, I have gained specialised experience and expertise in this area.
