I work with individuals who are experiencing problems with relationships, depression, anxiety, phobias, bereavement, low self-esteem, work related problems, eating problems and psychosomatic illness. I have a special interest and experience in working with people from a variety of ethnic backgrounds and an affinity to exploring cultural issues and creativity.
How does Counselling or Psychotherapy help?
- by offering a safe space where you can speak about feelings that
worry or frighten you;
- by offering support during times of crisis and transition;
- by deepening awareness of yourself and your relationships;
- by helping to make sense of recurrent problems and by exploring
their links with the past;
- by identifying and changing patterns of thought and behaviour;
- by clarifying choices and helping resolve old hurts and conflicts;
- by gaining deeper understanding of your conscious and
unconscious processes you may be helped to feel more in
charge and able to lead a more fulfilled life.
I see clients in a counselling capacity for once weekly sessions and for one to five sessions per week in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

Lack of meaning in life
My fees range from £55 to £70 per session. I can also offer a limited number of reduced fee spaces for clients on low incomes.
General Availability: Weekdays in the daytime and evenings.
After an initial telephone contact in which I shall try to understand if I can be of help to you and during which there is space for your questions, we might decide to arrange an assessment appointment. This may give us the opportunity to discuss your situation in more detail, clarify practical aspects of potential counselling or psychotherapy and may take up to an hour. I will take a thorough history and advise you on the most appropriate treatment for you.
When regular sessions are agreed on and set up, they will typically start once weekly and last fifty minutes. Over time we might decide to increase the frequency of sessions per week if required and appropriate.
