Do depression, fear, sadness, anxiety, panic, phobias, insecurities, addictions or difficult relationships trouble you?
Psychotherapy works through providing a caring, professional relationship which can help you find a way to understand and then manage your distress. Making links between your difficulties and your life can lead to changes while a better understanding reduces pain and moves you towards greater contentment.
Why Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology?
Psychotherapy and Counselling are specific sorts of conversations aimed at helping you know yourself better. They are necessary because your distress is intimately related to your experiences and your ways of being in the world. Through greater self-understanding, you could take steps towards alleviating what troubles you. That is the reason most schools of wisdom recommend self-knowledge.
Such conversations are not easy or comfortable but nothing worth achieving ever is. In our work, you make a commitment to creating a regular space in your life for self-development. It becomes somewhere you go to remember, think and experience.
Psychotherapy is a treatment for psychological distress where we work together to remove barriers to your growth. Without this work, our lives remain conflicted and unfulfilled and we continue to repeat what we have always done and get the usual results. Such conversations are unlike those with friends and family because you need someone trained to help, to ask the right questions and not be invested in maintaining your current life.
The benefits in psychotherapy derive from the life-changing magic of knowing your own psychology. I will work with you to create a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where you can speak openly and be heard. The experience of being heard and understood is very helpful towards making the changes that lead to contentment.

My fees range between £60-80 for regular on-going sessions of 50 minutes. I charge £60 in Hove and at least £70 in London. We will negotiate our fee at our initial meting, not before.
Therapy is a commitment so once we agree on a time slot, I charge for missed sessions. If you let me know in advance when you have to miss a session, I will do my best to find an alternative time during the same week.
I work in Central London near the Barbican in EC1 and in central Hove on Church Road.
I have a third floor office very close to Barbican station. I am within easy walking distance of Holborn, Chancery Lane, Farringdon, Old Street, Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations
Unfortunately there is no disabled access at either practice.
My ethical stance and professional values are governed by my passion for and belief in the value of psychotherapy. To this end, I work hard to offer a confidential and supportive environment informed by my professional memberships of the United Kingdom Council on Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
As far as your data and confidentiality are concerned, I retain and process only the absolute minimum information needed to offer you a service in line with professional and legal requirements.
