About me


With over 30 years' experience I offer an insightful and friendly space to talk about anything that is troubling you. Whether you’re feeling isolated, unheard, anxious or stuck in work or social relationships ...welcome.   Together we’ll illuminate the shadows and do our best to replace confusion with clarity and ease.

There is no charge for initial meetings.

I am an integrative therapist, which means I draw on different therapeutic models, to include Gestalt, CBT and humanistic psychotherapy, and also an executive/career coach, with experience in professional services, and specifically the legal sector,

Evening and early morning appointments available.

Couples Counselling and Relationship issues
When a partner becomes the cause of the anguish and upset I will work with you to gain greater understanding of yourselves and each other, and help you become a more harmonious couple. Occasionally it may be more appropriate to separate, if so I will work with you to ensure this process is managed sensitively and respectfully.

Depression

Depression can be debilitating, causing feelings of isolation, sleep disturbance, either loss of appetite or binge eating and much more. Simply being able to talk to another person about your inner world in a safe environment, can help you to reconnect with hope and optimism.

Anxiety
Fear and anxiety can prevent you from leading a fulfilled life, can lead you to be an over protective parent, or even to miss out on job opportunities/promotion application. I will work with you to raise awareness and to find the bolder side of you that can allow both yourself and others live with greater ease and joy.

Bereavement
Each bereavement has its own distinctive story. From disbelief to relief, anger and periods of desolation, I will work with you to find your way of living with your bereavement, and help you to re-connect and re-find meaning in your life.

I am a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist and Counselor, and see clients in Hampstead and in the the City; meetings are usually weekly, fifty minutes for individuals, one hour for couples and an hour and a half for families and groups.

i have worked as a psychotherapist, counsellor, supervisor and coach in private practice, and within the NHS, I offer both insight from the psychological world as well as the practicality of the coaching world, and work with you to raise awareness and, where useful, find solutions.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
