FIRST SESSION FREE
With over 35 years’ experience of counselling and psychotherapy my work is driven by a deep commitment to help individuals and couples to discover and develop their inner strength, and improve communication as well as overcome anxiety and depression.
I know that life can be tricky, messy and overwhelming, and that even for those of us who are surrounded by people, still be lonely. Together we’ll throw light on the challenges holding you back and work to help find the clarity needed to move forward
I will provide you with a safe space to explore your thoughts and feelings through conversation and reflection. I have extensive experience of working with people with ADHD.
My clients are individuals, couples and families, where I give focussed attention, sharing insights and ideas.
If your relationship is to end I will support you and where children are involved, help ensure they are emotionally well supported.
I am an integrative therapist, which means I draw on different therapeutic models, to include Gestalt, CBT and humanistic psychotherapy.
As well as psychotherapy, I am an accredited coach, having worked extensively with lawyers, supervisor and co-founder of InsideTalk.
There is no charge for initial meetings.

Evening and early morning appointments available.
Couples Counselling and Relationship issues
When a partner becomes the cause of 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 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.
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 so that you can allow both yourself and others live with greater ease and joy.
I will support you with the challenges that ADHD presents, whether it’s simply a space to talk and share, or to look at how to manage symptoms and develop personalised strategies in order to improve focus.
I am a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor, and work both in Hampstead and online; meetings are usually weekly, fifty minutes for individuals, one hour for couples and an hour and a half for families and groups.
I worked as a psychotherapist, coach and supervisor, offering both insight from the psychological world as well as the practicality of the coaching world, working with you to raise awareness and, where useful, find solutions.

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 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.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
