About me

I specialise in providing psychotherapy and counselling to people who work in media and the creative arts industries.

Across 35 years of private practice my clients have included:


actors, architects, artists, comedians, composers, dancers, entertainers, designers, directors, film makers, journalists, musicians, new media artists, performers, photographers, poets, presenters, producers, publishers, sculptors, singers, writers


The Training, Qualifications and Experience section below shows the depth and range of my experience, and the level of my training.

Look at that section carefully so you can feel confident in making a self-referral to my practice, or in recommending me to someone you know.

I have three London work locations: SE3 Blackheath, SE6 close to Lewisham Hospital and W1 Harley Street.

I try to meet with clients where it is most convenient for them, although this will depend on my work schedule and other commitments at the time of your enquiry.
