I specialise in providing intensive therapy to people who work in media and the creative arts industries.
I have been running a successful private practice as a counsellor for 35 years and have substantial experience of working in the public sector (NHS) too.
The Training, Qualifications and Experience section below shows the depth and range of my experience, and the level of my training.
Please look at that section carefully, so that 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: SE6 (near Lewisham Hospital), SE1 (Waterloo/Southwark tube station), 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.
