About me

I offer therapy in Harley Street, London W1, and Henley-on-Thames.

If you are you feeling sad, troubled, anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, stuck, or unfulfilled, I provide a supportive, confidential and open-minded space to explore your difficulties. Working together our purpose is to realise new understandings and ways of being so you can live a richer more fulfilling life. No subject is off limits.

I offer a holistic approach that sees body, mind, emotions and spirit as inseparable aspects of being, all requiring care and concern. I will not impose fixed ideas or concepts but I will do all I can to facilitate your search for understanding and help you find your own meanings.

Life takes various paths, often leaving us in unexpected places. Therapy provides perspective, makes sense of what has happened and provides a basis for moving forward.

I believe that respect for the individual, understanding and being real are important qualities for therapy.

I have extensive experience of working with adult clients and in particular with anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder (GAD), stress, relationship issues, depression, anger, bereavement and loss.

Alongside my private practise I work for an affordable counselling service for adolescents and young people in Henley-on-Thames.

What to expect

I offer an initial consultation to discuss your situation and decide whether my approach is right for you. If you decide to start therapy, a regular weekly session time will be agreed and reserved for you.

I offer time-limited and open-ended therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am accredited by the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and a registered Member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and the SEA (Society of Existential Analysis). I abide by their Codes of Ethics and Conduct.

I have a Foundation and Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy from Regent's University, School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology, London.

I have been trained in different models of psychotherapy including psychodynamic, relational, humanistic, attachment and cognitive behavioural therapies. However I primarily work within the existential tradition, which explores being human and all that entails.

I am currently continuing my training in Autogenic therapy with the British Autogenic Society ( BAS) a simple but profound holistic method for reducing the stress response by rebalancing the Autonomic Nervous System.
