About me

I offer psychotherapy and counselling in Harley Street, London W1, and Henley-on-Thames, South Oxfordshire.

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 help you find understanding and meaning.

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, young people and students, and in particular with anger management, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, stress, panic, depression, trauma, low self-confidence, low self-esteem, relationship issues, family issues, depression, phobias, bereavement and loss.

In addition I offer Autogenic Training, a simple but profound self-help technique to rebalance the bodies physiological stress response and reduce anxiety.( www.autogenic-therapy.org.uk)

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.

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

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