About me

The world is changing and trying to cope with this level of uncertainty can be challenging. Finding an outlet for voicing your fears, frustrations, anger, or hopelessness could help lessen distress.

Taking the first step and talking to someone when you're feeling lost is a courageous step to take and one that can bring relief.

I think of myself as an ally and facilitator in your exploration. There are no complicated techniques - just a conversation between two people that is honest and exploratory, as well as caring and respectful.

I bring energy, warmth, sensitivity and frankness to my client relationships; together we can try to work towards a deep understanding of your experience, looking at your situation from different perspectives and new angles, so that you can reach some clarity.

I have fifteen years experience of providing therapy for people from all walks of life with all sorts of problems. I have worked for the NHS, including providing counselling in GP surgeries. My original background was a senior role in the corporate world, so I understand many of the pressures and expectations of the workplace as well as maintaining a balanced family life. I am also a lecturer in psychotherapy and counselling at Regent's University where I did my own training in existential psychotherapy.

Who do I help?

I have experience in helping people with a variety of problems, be that anxiety, sadness, lack of self-esteem, loneliness, relationship difficulties or a feeling that things are not quite right, that meaning and purpose are missing. Whatever the concern, I can listen and support you on your journey towards a more fulfilling life.

As well as providing therapy for individuals, I also offer counselling for couples - if you feel that you would like some help in working out what is happening in your relationship and what to do to repair the partnership - then I can facilitate better communication between you without the blame that can hinder a resolution. Often just being able to understand each other's feelings rather than blame each other can help to deepen your relationship and mend any rupture.

How to get started?

The next step would be to email, text or telephone me (07855 554519) with any questions you might have, and to set up an initial appointment. The initial session is for us to discuss what brings you to therapy, what you would like to get out of the sessions,  any anxieties and questions you may have as well as finding out if we can work together. There is no obligation to continue.

I provide both long term therapy and short term therapy, sometimes you may need as little as six weeks to gain some insight and feel you are on the right track, sometimes many months; whatever you feel is right for you, you decide.

I have also worked at Edgware Community Hospital as an honorary psychotherapist for eight years and, more recently, I have been the lead clinician for three years, in GP surgeries, specialising in short term goal oriented therapy. I have also volunteered for various organisations.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

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.

UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

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.

Areas of counselling I deal with

Other areas of counselling I deal with

An area that I have particular expertise in is providing support for people who feel lonely because of a lack of relationship in their lives. It may be that they have been too busy at work to spend much time working on their relationships, or that they just do not trust themselves to find someone who will understand and accept them. Whatever the reason for being alone and wishing it were different, it is worth exploring whatever is holding you back. Maybe there are possibilities once people start looking for them. Get in touch and we can look together.

Further information

What is existential psychotherapy?

As an existential psychotherapist, the focus is on relationships, what is flourishing, what is failing, what choices we are making - or avoiding. Sometimes it is easier to pretend than face the distress we are in, explore the causes and tackle our troubles.

Problems may be longstanding, or they may occur out of the blue because of a crisis, sometimes they are difficult to define - something just 'isn't right'. Whatever the cause, finding a way to express it to the right person will help.

One of the most valuable aspects of therapy is that we don't have to pretend; we are free to be ourselves, to explore the way we are living, the choices we are making and to face our disappointments and frustrations in a safe and non-judgemental environment. We have the opportunity to deepen our understanding of ourselves and the situations we are in so that we have the possibility of making a positive difference in our lives.
