About me

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist working with individuals, groups and couples.

I have experience in working with anxiety, depression, anger management, eating disorders, addictions, relationship issues, sexual assault, and work related stress issues.

With couples I deal with communication styles and relational and attachment patterns.

I am a registered member of BACP and I abide by their code of ethics.

I believe the broader purpose of therapy is to develop and expand our capacities for intimacy, awareness and spontaneity and I will work together with you to create a clear and non-judgmental working relationship in which you can explore whatever issues you bring.

Personal transformation often comes from a mixture of three therapeutic elements:

  • understanding your past in a new way;
  • new experiences (in the therapy room as well as outside);
  • and authenticity in the therapeutic relationship.


My role is to help you find a balance of these three elements which will work best for you.

Research has shown that therapy is most effective when the client and therapist establish and agree on goals together – so I will work with you to understand your therapeutic goals - whether that’s behavioural change or gaining more understanding of the conscious and unconscious beliefs you hold.

My background is in the arts and publishing and I enjoy music and travelling in my spare time.

If you would like to see me, please send me an email or call me to schedule the initial consultation. I offer a free initial 20 minute Skype consultation to discuss your expectations of therapy and determine whether we are a good fit.

My fee for individual work is £60 per each 50 minute session, and I see clients weekly. The fee for couples work is £80 for a 70 minute session.
