Feeling overwhelmed, stressed, or looking for support? Struggling with depression, anxiety or a recent loss?
Private therapy offers you the chance to explore your challenges with someone who is independent and non-judgemental
I am the Founder and Director of Vitus Wellbeing and am pleased to have an expert team of specialist Psychotherapists working with me. If I can't help you personally, I'd be happy to match you with another therapist who can. Our highly sought-after team are skilled in working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.
I work on a one-to-one basis with adults and adolescents (of secondary-school-age and above) through Vitus Wellbeing in South West London (Fulham / Putney) and online via video calls. I also manage the day-to-day operations for Vitus Wellbeing - my London-based therapy service that offers expert support to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families.
Alongside my practice, I have consulted for The Priory Group in Harley Street and in Roehampton for many years. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and abide by their guidelines.
As an integrative practitioner with a friendly approach, I use theory and techniques from psychodynamic, person centred and CBT teachings to best support you and your needs.
I have considerable experience in working with:
Anger, anxiety, abuse (adult, child, sexual, domestic, physical, financial, emotional), bereavement, bullying, career dilemmas, depression, dream interpretations, exam stress, family struggles, identity crises, ill-health, infertility or pregnancy complications, low self-esteem or confidence, panic attacks, relationship difficulties (whether romantic, professional or friendships), sexual difficulties, stress, trauma and feeling lost in life or without direction
Personal therapy gives you the space to explore your challenges with someone who is independent and non-judgemental.
Our sessions are confidential and I always practice with discretion and respect for you and your concerns.
I see many of my clients online via Zoom.
If you'd like to work remotely, there's no need for you to be based nearby - I work with clients across the country and overseas.
I see my face-to-face clients in my suite of therapy rooms in Fulham, South West London.
My practice is on the top floor of Hurlingham Studios, just a minutes' walk from Putney Bridge Underground Station (served by the District line and numerous bus services).
Easily accessible from Barnes, Chelsea, Chiswick, Earl's Court, Fulham, Kensington, Kew, Hammersmith, Mortlake, Parson's Green, Putney, Roehampton, Twickenham, Victoria, Waterloo, Wimbledon, Central London and other surrounding areas.
Therapy sessions ideally take place once a week, at the same time each week, for 50 minutes.
Therapy can be long-term, open-ended or short-term (for a pre-determined number of weeks or months), depending upon your goals, your budget or your other commitments.
Finding the right therapist isn't always easy.
It's important that you feel comfortable with your therapist. Contact me with any queries or to book your first session.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
