I am a fully qualified existential psychotherapist with experience in a wide range of clinical settings.
I work with clients from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, ages, ethnicities and sexual orientations who may access psychotherapy for a variety of reasons, including bereavement, sexuality, self esteem, HIV, relationship difficulties, depression, childhood abuse, addictions and suicidal feelings.
Working form an existential approach, I believe that therapy is a relational and collaborative pursuit, an in depth dialogue informed by values of mutuality and compassion, aimed at empowering the individual in the search of their own truth, away from other people’s, often stifling, labels and expectations.
In addition to private practice, I have been active in the charity sector, including the Terrence Higgins Trust and I work as a deputy manager of a small organisation which provides bereavement support.
I am a member of the UKCP and the Society for Existential Analysis. http://www.existentialanalysis.org.uk

My fees are £50 for a 50 minutes session, payable at the end of each session either by cash or cheque. I hold a limited number of spaces at a lower fee for students and those on low income.
I have a one-week cancellation policy otherwise the session will have to be paid for. I may be able, however, to reschedule our session if I’m given enough notice.
I offer both short and long term therapy from my consulting room in Mortimer Street (5 minutes from Oxford Circus Station).
You can call me directly or email me to discuss briefly your expectations and needs. We can then arrange an initial session where we can explore more in depth how we can work together. If we decide to work together, we would review, at regular intervals, how therapy is meeting your needs and we can then reassess our goals, should that be necessary.
I work with some degree of flexibility, offering Skype or telephone sessions where appropriate.
