About me

I provide therapy and coaching for emotional, psychological or relationship issues. Based in central London, Farringdon, offering both focused crisis or symptom focused interventions (CBT, Coaching, Motivational Interviewing) as well as longer term psychodynamic psychotherapy. Coaching is a value tool for optimising developing both within your personal and professional life; there doesn't need to be a problem to get better - to be better.

Key Areas: Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Issues, Addictions, Stress, Trauma as well as work/career related issues.

Specialist Areas:

  • Personality Disorders; primarily using Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT) and Schema Focused Therapy (SFT).
  • Therapy and guidance to carers of people that suffer from either mental health or personality disorders.
  • Therapy and Coaching for Creatives and Activists



Training, qualifications & experience

I am a London based psychotherapist and coach working in private practice as well as inpatient services. I offer assessments and psychological therapy to adults, couples and families. The clarity and direction of an initial assessment and treatment planning can be itself be valuable, even without continuing with our service.

As a psychologist I'm experienced in the assessment and treatment of depression, anxiety, addictions, personality disorders, relationship difficulties as well as trauma and mental health issues. I have a particular interest in supporting careers as well as gifted and talented individuals.

You don’t need to have a "disorder" to benefit from support. Therapy and/or coaching can help with daily struggles, difficulty coping, relationship issues, feeling out of control as well has with defined disorders.

My Approach

I use a dynamic, grounded and consultative approach to address directly what is needed. This has shaped a therapeutic understating of the range of emotional and psychological difficulties.

In addition to the core training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, I have training in several specialist therapeutic approaches such as Mentalization (MBT) to practitioner status, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Schema Focused Therapy (SFT), PCT (Person-centred Therapy), Mindfulness-Based approaches and Family Therapy.

These are effective treatment methods for supporting struggles, Coaching adds a personal growth and problem-solving dimension that can truly enhance a development process.

I have a working understanding of Existential, Narrative and Transpersonal practises which is of great value in our multi-cultural context.

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.

Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Storm's Edge Therapy Offers Specialist Therapy For:

Performers: Actors, Musicians, Dancers, Comedians, etc.
Creatives: Writers, Artists, Designers, Directors, Choreographers, etc.
Campaigner and Activists: Animal Rights, Political, Human Rights, Aid Workers, etc.
Gifted and Talented

We feel that these arenas have specific needs, a level of intensity and unique underlying dynamics warranting specialist interventions.

After supporting creative people through institutional systems, I identified the need to shape a service around their unique needs, lifestyles and goals. This led to Storm’s Edge Therapy aimed at providing a focused service for people at the creative forefront of an ever changing society.
