Have you hit rock bottom? Do you feel you can't stop worrying? Are you afraid of losing your temper? I can help you overcome depression, anxiety, anger or relationship issues. I offer a friendly, professional and confidential counselling and psychotherapy service to support you in times of crisis or difficulty.
I can help you gain a better understanding of your issues and offer you tools and techniques to deal with specific problems. This can enable you to make positive changes to your life, gain greater self-esteem and live your life more fully.
I have particular experience working with anxiety and depression, anger management, work and family issues and bereavement and loss.
If you would like to talk with me about how counselling/therapy may help you, I can offer a free introductory meeting with no obligation.
I have my own dedicated and comfortable therapy room which is conveniently located in Camden Town, NW1 - a couple of minutes’ walk from Mornington Crescent tube station and four minutes from Camden Town tube station (both on the Northern Line).

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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Selected Client Feedback
"I want to thank you for your support and presence in my life over the last 3½ years. Just like I've been exploring my identities in our sessions you have been, for me, at times an armband, a sage, an older sister, a confidante and a listener.
I appreciate the space you have created to allow me and others to bring our truest, most vulnerable selves to sessions - and, for me, to test things, behaviours, ideas out in safe surroundings. I appreciate your amazing memory for details, coming back to those little nuggets I drop in conversation, and how you let there be silence. I appreciate your hypnotherapy training and the frameworks you've given me to help with decision making. And I appreciate how you're helping me to be more in the driving seat of my own life.
Thank you - so, so much.
This card isn't meant to signal any significant sort of ending, I just wanted to write it before I felt like it was 'necessary' to say something.
Thank you for all the hours of training, supervision, thinking, feeling you've gone through to become the brilliant therapist that you are."
"Thank you so much though for your guidance and insights, they have genuinely been so enormously helpful and, my current situation aside, have made me feel much happier and more relaxed. I know that all I've learnt through our sessions will stand me in good stead for the future. I will always feel very glad of all that counselling showed me and taught me and I appreciate that very much. Thank you for everything."
"Thank you for all your help, support and guidance during our time working together. I really appreciate everything we have worked on and discussed, whilst also realising that I am responsible for my own happiness."
"This is just to say thank you for everything you did to help me 'know myself' and make so much progress in my relationships with others, and me. I had never had counselling before but your sessions opened my eyes to its value, and no wonder I carried them on for so long."
"Opening up to you helped me a lot and I miss talking to you now. Thank you for being there for me."
"I really appreciated the opportunity to explore counselling with someone as kind and sensitive as you have been."
"I want to thank you for the time you have spent with me. I feel much better."
