About me

I am a BA hons, PG dip, qualified Psychotherapist available for appointments in my Fulham, South West London and Guildford, Surrey practices as well as online (Skype) and telephone counselling sessions. I have 10 years' experience working for the Priory hospital group, where I continue to practice today.

I help adults with issues such as anxiety (including phobias), depression, low self confidence or self esteem, relationship, abuse, stress, work (including redundancy), personality disorders (including BPD), addictions (including sex), suicidal thoughts, pregnancy, birth, and infertility.

I work with adults, couples and groups in a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Couples counselling, Psychosexual therapy, Psychodynamic therapy, Humanistic therapy, Solution Focused Brief therapy, Mindfulness, Integrative therapy, Existential therapy and Psychoanalytic therapy.

I offer a free initial 30 minute telephone consultation in order to ascertain whether therapy would be suitable for the individual and to establish an initial working rapport.

Thereafter, during the first formal session, I establish the client's unique needs and tailor a bespoke programme using relevant psychotherapy techniques. This integrative approach emphasises the uniqueness of each client and is well established through years of experience.
