About me

I work in helping people with anxiety and depression, addictions, relationships and other counselling issues, in a solution-focussed way as a United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) Accredited Contemporary Psychotherapist. Contemporary Psychotherapy is an approach that combines and utilises the main effective models of psychotherapy to rapidly assess your situation and therapeutic needs, and define your desired outcomes. The timeframe to achieve your outcomes is appropriate to you and your needs, and is flexible to allow attendance in patterns different from the traditional same time every week.

My personal approach is down-to-earth, clear and reassuring; I aim to explain things in an engaging and understandable manner. The therapy aims to activate your own inner resources, as well as highlighting external resources you may have overlooked and could make more use of. This means that while there is a typically a focus on making changes in the present, the contribution and influence of the past is acknowledged and growth and healing are fostered through an appropriate attention to past events and relationships.

I have worked in private practice for nine years in east and central London, and also worked for over four years as counsellor for a GP practice in west London, working with a very diverse and challenging range of GP patients, providing invaluable clinical experience.
