About me

I am a BACP and UKCP accredited psychotherapist with nearly 20 years of experience in clinical practice. I’m qualified to work with both individuals and couples. I offer psychotherapy in a safe and confidential environment, providing non-judgemental support to help clients explore the concerns which have led them to seek help. I have worked with a wide range of issues and with clients from all walks of life. I have a warm and empathic approach which allows clients the opportunity to explore their concerns freely and in depth.

I worked for many years in an NHS psychotherapy department in East London and then became the in-house therapist in a large GP practice in South London. I have been the lead therapist for several mental health charities, have worked in a private hospital setting and at the Tavistock Relationship clinic.

I have qualifications in both integrative and psychodynamic psychotherapy and combine the two approaches in my work. Sometimes our early experiences can have a powerful effect on shaping our view of the world as we develop and become adults. We can feel trapped by long held beliefs which may be unhelpful and lead to negative and repetitive feelings and behaviours. We can also be affected by current situations, events and relationships. Considering past experiences alongside present problems often helps to bring into focus how difficulties have arisen. Reflecting on these issues can help to re-assess the present and approach the future in a more positive manner.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have extensive experience in working with LGBTQ identified clients and understand how the unique pressures which are often experienced can place individuals and relationships under enormous stress. I have worked as a therapist for several LGBTQ organisations and offer a supportive space to explore all gender and sexuality issues.

I also have many years of experience working with individuals and couples in the entertainment industry and in high profile positions. This work has ranged from stress management to addiction issues and the problems associated with living under public scrutiny.
