About me

Skilled integrative counselling psychotherapist with many years experience in private practice and NHS services. I offer short or long term psychological treatments for individuals and couples. I work with a wide range of concerns, for example psychological adjustment during and/or after separation and divorce, relationship issues, loss, depression or other. I work from exclusive office based in ESHER (limited availability). Daytime or evening appointments.

My aim is to provide a welcoming and safe space for you to explore and to reflect on the challenges that you are facing, without fear of judgement or criticism. You can discover how to create better relationships with others and you will explore what might be directions in your life that would give you (and others) most personal fulfilment.

In couple work the therapeutic space can offer a platform for better communication, whereby both partners are listened to with respect and treated equally so they can investigate their relationship from a position of neutrality. Sometimes couples find difficult to use words to express their feelings because of fear of not being heard by the other in the right way. I use creative couple work to help unlock existing blockages, enabling partners to express and to hear each other’s point of view. By going through the process partners often discover how to awaken their inner passion.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold an Msc in psychotherapy. In my clinical work I am influenced by psychoanalytic approaches. I maintain my training by regularly attending relevant and most up to date courses.

I have extensive experience of working in various adult mental health services within the NHS or the private sector.
