About me

I offer long and short-term psychotherapy and counselling to individuals, couples and families.

I work with a wide range of concerns such as bereavement, illness, divorce, depression, anger, anxiety, phobias, self-esteem, relationship problems, trauma and PTSD. I have a particular interest in adolescent and family relationship difficulties and peri-natal issues, especially post-natal depression. I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, trained in a range of modalities. This allows me to provide you with emotional support that best suits your needs, whether it is exploring the relief of current symptoms or perhaps taking a longer term look at your life history and understanding how you came to be the unique person you are.

I also offer assistance with employment related issues such as career coaching, career and organisational change, redundancy, workplace stress, relationship difficulties at work etc. I can help prepare a thorough analysis of work and life experiences, taking a psychological approach to understanding how to make informed and constructive changes in your personal and professional life. I am also a qualified Architect and have had international senior management and Board level experience.

No matter which issues you chose to explore, you will receive confidential, compassionate and thoughtful support.

Training, qualifications & experience

I qualified in London at the Regent's University School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology, with an MA in Psychotherapy and Counselling and then an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy.

I am registered member of both the UKCP and the BACP.

I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Applied Systemic Theory from the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust.

I have undertaken extensive CPD training at The Anna Freud Centre in child and family related programmes.

I have worked in private practice for 16 years and have also worked in the NHS, MIND and in a CAMHS MOSAIC team with families and children with complex disabilities.

I am also a qualified Architect, with an MA from Princeton University in the USA. I have worked as a Design Management Consultant in London and was appointed to the Board of Directors of a design company, part of media group WPP, managing a multi-discipline design group in several countries.
