Hello! My name is Hannah and I offer a safe, kind and experienced space for people looking for some help with their mental health, life circumstances and/or relationships. Life can be so hard when you're feeling stuck and the last few years has really taught us how resilient we can be... but also that we all need help from time to time.
My approach is integrative which means that I have the ability to draw from lots of different therapies to find the right fit for the person. This way of working can include structured therapies like cognitive behavioural therapy, compassion-focused therapy and mindfulness-based approaches, or more exploratory approaches such as narrative or psychodynamic therapy. I usually find a blend of both is what works for most people. In my couples and family work, I use Emotionally-Focused Therapy.
Therapy is a journey where the road can often seem a little uncertain. It’s my job to help guide that journey in whatever way you need. What is certain is that taking time for yourself in a safe and experienced space will bring about changes in the way you understand, think, feel and behave in your life and with others. It might be that you’re looking for strategies to overcome certain patterns you feel you’ve become stuck in. Perhaps you want to process events that have happened in your past or maybe you want help navigating difficulties in relationships. Perhaps you don’t know what you want but just that you need something! My sessions will focus on helping you to draw and build upon the resilience and life skills you already have to give you the tools to manage the difficulties of life. For me, the aim of therapy is to enable and empower clients to live better, happier, healthier lives and for them to move on from therapy with confidence and health.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at University College London (UCL) as a Clinical Psychologist and have worked for around eight years in the National Health Service (NHS), voluntary, private and charity sectors. I have wide-ranging experience of providing therapy on a one-to-one and group basis, working with families and providing consultation and training to professional organisations.

Concessions offered for
It can be difficult to seek help and I hope to ease this by offering a safe environment with no obligations. Connection is key to effective therapy; in an initial consultation we would discuss what has led you to seek help and explore whether my approach is the right fit for you.
Initial consultations and sessions are available on a sliding scale between £100-130. Couples and family consultations and sessions cost between £130-180. Please feel open to email me to discuss your needs and we can set up a consultation.
I offer online therapy from 4pm-10pm weekday evenings. I have limited space for new clients - feel free to email me to enquire and if I do not have space, I can put you on a waiting list.
Please note that my practice operates via video-call only.
