About me

I offer psychotherapy and counselling in a safe and calm environment, providing confidential, non-judgemental support to help you explore the concerns and difficulties that have led you to seek help. I aim to support and guide you in exploring negative beliefs and blocks that may be holding you back from leading the life you want. We will work together to challenge self defeating behaviour, identify goals and find increased motivation to change. Sessions are tailor made to meet your needs, integrating the right psychological approaches for you. I adhere to the BACP code of ethics and I work with integrity and compassion.

I have particular skills in working with emotional difficulties such as codependency, relationship issues, stress, burn out, loss, anxiety and depression. I have specialist training in working with addictions - both substance and process - and addictive personalities. I also offer online therapy sessions, if you are travelling and would like continued support.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified therapist with specialist training in addictive processes. I came to this work through my own therapy journey, which began over 20 years ago.

My training and practice is relational and integrative, drawing on elements from Transactional Analysis, humanistic, and behavioural theoretical models and approaches to therapy, and tailored to your individual needs.

I have a BA Honors degree in psychology and an MSc in Addiction Psychology and Counselling. I am also trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy which is very effective with trauma.

I am currently completing my sec ond Masters degree in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Institute.

I have a private practice in central London and as a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy I am bound by the BACP's Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Before becoming a psychotherapist I worked for 25 years as a publicist in the music industry, orchestrating press campaigns for bands and artists and working closely with them, their management companies and record companies. I understand the pressures and stresses of working in the music industry and it is not surprising that mental health issues such as anxiety and depression are so prevalent. Due to my 'insider knowledge' I am particularly happy to work with artists and music industry executives.
