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, such as feeling anxious, depressed, frustrated, stressed, confused, sad, angry, stuck, or in pain. I believe that transformation ultimately comes from within and I will support you in finding ways to make positive change. I take an integrative approach to my work, using elements of specific therapies to best suit you, including Transactional Analysis, CBT, and Person-Centred therapy.

I have particular skills in working with emotional difficulties such as relationship issues, stress, anxiety, and codependency. I have specialist training in working with addictions - both substance and process - and addictive personalities.

I am also a certified life coach and can help you identify goals and work with you on strategies to attain them, in a bid to live your best life .

Prior to becoming a therapist I worked as a publicist in the music industry for many years and so understand from personal experience the specific pressures of working in this profession. I regularly work with musicians, music industry professionals and individuals working within creative professions.

I also offer online therapy sessions, if you cannot find a suitable local therapist or if you are travelling.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a BA Honors degree in psychology and a Post Graduate Diploma in Addiction Psychology and Counselling. I am a BACP registered member.

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

I am also undertaking Level 1 training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy which is very effective with trauma.

I am also a certified life coach and yoga teacher.

I have a private practice in central London.

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.
