About me

Addiction, codependency, relationship issues, trauma, stress, burn out, loss, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem - whatever your reason for considering counselling or longer term  psychotherapy, I provide a safe and calm environment and offer 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 also offer online and telephone therapy sessions, if you travel extensively or if you live outside London.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified therapist with specialist training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and 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 different psychological 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 have a private practice in both central London and Notting Hill. As a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapy (BACP) 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 of working in the music industry and I work with artists and music industry executives around such issues as anxiety, depression, burnout and self doubt. I also work with creatives from across the artistic professions.
