About me

Psychotherapy for Depression, Anxiety, Low Self Esteem and Eating Disorders

I specialise in therapy for anxiety, depression, low self esteem and eating disorders.  I am an experienced therapist, having helped many people overcome their emotional difficulties and enabled them to live a fuller life.  I am registered with the BACP as an Accredited Psychotherapist.

Anxiety, Depression and Low Self Esteem

If you are struggling with anxiety, depression or low self esteem, I can help you gain an understanding of what is causing these difficulties and teach you techniques to relieve your symptoms.  A short course of therapy can help you feel better quickly.  Following on from this, you may want to stay longer in therapy and work on the deeper issues causing your distress.

My style of therapy is integrative, which means I work with many different theories and techniques and I can tailor my approach depending on your needs.

Eating Disorders

My specialised therapy practice offers evidence based psychotherapy focusing around your eating behaviour.  Many people turn to food when they are unhappy, stressed or anxious and this can develop into a distressing eating disorder. Therapy can help you learn about your triggers and teach useful techniques for overcoming your issues enabling you to return to a healthy eating pattern.

I work with clients suffering with Bulimia, Binge Eating, Anorexia, poor Body Image and any other eating pattern that is causing distress.

I offer short term therapy, long term therapy and educational workshops.

How I work

Sessions are usually weekly and can be in person at one of my London based practices in Barnet, Oxford Circus and Moorgate.  Alternatively, I can offer remote sessions by Skype or FaceTime.
