About me

Concerned about stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement and loss, post-natal depression, conflicts at work or other issues that are getting in the way of your life? Why not contact me for a free, confidential chat to see if therapy might help?

Therapy can offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore these difficulties and where they have originated, to find ways to change patterns of behaviour and to lead a more fulfilling and happier life for you and those close to you.

I work with adults on a one-to-one basis, generally in weekly 50 minute sessions, in open-ended therapy or in time-limited work with a fixed number of sessions generally to focus on a particular issue that needs urgent attention. In an initial session or two we can decide what type of therapy best fits your needs. We do not decide how long therapy will last - that will depend on you and your needs and we keep that under review as we go forward.

I work on a wide range of issues with women and men. I have a special interest in issues around parenting such as post-natal depression; still birth; miscarriage; infertility; fears around pregnancy and birth; parenting challenges and so on.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified as a pyschodynamic psychotherapist. In addition to running my private practice, I have worked for several years as a Women's Health Counsellor at a major London hospital in a service attached to the maternity and gynaecology departments.

Previously I have worked as a human rights lawyer, a Citizen's Advice Bureau advisor and a mediator.

I am accredited with the BACP, the UKCP and the FPC and work according to their Codes of Ethics and their professional requirements, especially as to supervision and Continuing Professional Development.
