About me

Are you affected by stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement, loss, miscarriage, still birth, ante-natal anxiety, post-natal depression or conflicts at work? Are you in crisis or perhaps you have been unhappy about your life for a while without knowing why nor how to fix it? Are you lost, lonely and struggling to sustain good relationships?

Why not contact me for a free, confidential chat to see if therapy might help?

Therapy offers a safe, non-judgmental and private space to explore your difficulties, where they might have come from and how to change patterns of behaviour and have a more fulfilling and happier life and sustain better relationships with 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 (a fixed period of time 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. How long therapy will last will depend on you and your needs; 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 my private practice, I am a  Women's Health Counsellor at a major London hospital in a service attached to the maternity and gynaecology departments.

Previously I have been a human rights lawyer, a Citizen's Advice Bureau advisor and a mediator and I bring many of these skills to my therapy work.

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