I specialize in Adult ADHD, Burn-out at Work, Anxiety, Depression, and Life Transitions. I have been practising for over 30 years and offer services for individuals, couples, and families both face-to-face and online.
I also offer Coaching for Work related issues, Parenting, and Goal setting.
I practice in French and Spanish as well.
I believe in an individualized approach which includes an integration of a variety of therapies. There is not just one way of approaching everyone. I place emphasis on client strengths and your issues are viewed as life's challenges that call for new and innovative solutions. Fostering an empathic trustworthy relationship is paramount as well as maintaining full confidentiality. We work in partnership and I see my role as a facilitator of that growth.
My practice is conveniently located in Maida Vale, next to St John's Wood and Marylebone and a stone's throw from Central London.
I comfortably offer Skype or Facetime sessions recognizing that the world has changed.
Clients move, change jobs, have limited time, have increased expectations to perform, and look for the option of continuity once our relationship involves trust and engagement.
My clients have a choice of long-term or time limited work depending on their need. A client may elect to do a piece of work, and return later to work on another issue.
Once we have an established and positive working relationship, my door remains open to additional services.
Before our initial consultation, I will have a brief intake telephone conversation with you at which time we discuss your main reason for contacting me, my office location and schedule, as well as fees and insurance information.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an accredited registered member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by its code of ethics. I am also fully licensed in the USA and Netherlands. My formal training was acquired in the USA, I lived for 11 years in the Netherlands, and have now opened a private practice in London.
I believe that for me to offer the highest quality service to my clients, it is important to attend conferences on a regular basis. As an experienced therapist, I am in constant contact with new developments in the USA and Europe through international conferences and associations. I share the latest developments with clients when appropriate or useful and recommend guided reading.

If this is your first experience seeking therapy or coaching it is sometimes difficult to take the first step which includes an intake call and scheduling a session.
It is important for you to feel comfortable, understood, and open to working on your issues after coming to your first session even though you realize this could put you out of your initial comfort zone.
The benefits of counseling and coaching are limitless. Viewing an issue from multiple sides and recognizing the impasses and options are essential to being able to move forward.
For clients who have experienced therapy/coaching before, you may be looking for a different approach now and therapists differ widely in their expertise and training.
