About me

I imagine you're reading this as you’re thinking about therapy and whether it could help you in these challenging times - perhaps your relationships, your career or maybe life in general is on your mind as you wonder if it’s possible to change things for the better and how to begin.

A talking therapy is one of the routes available to you when you’re looking for positive change in your life - it can support you in understanding, in change and in development, to help you improve your mental health and your well-being.

Psychotherapy affords a deep exploration of issues be they long-standing or more recent. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) offers solutions for acute, specific problems. I work with both methods, which depends on what would suit you and your needs best.  Some further information on each is below.

Whichever method is decided on, I work with you focussing on what’s happening for you and why, perhaps why it keeps on happening if you’ve noticed things repeating.  I’m interested in your concerns, you and your story.

As an experienced, fully-qualified therapist and counsellor I offer a confidential space for us to meet [currently just online] and to work together regularly.  I work with a wide range of issues (including but not limited to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties) but am most concerned with what is bothering you.

I have been meeting with clients for over ten years retraining after over twenty years in HR in The City, media (tv and publishing), charity and IT-security sectors. These roles have given me a good understanding of the challenges and pressures which are experienced when at work and when not.

Daytime and evening weekly Zoom and phone sessions are available with charges between £70 and £85 - depending on when we meet. 

I’m an experienced, accredited and regulated therapist (by UKCP and the FPC) working in the online space. I hold postgraduate diplomas in Psychodynamic Theory & Practice from WPF and the University of Roehampton . Additionally, I hold the Tavistock & Portman NHS Foundation Trust’s Understanding Trauma certificate.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch and have your questions answered.  Ifi you'd prefer a call, drop me a line and we'll arrange one.  

I look forward to hearing from you.  


1) Psychotherapy aims to understand a person’s internal conflicts and how they may impact on feelings, behaviour and relationships. These conflicts are believed to stem from childhood experiences, past events, with people often unaware of their lasting impact and reach. Psychodynamic psychotherapy aims to uncover and explain these internal conflicts and reduce their impact on everyday life allowing you to understand yourself better and start to create change.

You and your therapist work together in confidential conversation to discover and understand these conflicts and what is happening in your life.  Psychotherapy considers that insight / self-knowledge is an essential condition for lasting recovery and change so the conversation may cover a wide range of topics..  A trusting, consistent relationship with the therapist allows you to gradually recognise emotional and behavioural issues which are causing problems.

2) In CBT work we focus on distinct, current problems looking for triggers and so develop practices which can positively impact you day to day.  There is regular work for you to do between sessions working on the change you wish to effect and embedding it in your life.  The between session work is always agreed between us not imposed by me.
