About me

Thank you for visiting my page at this exceptionally challenging time. I am an experienced Counsellor/ Psychotherapist and can help with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems, child-hood trauma, bereavement and losses. I provide an initial assessment session, free of charge, to see if we can work well together. The assessment is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.  You may be looking for an outside perspective to review your life-path, reassess your priorities or challenge your destructive patterns of behaviour. I would be very happy to talk over these issues with you. 

I work in a well - established group practice beside London Bridge station and offer both long and short term work.  Please contact me to arrange an initial assessment (on-line at present)

Training, qualifications & experience

I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy and have a post-graduate Diploma in Group- analytic Psychotherapy and a certificate in Counselling Skills, both gained at Westminster Pastoral Foundation which is recognised nationally for high quality training.  I am a member of the Foundation for Counselling and Psychotherapy (FPC) and the Group Analytic Society International (GASI).

In addition to my practice at London Bridge I am also involved in the clinical training of counsellors and  undertake organisational work in the NHS and charity sector including a therapeutic community for vulnerable children.

Further information

I believe that relationships are the cornerstone of a good life but there are often challenges and problems along the way, within the family, with partners, friends and in the workplace. There are always challenges associated with living and/or working in a vast global city such as London but that is especially true at the present time when there is much uncertainty about the impact of the pandemic and the future in general.  There are daily references to self-isolation in a health context but human relationships are always key to our emotional health and can come under pressure at any time.  Support from an external source may be welcome.

There is growing research evidence that the client/therapist relationship is the key to success in any therapy, regardless of the specific model. I aim to provide a supportive environment in which a trusting relationship can be developed, allowing you to explore your difficulties at your own pace. There will be an opportunity to work together on the challenges and to manage any difficult emotions.
