About me

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."

I believe in the innate, self-determined power of individuals to create profound and lasting change in their own lives. The most powerful tool I can provide as a therapist is an authentic and safe relationship to facilitate that, through guided exploration, support and challenge. Using a straightforward style, I take a bespoke approach with each client, allowing your needs to guide our work.

My orientation is primarily psychodynamic - I am keenly interested in the formative and sometimes unconscious experiences which shape our current day lives. However I am also heavily influenced by somatic, cognitive and existential approaches.

I have worked extensively with trauma and abuse, depression and generalised anxiety disorder, emotional detachment/emptiness, domestic violence, relationship problems (affairs, betrayals, divorce), chronic illness, reproductive issues, bereavement, and have a strong interest in cultural identity issues. I am experienced in providing both short-term and long-term therapy. My practice is also trauma-informed, intersectional, and supportive of non-heteronormative/nonconforming ways of living/being.

My office is centrally located at Chancery Lane, Holborn, (WC1V), where I also offer early morning and late evening availability.

I also offer FaceTime/Skype therapy, which can be more convenient for people with limited time or availability.

I offer a reduced fee initial consultation at £45, allowing you to discuss the issues you'd like to focus on, and to decide if I'm the right fit for you as a therapist. Please feel free to text/email/call me to arrange a consultation session.

Following on from the first meeting, sessions are weekly, either short-term or longer-term. Fees are £65/hr.

I offer a limited number of concession slots - we can discuss your personal circumstances if this is of interest

More About Me:  I come from a 20yr background in social services. In my spare time, I enjoy running, art and independent music gigs.
