About me

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

Humans have an an amazing capacity for change. Knowing ourselves is the key to unlocking that capacity.

As a psychotherapist, I am keenly interested in how our current-day lives have been shaped by formative past experiences and unconscious processes. Within this framework, I take a tailored approach to each client, allowing the needs of the individual to guide my work.

I am experienced in providing both short-term and long-term therapy, covering a range of issues with a straightforward style. I have worked extensively with trauma and abuse, depression and anxiety, relationship issues, chronic illness, reproductive issues (infertility, pregnancy, bereavement), and have a strong interest in cultural identity issues.

I offer face-to-face sessions (including early morning and late evening availability) at my office practice at Chancery Lane, Holborn, (WC1V) as well as flexible FaceTime/Skype sessions. I also have availability on Saturdays.

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