You may be feeling depressed, anxious or just feeling bad in your day to day life. You might have a clear idea of what is causing the pain, or you might not have been able to pinpoint where all this started. These difficulties can affect your work, your family life and your relationships with others.
I would like to help with that.
When people email or text me, I start by asking some basic questions to give me an idea of what is going on for them. After that, I do a free first session in which we talk through the issue in a bit more detail and put together a plan to tackle it. From there, we often work on things that can be changed immediately before tackling bigger issues.
The idea is to get you feeling better as quickly as possible.
I have done postgraduate training in online work and have experience with clients from multiple continents, backgrounds, gender identities and presenting issues. I try to work with people in ways which allow them to participate in both the therapy and the choice of what we are working on because I see us as equal partners in the process. We will talk through your issues and then see where they might be coming from. Sometimes this is recent but often, it relates to a period in your life that might not be immediately clear. Together we can make those links and then work out what to do about them. As a specialist in working online, all of my modalities are adapted specifically to this medium. It is common to use emails and time in between sessions to make the best use of the sessions themselves, so that you begin to see progress early.
Because it is impossible to understand what a session will be like by reading a statement like this one, I offer a free initial consultation session to every client so that they can see for themselves what working with me is like and decide if it will be helpful for them.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked for many years with the UK's National Health Service (NHS). I delivered long term psychodynamic therapy at St Pancreas Hospital and then later, in the Increasing Access to Psychological Therapies scheme delivering targeted, short-term, evidence-based therapies in South London.
I set up in private practice so that I could offer longer-term, in-depth therapies to clients which is often not allowed on the NHS. Eventually, my love for technology led to my specialising in Online work as this allows me to reach and help a wide and diverse audience, without geography being a constraint. I studied postgraduately to specialise further in Online therapies and coaching and have adapted my style to the video chat and text-based systems used online.
I have now worked with people across multiple continents, time zones, backgrounds, identities and presenting issues.
