About me

I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist and I am a member of the:

BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council)

TSP (Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists)

BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy)

Alongside my private practice, I have also worked as a psychotherapist in the NHS and other mental health organisations for many years. I provide both short and long-term therapy and I have experience of working with complex trauma. I work with individuals on a range of issues including relationship difficulties, life changes/transitions, anxiety and depression.

How counselling and therapy can help.

Life can be complex and challenging and at times we all need support to process what is going on and navigate our way through it. You may have been living with emotional distress or conflict for some time or perhaps it is something more recent. You maybe struggling with a specific issue,  or you may not know what is troubling you but have a sense that something is stuck or missing. Or perhaps there is a wish to understand yourself better and a desire for change.

Whatever brings you to therapy, I provide a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space where we can think together about your current issues. 

As well as giving you a space to unburden yourself,  my approach is an in-depth one which also seeks to understand how your current issues maybe related to previous life experiences. I believe by becoming aware of these links, we can find new ways of navigating difficulties and move forward.

What to expect in your first session.

The first session, referred to as a consultation, is an opportunity for us to think together about what has bought you to therapy, for me to learn more about you and also for you to ask any questions you may have about therapy and how I work. Most importantly, the consultation provides an experience of what it might be like to work together.

If you decide you would like to continue with therapy, subsequent sessions will take place at the same time each week. Each session will be for 50 minutes.
