About me

I am an experienced, fully qualified therapist and counsellor, with consulting rooms in central London (City EC4 ) and in West Hampstead, where I offer individual therapy sessions online as well as face to face at convenient times.

As a therapist/counsellor I have wide experience working with men and women of all ages, who have come into therapy for many different reasons including stress, anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, trauma and abuse, sexuality and bullying, eating disorders, life crisis and breakdown.

I offer a safe confidential place to talk and work through painful experiences and feelings and think about the possibility of change.  Alternatively I offer online sessions.

Low cost sessions are available for individual circumstances.

I am happy to arrange an initial conversation to discuss what's troubling you and how I might help.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at WPF, one of the leading psychodynamic therapy organisations in the country, and am fully qualified as a psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor.  As well as my private practice, I work as an honorary psychotherapist in the trauma service of NHS Tavistock and Portman. 

I am accredited by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and a registered member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
