I offer Psychotherapy and Counselling as well as Drama Therapy. I have a special interest in Eating Disorders.
I work in a traditional way, sitting and talking through difficulties, and can also introduce and integrate creative and action-based methods if the client wants to explore different forms of expression, release and understanding.
I have encountered a broad range of issues that have brought people into therapy over a period of 17 years working in a variety of settings including at St. George's Hospital on the Eating Disorders Unit and Cotswold House Eating Disorders Hospital, with those struggling with their eating, body image and feelings of isolation; at the Priory, Roehampton with people needing support and understanding for feelings of anxiety, depression, self-harm and unknown feelings of discontent; at a GP's surgery and in private practice.
I have a particular interest in those who struggle and feel at odds with their body. Those who don't feel at home in their bodies, including those with eating disorders and feelings of being fat and inner turmoil. Those who feel that they are driven by needs and impulses that are contrary to how they want to be. Psychotherapy and Drama Therapy can be helpful for people to gain an awareness of these conflicts and provides a space where a deep exploration of the self can begin to happen. I am also very interested in people who feel lost or stuck in their bereavement and other losses such as the breakdown of a relationship.
I look forward to hearing from you.
