About me

I offer a dedicated time and space where you can talk in confidence, will be listened to without judgment and taken seriously. 

I'll encourage you to pause, take a step back and reflect on the path of your life thus far; to be curious and compassionate (not self critical) towards yourself. Therapy offers a broader perspective on whatever is troubling you now; enabling you to focus, understand yourself better and see current difficulties with more clarity and depth helping you to discover your best way forward. 

Trained as an integrative psychotherapist, I tailor how I work in response to each individual, their personality and needs. 

We're all unique,  I think we each have far more emotional and psychological resources than we realise and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood by another person helps us to discover and tap into our inner strengths. 

I was a Bereavement Counsellor in an NHS hospice for over 5 years and am particularly skilled and attuned to work in this field.  My experience includes working with those who've suffered traumatic bereavements such as a suicide, accident, death of a child.

I'm also experienced in working with people who bring a wide range of other issues to therapy, for example:

  • Generalised anxiety disorder
  • panic attacks
  • Loss
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Depression
  • Family difficulties
  • Low self-esteem
  • Unresolved issues from the past
  • Life transitions (retirement, divorce, redundancy, illness)
  • student concerns (e.g. exam stress, adapting to university life)
  • sexuality
  • long term illness

I offer long-term ongoing psychotherapy and time-limited work (6-10 sessions), I'm also experienced in working long term with psychotherapy/counselling trainees from training institutions across London.
