About me

I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and trained with The Arbours Training Programme in London 20 years ago. I have also trained at The Tavistock for work with couples. During the training and in my private practice, I have worked with patients suffering from anxiety, trauma, depression, relationships difficulties, bereavement, eating disorders, self-harm and bi-polar disorder.

I set up my practice to provide a resource for people who feel they need help with the mental challenges they are facing - empowering them to gain a better understanding of themselves and their lives. Psychotherapy offers possibilities to explore what is within your power to change and to be reminded on a fundamental level that you have choices.

How you feel from day-to-day, your mental state, the patterns of your behaviour, your actions and the decisions you take, are all connected to your past experiences going back to your childhood. They determine the person you are today. You may be tired of the same patterns in your life and relationships, coming up time and again and feel that you need to seek professional help with these issues.

Therapy provides a space for you to begin to make connections between the past and the present, to help you see how some of the things that you feel, do and say are not driven by your conscious thoughts and feelings, rather by unconscious feelings. It can help you to understand the parts of you that sabotage your best efforts. If you have a better understanding of these connections, you will gain more control over them.

Your first meeting is treated as a space to think, reflect and talk about your reasons for coming to therapy and for me to listen. The session will give you the opportunity to ask questions and explore the process.

I work with adults, adolescents and couples.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also offer therapy for adolescents. This may be shorter term as there could be issues that adolescents specifically want to focus on and once they feel they have addressed them, they are ready to move on.

I also work with couples for couples therapy and marital or relationship problems or breakdown.

Fees

Session fee £50. Some concessions are available depending on your circumstances.

Further information

I work with individuals, with couples and with adolescents.
