About me

I practice Gestalt psychotherapy, which focuses on present-centered awareness as a means of exploring your process in relation to both yourself and others. This does involve exploration of the past, but only so far as it feels relevant and lively in your present life. Central to this approach is my belief that we are all the expert in our own experience, and that only you can know what is the best choice for you from moment to moment.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist with an MSc in Gestalt Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute in London. I have several years of experience working both privately and in the charity sector, with a range of psychological and emotional issues including anxiety, depression, loss, and relationship issues. 

I have a particular interest in health as a holistic, embodied experience. I am also a Health Coach, certified by the College of Natural Medicine - we can weave elements of this into the psyhtoherapy work if you wish. I also offer clinical supervision and walk-and-talk/ outdoor psychotherapy.

Prior to becoming a therapist I worked as a freelance commercial solicitor and I maintain a small legal practice alongside my therapy and coaching work.

Additional information

All sessions have a fee of £100.

When I work

Daytime only. Evening and weekend slots are offered on an exceptional basis.

Further information

I work online via Zoom and face to face at my practice in New Cross, 7 minutes walk from New Cross station and a 10 minute walk from Deptford or New Cross Gate stations.

At our first session, we can discuss your reasons for seeking therapy, how we might work together and your hopes and expectations for our work. Should you decide to continue, I usually suggest starting with at least 8 sessions, at the end of which we would have a review. For some people this will be enough, and for others they may wish to continue and go deeper into self exploration and relational insights.

My advice to clients looking for a therapist is to find someone you feel at ease with, who you get the sense of being able to trust and build a relationship with over time.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Sessions are on the 2nd floor of a residential building, accessible by lift.
