About me

I am an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor with a leaning towards my existential training. I have worked in a wide range of clinical settings and with all ages. My experience also includes time working in the NHS in a doctor's surgery.

I have full training and accreditation in working with couples, relationships and all types of sexual issues - for men, women or both - and I work with individuals and couples of all sexualities. I also try to balance out my therapeutic time working with individuals facing with difficult life issues and challenges.

Just some of the areas I have experience with are: bereavement; anxiety; addiction; food and eating disorders; work related stress/issues;  teenage issues; communication; self-esteem and self-concept; obsessions, compulsions and phobias. And if there's something not on this list, just ask.

I have rooms in the West End (Oxford Circus), London Bridge and I also see clients in my home in Finsbury Park and I work in Hertfordshire - both the St Albans and Letchworth areas.

Training, qualifications & experience

I began my working career as a school teacher and them moved on to being a school psychologist/counsellor. I then spent quite some time in marketing/communication. So I know the landscape - the pressures, stresses and challenges of both the educational and corporate world.

From my undergraduate years I have a BA (Hons) in Psychology as well as a Diploma in Education.

I also hold a Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling and a Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship therapy. At present, I am writing my Ph.D in psychotherapy.

I am an active member of a number of professional bodies (SEA, COSRT, UKCP) and am the COSRT spokesperson on Men's Issues. I am also a contributor to a number to relationship and advice columns in major newspapers, write for a relationship App and work with media companies interested in exploring the challenges facing modern relationships.

I have experience working in the NHS, low-cost therapy providers, major therapy clinics, bereavement services and hospices, youth counselling centres, specialist relationship and psychosexual centres as well as many years in private practice.
