I am an experienced UKCP-accredited body-oriented relational psychotherapist with a private practice in North London. I offer empathetic constructive support for relationship, work and identity issues. I do both short-term work, helping clients to deal with particular immediate issues, and long-term therapy, assisting clients on a journey of self-discovery, helping them towards understanding and shifting recurring behaviours which make life difficult for them, helping them towards optimal satisfaction in their relationships and optimal efficiency in work and artistic pursuits.
Social anxiety and isolation afflict an increasing number of people in our culture.The ongoing honest and direct communication and contactfulness of relational body psychotherapy are well-suited to addressing and alleviating these problems.

Psychotherapy is about emotional resonance. Empathy and rapport are essential preconditions for successful therapy.
I have many years of experience working with a wide variety of people, helping them to make sense of their lives and to find greater joy and satisfaction in their relationships and their work.
Therapy sessions always begin with talking - exploring your inner world in a safe and supportive setting. But being a relational body psychotherapist, I will often enquire into your feelings of well-being or not-so-well-being in your body. Therapy can include (when appropriate and with your agreement and understanding) expressive exercises and "hands-on" work such as vegetotherapy and biodynamic massage.
There are no magic cures. No therapist can "take away" your suffering. We will work together to facilitate and deepen your experience of life and to reduce the obstacles to straightforward communication, satisfying relationships and joyful living.
