About me

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

PhD (University of London), Certificate and Diploma from the Chiron Centre for Body Psychotherapy. Ongoing continued professional development including training in working with trauma and attachment theory.

Further information

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.

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.
