About me

Based in London, I am an experienced accredited therapist and a qualified supervisor working with addictions, anxiety, relationship difficulties and anger management.

Currently taking on NEW clients and offering Online therapy

I work with individuals in one to one personal therapy as well as with couples in relationship counselling. I can help you to have greater insight into the cause of your suffering, or present difficulties, so that you can lead a more positive and happier life.

I have worked with people to help them overcome the following:

  • Trust issues, in relationships
  • Fear of abandonment
  • Addictions (substance and behaviours)
  • Overcoming the hurt of affairs
  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Codependency
  • Managing endings
  • Stress
  • Shame
  • Pornography

I am an integrative practitioner. That means that I draw upon a broad spectrum of psychotherapeutic knowledge and tune my approach to match the uniqueness of each individual I work with. To be integrative means being flexible in my theoretical approach depending on the particular needs of the people I see so that I can best help each person I see.

I can draw upon the most effective tools and techniques from a number of schools and traditions including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Humanist (Person- Centred and Gestalt), Existential and Transpersonal.  

I have a commitment to ongoing professional development so that I am continually updating my skills set and challenging my own conscious and unconscious biases.  I also seek to improve my performance by adopting the principles of deliberate practice.  See a summary of the recent short courses I have undertaken under the training, qualifications and experience section.

I offer a brief telephone chat in the first instance if you feel that this would help you to decide whether you want to meet me.

I can also offer tailored training to your organisation on ways of working with addicted clients (drugs, alcohol, internet, sex/pornography, gambling and social media/smartphone) as part of a CPD programme.  I hold a current enhanced criminal record certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), formerly the Criminal Records Bureau (CRB).
