About me

Imagine being able to talk about what's bothering you to someone who won't judge you or try to "fix" things or make you feel you could be a burden. My job as therapist is to listen without judgement and to work with you at your own pace. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, workplace stress, relationship issues or loneliness, going through a major life transition or simply feel stuck and want a way to move forward. I can offer a calm, supportive, confidential space where together, we can explore your difficulties, self criticism and negative thoughts and behaviours and enable you to achieve a happier, more satisfying life.

I am an integrative therapist and counsellor, which means I draw on a number of therapeutic approaches and find the best and most appropriate way to work with you. Depending on your needs, I offer short-term counselling to deal with a specific issue, and longer, more open-ended work.

Issues can be hard to face alone and it is good to talk things through. To find out whether you feel I can help you, please contact me via phone or email to arrange an initial meeting. In this session, we can explore what's bringing you to therapy, a little about your background and the practicalities of working together. I can see you either in Bloomsbury, (4 mins walk from Holborn station), Chancery Lane, or Queens Park, NW6.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Middlesex and an Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the Minster Centre.

I have a particular interest in managing a balance between life and work, and stress and emotional wellbeing in the workplace. Prior to becoming a therapist,I had a successful career in advertising and marketing, and have experience and understanding of working in a challenging, deadline-led environment. Aside from my private practice, I have worked within a wellbeing service at St Charles' Hospital and in Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust at St Mary's hospital in Paddington as a staff counsellor, in their staff stress management service, dealing with issues both personal and related to the workplace.
