About me

I am a fully qualified analytic psychotherapist (Guild of Psychotherapists) and counsellor (BACP accred.) and have been in private practice in north Kingston for over 20 years. During this time I have worked extensively with people who have brought many different forms of the difficulties that may be experienced during a lifetime, ranging from evident crises to more generalised feelings of disappointment and discontent. Each person brings something unique and that is the place from which we begin when we first meet to discuss whether we are going to commit to work together.

If you wish to know more, please visit my website ( or leave a message on my answerphone. I always do my best to return calls within a few hours.
