About me

"Therapy was literally life-changing and what I learned remains with me today. I don’t think I could ever really articulate the level of gratitude."

It's not easy choosing a counsellor.  I'm here to make the process easier.  If you're experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work related stress and/or a general sense of existential malaise, I may be able to help.  

I understand it can be difficult talking to a stranger about your personal life.  It's important to know that person will treat your concern with empathy and respect.  If you choose to work with me, I will try my best to help you feel at ease.  

I offer a friendly and engaging service, perfect for beginners and more experienced clients alike.  I'm not here to be critical or to judge, so you can be certain I'll always be on your side.  

We all make mistakes - that's part of what it means to be alive.  The key is to learn from those mistakes to avoid making them again.  In essence, I'm here to support you as you attempt to make sense of your own life. 

The clarity you will gain from counselling will help you to make better (more informed) decisions incorporating both conscious and unconscious factors.  I do not believe there is a person alive today that would not benefit from such insight.  

For your peace of mind, I'm registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council - "the UK’s leading professional association and accredited public register for psychoanalytic psychotherapy"

My Walthamstow based practice is only a few minutes’ walk from Lloyd Park and very well served by public transport.  It is a 10 minute walk to Walthamstow Central and the 97, 34, 357, 123 and 275 busses all stop nearby.  

If you would like a conversation about how I could potentially be of service to you, please click the “Email me” button above.  I aim to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours, Monday - Friday.

Testimonials:

"Therapy was literally life-changing and what I learned remains with me today. I don’t think I could ever really articulate the level of gratitude."

"Many thanks for all the work you have done with me over the past year and a bit. It’s been so helpful and at many times fruitful."

"I wanted to write to say thank you.  Today I’m getting married.  I have come to find happiness with myself, and now, with someone else.  So thank you."
