About me

Counselling & Consulting Sessions for Adults

Whatever difficulty brought you here – it’s important. Let’s talk about it.

I know that sounds pretty cliché for a psychologist to say but talking about it might help you – a lot.

Few things are more natural than wanting to talk about your difficulties with someone who can offer you a safe, confidential space.

I run a private practice in London, offering adult counselling and/or consulting sessions, depending on what you would like to achieve during our work together. My approach changes with every client who walks through the door because I believe therapy must be uniquely tailored. I am very passionate about my work and wholly committed to offering you a confidential platform where your difficulties can be freely expressed. It can be hard to pick up the phone sometimes, but if you are ready, I am always happy to have a chat.

A few examples of what my clients have brought to the consulting room:
- "Anxiety about socialising"
- "Blushing phobia"
- "Depression"
- "Hate my job but I don't know how to leave"
- "Don't know whether to stay in my relationship"
- "I feel like I am crumbling under life's pressures"

School & University Graduate Sessions

I also offer sessions where I help clients uncover and work towards career goals. Some common phrases I hear from clients are:

- "I have a degree but I still can't find a job"
- "My degree doesn't seem to mean anything to employers"
- "I chose not to go to university but I regret it"
- "I have no idea what kind of job to go for"
- "I haven't discovered my ultimate passion"
- "People tell me to do something I love so work becomes a hobby - help!!!"

Please note, my appointments for graduate sessions are currently full. Please visit this space for updates.
