About me

I am a sympathetic counsellor and psychotherapist, available to work with individuals, couples and families. Some clients come to me in a crisis, others have a sense they would like to get more out of life.

My clients have issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and bereavement. Whatever your concerns, I match my approach to your unique needs and situation. We can work in a way that is brief and targeted, or longer and open-ended. I have a wide range of skills and approaches from which to draw and aim to help you understand your thoughts, feelings and behaviour so that you find new ways of approaching life.

I am fully qualified and have extensive experience of working with individuals, couples and families, in the NHS, in general counselling, in bereavement and parenting work.

If you would like to explore whether counselling/psychotherapy is for you, please phone or email in confidence. I offer a special reduced rate for the first session.

My practice covers the areas of Highgate, Dartmouth Park, Hampstead and surrounding areas.
