My Approach

I provide an open, accepting, non-judgemental space where we can work together to explore, and make sense of, your own unique lived experience and the challenges you face – your concerns, choices, goals, the meanings you ascribe to the events in your life and how you relate to yourself and others.

Rather than look to apply preconceived ideas or theories, I am curious about you and your experiences - your thoughts, feelings, difficulties and vulnerabilities. In this way, I hope the therapy process will enable you to better understand yourself and open up the ways in which you see yourself, allowing you increased flexibility, freedom and choice in how you react to the world, and others, going forwards.

Although your past is by no means unimportant, I believe that therapeutic change comes about at the level of the present, in the process of exploring what you are experiencing in the moment, within the therapeutic space (as it relates to yourself, the world and other people, including myself). My focus is not on the past as the cause of your difficulties, but on how you can project yourself forward and find ways to live better.

Please get in touch if you would like to explore working together. I will aim to respond within 24 hours.

I offer an initial free online consultation of up to 30 minutes in which you will be able to tell me about yourself and why you are seeking therapy. We can also discuss any questions you have and how we might work together.

About Me

I see clients both in Radlett and in Islington, near Angel tube station, My rooms in both locations provide a comfortable, quiet and calm space, and are easily accessible by bus and train, or by bus and tube, respectively. There is parking available outside in Radlett. I also offer online sessions, if you are unable to attend in person. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are typically held weekly, at the same time each week.

In addition to my private practice, I have worked in a number of counselling and therapy settings, including a drug and alcohol recovery service, a low-cost psychotherapy service and a mental health charity. I have also had a long career working in professional services firms in the City, experiencing first-hand the affect such high pressure environments can have.

My initial training included psychodynamic and humanistic modalities, after which I specialised in an existential psychotherapeutic approach. As well as being a full accredited member of the UKCP, I am also a member of the Society for Existential Analysis (SEA) and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
