About Me

Have recent experiences left you feeling overwhelmed? I am a friendly, approachable, experienced Psychotherapist and Counsellor based in West London but working online during Covid-19. For online work, you will need a quiet space - indoors or out - where you can have privacy. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to psychotherapy and my approach varies to suit individuals. I am committed to a culturally-sensitive and ethical way of working.

At the heart of effective psychotherapy is a supportive, open and collaborative therapeutic relationship. Sudden life events can create high anxiety or a sense of disconnection from everyday life. It may feel important to find ways of reconnecting with what really matters to you, setting yourself some realistic goals to take you forward. Different perspectives on life will give your a renewed sense of energy and self-worth.

I have worked effectively with anxiety, bereavement and loss, loss of meaning, relationship difficulties, stress at work, depression and sadness, low self-esteem, anger, self-doubt, life transitions (such as retirement), redundancy, body issues, trauma and abuse, family estrangement, personality disorders, addictions and phobias.
My approach incorporates thinking from psychodynamic and relational psychotherapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness and body awareness. I work with individual adults age 18+.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I look at the roots of anxiety in both a client's history and in the body's reaction to stress in the present. Understanding the past is often not enough on its own to improve anxiety, and I take a holistic approach to managing symptoms in the present. Anxiety can sometimes be addressed using EMDR.
I have researched the impact of bereavement in adulthood (specifically the loss of an adult child). I am interested in the link between bereavement and other types of losses - including family estrangement.
I am trained in the trauma therapy EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) - i trained wtih Sandi Richman and then at the University of Worcester with Derek Farrell. I use EMDR online and in person.
