I am a Relational Psychotherapist working with individuals, couples, groups, and companies, promoting mental wellbeing. My private practice is in west London, (located on the borders of Chiswick, Hammersmith and Shepherd’s Bush) working with clients on a broad range of issues.
I work in an empathic, confidential and non-judgmental way. We will focus on building a therapeutic relationship to facilitate the trust and confidence required for you to manage both past and present issues.
I provide either short or longer term therapy, depending upon your needs. I draw on a range of psychotherapeutic styles catered to suit each individual client.
What to expect
For individuals and couples, I suggest an initial session at my standard fee, lasting 50 minutes for individuals and 60 minutes for couples. In this session, we will discuss and agree on how we can best work together, the frequency and duration of the therapy sessions and the desired outcome. Usually, sessions will be held on a weekly basis during the same time slot each week.
If this is your first time considering therapy, we can have a brief telephone conversation to talk through the process. Just drop me a text, email or call and we can arrange something.
My role as a senior clinical consultant for the leading mental health charity Mind and my experience managing and setting up counselling services (Mind and Headstrong) as well as my experience gained with an international employment assisted programme organisation, has positioned me to work with a diverse cohort of clients affected by unimaginable tragedy as well as trauma associated with everyday life.
I have experience working with many conditions and concerns, including – but not limited to – low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, sexuality, identity, bereavement, grief, anger management, couples, and relationship difficulties.
I have experience with Personality Disorders such as Bipolar, Borderline, Anti-Social, Obsessive Compulsive and Schizoid. I am trained in Transactional Analysis therapy and draw upon Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic Relational models in my work.
I have over 15 years of experience working in the creative arts world in a senior management capacity. Over this time, I have gained tremendous insight into the world of leadership and management. I understand work-related issues such as stress, performance anxiety, and managing teams. I also work for organisations who have experienced company trauma, going in and assessing and providing therapeutic interventions for staff, the support offered is 1-1 and/or therapy groups as well as ongoing wellbeing support for management to rebuild after event based tragedy.
