"Sometimes you don't realise the weight of something you've been carrying until you feel the weight of its release." Anon. At times, we all need to talk but may struggle to find the right person to turn to. Those closest to us may not always be able to offer what we need. This is where therapy may be helpful. Someone to listen to you without passing judgement or giving advice; someone who believes you know best what you need and who can provide you with a safe, confidential place to explore those needs.
It’s so important to find the right therapist, someone you feel comfortable speaking to in order to build a rapport. My work is psychodynamic, examining connections between past and present to help you to explore your motivations, emotions, behavioural patterns and to increase self knowledge.
If you find yourself struggling to cope or make sense of an emotional difficulty please give me a call to discuss how I might best support you. It can sometimes be hard to reach out for help but I often find once the initial contact has been made clients often comment they wish they had acted sooner.

I am a Jungian Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Art Therapist with over 25 years of experience working in the NHS (CAMHS) and private practice. I am a member of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and The Society of Analytical Psychology (SAP). My approach is psychodynamic, analytic, and relational. I believe that each person is unique in how they experience life and its inherent dilemmas, conflicts, and traumas. I offer psychotherapy, counselling and art therapy for individuals, couples, families, children, and adolescents, both in person and online.
I understand that it can be very stressful for you to talk about your own issues or share your distress with someone else. After all, we are all encouraged to ‘keep going’. I strive to create a warm, safe, comfortable and therapeutic space for all my clients, which is a blend of the treatment room I work in and the atmosphere I create. I will provide you with both non-judgmental acceptance and empathic support. I listen to my clients intently and explore your inner world thoughtfully, whilst drawing on and sharing my insightful understanding to help you to make sense of what’s happening.
Do you feel like your life has aspects to it that are holding you back from enjoying it more fully? Do you worry that you may be experiencing depression and are unsure about seeking help? Does uncertainty fill you with fear and make you feel anxious or worry a lot about something specific or different things? Do you perhaps feel stuck in a rut because something happened and you just can’t move on from it? Are you an over-thinker or have intrusive thoughts or perhaps experience panic? Do you find yourself getting easily angered or irritated or have habits that are unhelpful or self-sabotaging? I have success in helping with these.

If you are reading this there is a chance that you (or someone you know) may be experiencing some emotional difficulties. In my personal experience, counselling and psychotherapy can help with a wide range of problems related to life and living. Many of us don't know why we feel unhappy, lacking in confidence or generally anxious. Some experience anxiety in relation to situations where other people seem to cope without a problem. Sitting down with a trained therapist can help alleviate distress as well as uncover the self-defeating patterns we may have stumbled into as a consequence of life's events.
Feeling stuck in your emotional life? Your tried and tested strategies for coping aren't working? Or has there been a significant life event that has caused distress or made you re-evaluate where you are and where you are going? Has your doctor recommended Cognitive Behavioural Therapy? Talking through your difficulties with an Accredited CBT Therapist can help to reduce emotional distress by developing alternative thoughts, behaviours and feelings. By developing flexible attitudes and behaviours you can cope more effectively now and in the future. These skills build resilience to manage challenges. They are transferrable.
I work with adults and young people from 14 to offer support for both everyday emotional wellbeing issues such as anxiety and depression and with more complex mental health issues. I also offer help with adverse life experiences including the impact of trauma and loss. I offer a private space to reflect, make sense of experiences, to be heard not judged and tools to help you feel calmer, cope better and make changes. My safe supportive approach enables exploration of your needs so you can begin to feel more resourceful, achieve greater clarity and move forward.
I practise from a psychodynamic perspective which has its roots in psychoanalysis, the founding approach to talking therapy. This means I am interested in helping people to be curious about themselves, to understand why they might think, feel or behave in certain ways which are often unconscious, and to understand where these patterns might come from. This involves you and I building up a trusting relationship that would enable you to bring anything (thoughts feelings, fantasies), however unusual or nonsensical, you want to talk about with me.
At times, our experiences and emotions can feel overwhelming. This can impact us physically, emotionally as well as psychologically. Over time, this can have consequences for our day to day lives, relationships and work. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can provide an important, safe, confidential space to gain insight of our ourselves, our experiences and our difficulties. This can involve receiving help to identify, and work through, the underlying events, relationships, beliefs and fears which may be causing destructive patterns as well as feelings of being stuck, frustrated, lost and empty.
Do you feel alone and misunderstood? Do you feel there is no one you can talk to who will keep your confidence and understand how you are feeling? If you make the decision to come and see me, I will offer you a safe, confidential and supportive environment where you can speak freely and where you will be listened to without judgement. An environment where you can be yourself and where you don't have to pretend that everything is OK. Making the decision to come for a counselling session is the first positive step in improving your mental health.
I am a clinically trained psychodynamic psychotherapist, qualified to Master of Science level (Birkbeck, University of London). Working in NHS primary care, through a London-based GP practice, for several years, I have helped patients from many backgrounds, nationalities, ethnicities, religions, genders, and sexual orientations with the internal, and often, unconscious conflicts that have negatively impacted their emotional and mental well-being and that prevented them from living their everyday life to the fullest.
We all have troubling problems at times, be they emotional, personal or work-related. Sometimes these problems can feel overwhelming and we become stressed, anxious and unhappy. This can affect our confidence handling relationships, making decisions and generally, our ability to just cope with the pressures that each day brings. Reaching out to an experienced therapist will enable you to talk openly about your concerns and be listened to without being judged. For many people, this is a profound way of bringing about positive and lasting change.
Hello and welcome. I'm a qualified counsellor that is passionate about mental health and well-being and I'm committed to making a difference to my clients' lives. Suffering from emotional or psychological difficulties can feel overwhelming and is often debilitating. Life can be complicated and cruel and we can often feel hopeless, confused and out of control. There are times when life can just become too much and the smallest things can get to you. I understand the prospect of counselling can seem daunting, however talking to a counsellor is the first step towards change. You don't have to struggle alone.
Sometimes it's hard to know what to do with our difficult thoughts and feelings and this is when counselling can help. I'm an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working with couples, adults, young people and children. In a safe and confidential space, both EMDR therapy and counselling offer you the chance to feel accepted and understood. Feeling supported to think and talk about what is going on for you is the first step to being able to move forward. Counselling means that you do not have to work it all out on your own. I will be there to support, guide and help you.
We come to therapy for a myriad of reasons some of which may be; Anxiety, depression, stress, grief, relationship issues, low confidence, low self-esteem, bullying in the work place and there are many more. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy simply talking can be tremendously helpful. If you have never experienced counselling or psychotherapy before, you may not be aware of the positive effect talking to someone who is trained and experienced in listening attentively and responding effectively can have. I can offer this to you in a safe, comfortable and confidential space.
I am passionate about helping people who are going through rough patches in life because of a sudden change, social isolation, a difficult relationship or a loss. In these moments people's confidence and self-esteem get affected and the way they see themselves and the world can change dramatically and their mental health is affected. Some have a harsh voice telling them that they are a failure; others may feel unloved or so low that it is hard to do anything or their anxiety is almost paralysing. I believe that everyone has the right to feel happy, secure, confident, satisfied.
