I have over ten years experience of working with children, adults and families, aiming to help people explore challenging situations or relationships, toward understanding how particular difficulties have risen and help you work through this time. I specialise in complex mental health and support individuals and families who have been affected. I have seven years experience working with children and teenagers who have Learning Disabilities and issues relating to school. I also see clients for various other struggles and work collaboratively to explore what is behind their anxiety, depression and to build self-esteem.

I know how difficult it is to find a therapist you can trust for help with your emotional and psychological difficulties. Sometimes our suffering is concealed from friends, family or colleagues because we are good at hiding it but deep inside, we are left feeling far from happy, fulfilled or content. At other times our difficulties are more noticeable. I am passionate about helping people live better lives. I help them discover what matters to them, what type of person they want to be and how they would like to behave. Once their values are clarified I help them make sustainable changes towards the things that are important to them.

I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the HCPC, working both privately and within the NHS as a Highly Specialist clinician. I specialise in working with adults, who may be experiencing complex difficulties with mood, anxiety, chronic pain, trauma and their relationships. I am trained across therapy modalities, but primarily from a Psychodynamic approach. I currently have availability for remote sessions and offer both brief and open-ended therapy. I believe that people are doing their best with what resources they have available and, in some cases, there can be value in talking through a situation to resolve sticking points.

I have worked as a counsellor, psychotherapist and coach for almost 20 years so I have gained a very broad experience of people's issues and needs. I work with individuals and couples. I offer help and guidance into how we become more comfortable with who we are, where we come from and what we desire from our lives in the future....how we fit into the World. This may be as an individual or as part of a couple relationship. I find that anxiety and stress affect so many people in their working and private lives - especially presented with the challenges of trying to live happily in an immense city such as London.

The most important thing I can do for you is to help you understand yourself better, to know why you do the things you do and find certain situations difficult. I work with people who want to understand why they can't assert themselves, find enjoyment in life, make friends, recover from bereavement or the end of a relationship, why they get so angry, have addictions, obsessions and intrusive thoughts or why they don't know what to do about a partner who is controllling or abusive. Alternatively, I can offer EMDR, which is a treatment for trauma and other experiences from the recent or distant past which have adversely affected you.

Whether you are finding it difficult to cope, would like support for a specific issue or are feeling stuck, therapy can offer you a safe space to explore any difficulties with the support of a professional trained to listen and respond in an insightful, non-judgmental and caring way. You do not need to be in crisis to benefit from therapy, although it is fine if you are. It provides an opportunity to gain greater self-awareness and self-acceptance so you can make meaningful and lasting changes in your life.

As you read this profile, you are probably feeling ‘stuck’ in some way –maybe overwhelmed by grief, painful events, relationship breakdowns or difficult life choices. I believe this is when therapy can help. It gives you a safe, non-judgemental space to explore both the challenges you are facing and parts of yourself that even you might not feel very familiar with. From this, you can gain useful insights that will allow you to arrive at a point of clarity around your situation and the choices you may need to make to proceed in life. In our sessions you will have the freedom to explore whatever is troubling you, at your own pace.

Everyone's journey to counselling is unique. You may have a sense of being alone, feel hopeless, guilty or overwhelmed, but you might find it hard to pinpoint what in particular brought you here. Alternatively you may know exactly why you are here, but not have a clue what to do about it. I see clients who wish to discuss a range of problems that they are facing currently or have done in the past. Some of these have names that we are familiar with, such as depression, anxiety, stress low self esteem, trauma or abuse. For others there might just be a feeling that they can't articulate but know they need to address.

I use an integrative approach that focuses on developing a strong therapeutic relationship and working relationally with the issues you may bring. I hope to offer a space to explore any dimension of human distress you may be holding. For example, you may be struggling with sexual difficulties, experiencing challenges with communication, feeling alone, dealing with shame or a critical inner voice.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in London are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in London then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in London, or Child Psychologists in London.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like London psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in London specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
