Finding a therapist that "feels right" can be a daunting prospect at a time when you may already be feeling overwhelmed. I offer a space that is safe and without judgement, where you can start to make sense of your feelings. I am interested in how we relate to each other and what makes us connect as human beings. Working relationally, I take notice of what happens between us as this will reveal something of your relationships with other people. I believe that once we gain a better understanding of our experience and what motivates us, we can make new choices, rather than being driven by old patterns of behaviour.

The choice to start psychotherapy may come for a variety of reasons. Becoming aware of repeating patterns of behaviour, struggling in personal and professional relationships, coming to terms with a particular traumatic event, or with feelings of depression, lack of purpose and meaning. Ultimately, there will be a unique reason for each person. Whilst my work takes into account the influence of the past onto the present, it also places as much attention to the future and to the fact that in the present psychological suffering there may be the potential for a meaningful new direction.

There are many reasons why we enter psychotherapy, such as at times of unhappiness, difficulty or crisis. We may be struggling in our relationships, experiencing low self-esteem or suffering from a loss of meaning. Relational and developmental trauma symptoms can undermine our ability to fulfil our potential and/or form secure connections with others. Because our wounding often takes place in relation to another it follows that so too can our healing. My intention is to offer a compassionate, attuned and empathic presence, which can support a shared enquiry into your authentic experience, within a safe and non-judgmental space.

I support high achieving professionals and entrepreneurs who think and feel more deeply than others - what I call ‘Sensitive Achievers’ to break free from high-functioning anxiety, overwhelm, stress and self-doubt so that they can start feeling calmer, confident, good enough and reach their potential. After 11+ years working in the therapy and coaching industry, having worked with 1000’s of clients including members of the global royal family, I discovered that to truly create freedom from high-functioning anxiety, overwhelm and self-doubt, a powerful combination of evidence-based therapies, tools and coaching is required.

I'm good with patients who have some sense of an 'un-lived life'; and how this holds you back from living in the present. You might feel you have a chronic form of mild to moderate depression. We can explore this, learn more about its true origins and begin to see how this depression is keeping you hostage; obstructing you from living well today.

Hello and Welcome, Life has indeed become complex. Many of us are now struggling with our mental health in ways that are no longer manageable. Our past and present hurts, our unprocessed feelings have risen to the surface. We find ourselves thinking, feeling and acting in ways that do not reflect who we want to be. Some of us have Grief, Trauma or Addiction that we just can’t seem to work through. As a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist with a Master Degree and EMDR Accredited, I've seen thousands come through my door, with various presenting issues and undergo genuine transformation, healing and leave with hope for the future.

"Depression is the common cold of psychopathology and has touched the lives of us all" (Dr Martin Seligman). In my 20 year experience as a CBT therapist I have learned that Seligman is right - everybody will experience at one point in their life depression, anxiety or another form of mental health problems. Some of us will manage on their own, some of us will need help. Seeking help for stress and mental health problems should not have any stigma attached to it - it is one way of dealing with the impact of living in an imperfect world.

Is something holding you back from living the life you want to live? Do you question why you keep repeating the same patterns? When emotional problems arise it can be difficult to know where to turn and pressures to cope can leave us isolated and desperate. My aim is to help you explore your feelings, thoughts and emotions and the affect they have on your behaviour and mood. I see the therapeutic process as a collaborative one, with the two of us working side-by-side to develop your inner resources, improve awareness of yourself and your relationships with others.

I offer psychological therapy and counselling sessions to clients with a wide range of mental health problems. There is no one-size-fits-all. I believe in creating a safe space for transformational conversations that will help you move forward through the challenges that you are facing. I hold an open mind when asking about what a person requires help with and strive to identify strengths alongside areas they are struggling in. I provide tailored evidence-based psychological interventions which draws from cognitive behavioural therapy, attachment theory and systemic practice to help you find your own ‘fit’.

Thank you for visiting my page. I am currently working online only. Life can present us with many challenges, some of which may be harder to deal with than others. I work with clients who have/are experiencing depression, anxiety, bereavement, addictive behaviours, and abuse to name a few, which can leave us feeling blocked, hopeless and unaware of what to do. I use an integrative approach to therapy which includes, gestalt, person-centred, psychodynamic and CBT therapy to deepen awareness of these blocks and to help you make a healthy change.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in St. John's Wood, London?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 St. John's Wood, 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.
