Hi, I'm a clinical psychologist with over 17 years' experience of helping children and adults, in the NHS and private practice. I have worked with children and families with a wide range of issues, including low mood, anxiety, challenging behaviours, emotional dysregulation, friendship difficulties, issues at school, relationship issues within the family, neurodiversity, and self harm and suicidal ideation. I also have experience of helping children and parents where there has been significant change within the family, such as bereavement, illness, divorce or separation.

I’m a Clinical Psychologist, working with high achievers who struggle with high functioning anxiety, self-confidence and self-esteem, burnout, stress, and relationship difficulties. If on the surface you look like you have it all together, but the silent voice of self-doubt plagues you, then we will likely work well together. I like to work with the heart of a matter, rather than treat symptoms at a surface level. I work with both adolescents and adults, and have over 13 years experience in mental health. I have a fantastic team of Psychologists working with me, and we also specialise in ADHD, ASD and ADHD assessments.

With all the complex challenges of modern life, anxiety and depression are on the increase. Seeing a psychotherapist/counsellor can provide a calm, safe space where you can find the support you need. Whether you are seeking short term counselling, or longer term psychotherapy, together we can explore whatever may be troubling you. Perhaps you are in need of a sympathetic person to talk to, someone who will listen without judgement to any difficulties you are experiencing in your life or relationships. You may be suffering from low self-esteem, or unexplained panic attacks. I will work with you in the way that suits you best.

You might be experiencing difficulty in relationships in general or in one relationship in particular, or finding work a challenge, or maybe you are unhappy about the quality or direction of your life. Perhaps you are feeling flat or low, stressed or anxious, or even quite desperate. Exploring and expressing your thoughts and feelings with a professional can help make sense of these difficult experiences, and allow space for solutions and opportunities to arise. I aim to offer you the best support I can for this process, with a respectful, sensitive, honest and empathic approach.

Do you long to experience some peace, freedom and self trust around food? I believe this should be a birthright for everyone. If you are feeling out of control around food and concerned about the size or shape of your body, I get it because I've been there. I now use my professional and lived experience to help others find their way out of the prison of binge eating. I'm sure you have tried many times to gain control of your eating and maybe you're at a point where you're thinking there must be more going on than simply not being able to stick to a diet. Is therapy the answer?

I believe that emotional and psychological distress is a sign that life or social circumstances are preventing us from achieving our goals. I would create a warm therapeutic space for us to explore together the barriers that are preventing you from leading your best life. I believe that each person whether young or old has huge potential and resources to change. I would listen carefully and challenge sensitively offering up new perspectives and possibilities for growth. I hope that you will build on our sessions so that you can approach life with more clarity and ease.

I’m not here to judge or offer advice. I’m here to listen and to help you navigate the changes you want to make in order to grow and move forward in your life. I can support you to consider how your past experiences inform you today and how they might impact your future. This allows the therapy to be a creative and collaborative process; I'm an advocate of no one-size-fits-all. I work ‘integratively’, which means that I integrate a wide range of therapeutic approaches. I adapt my approach to align with you and what you want to gain from therapy.

I qualified as a therapist in 2007, and later as a Transpersonal psychotherapist. I work in full time private practice and provide one to one psychotherapy. I am also an accredited member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. As well as offering face to face appointments, I also see clients online, both in the UK and internationally. My experience of having worked with clients online over a number of years, is that it can provide an effective means of working at depth and supporting real change. Many of the approaches I use within a face to face context have been successfully adapted.

Our lives can sometimes feel overwhelming. Therapy is a time and a space to be heard, to build awareness, strength and spontaneity. The conversations between client and therapist are unique and precious. Beyond techniques, tools and training, research shows that a successful therapy tends to be based on a relationship, on trust, collaboration and true listening. As a psychotherapist, I am inviting you to explore your own story, in the presence of an attentive and reflective fellow traveller. I work both in English and in French, with clients from diverse countries, ethnicities and cultures.
