I work with individuals - and teams - to support them to step out of patterns that no longer serve them and others well. Given the realities of our current world - constant change, distraction, uncertainty and hybrid ways of working - anxiety levels are rising, people feel more isolated, often becoming more sedentary as well as less engaged with those around them, the space that I provide enables clients to find ways to manage these challenges more effectively, to build resilience and wellbeing, enabling them to step into a way of being that supports them to thrive.

Hello and welcome. I'm a non-judgemental therapist who offers a confidential space where you can feel safe, understood and trusted as you start to explore the reasons why you feel the way you do. I have considerable experience working with anxiety, depression, panic disorder, family/relationship issues, loss, low self-esteem, work-related stress, and addictions (alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex and internet). I have many years experience of working with 12-step programmes. I continue to work with clients online, but am also beginning to see clients face to face in my lovely rooms in Richmond (under Richmond Bridge) and Fitzrovia, W1.

Trying to make sense of things can feel hugely overwhelming. A feeling of knowing deep down, things need to be explored. I believe therapy should provide you with a supportive space to call your own. A space to feel comfortable enough to explore those inner most parts. To unpack, process and try things out. To reflect and reframe.

Low mood and anxiety can be overwhelming and can end up stopping you live the life you want to. Sometimes problems feel intractable and you can have a sense of helplessness which affects everything you do. Talking it through with someone can make such a difference. Finding some perspective, feeling heard and understood in a safe, non-judgemental environment can enable you to face some fears, gain acceptance, feel empowered and move to where you would like to be.

I am a fully trained BACP Registered and Accredited Counsellor with 20 years of experience in working with adolescents and adults. In my approach I believe that we all have potential for a change and growth. Our natural, human urge is to survive and thrive even in times of total chaos, when trapped in a vicious circle, when lacking motivation and being overwhelmed with despair and negative feelings. In trusting, therapeutic relationship, based on empathy, understanding and lack of judgement we can talk through what we are experiencing and increasingly choose how we respond to the issues and challenges we face in our lives.

People come to counselling for many differing reasons. You may have recently experienced a crisis in your life, such as bereavement, loss of a relationship, trauma or illness. Or perhaps you are less clear about why you are finding it hard to cope, you might be feeling anxious, stressed or experiencing unpredictable emotional swings but not be sure about why this is happening.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
