About

Perhaps you are grappling with something very specific - a bereavement, problems at work or in your relationship, addictive behaviours - or perhaps you are feeling depressed, uneasy, short-tempered and you don’t know why. Perhaps you are a couple looking to improve your relationship and communicate better. I offer a safe space where you can gain reflection on your problems and find better ways of coping. I am an empathetic, skilled, relational therapist with over 12 years of experience in the field of psychotherapy and counselling, with work including the NHS, the Metropolitan Police, Reading University and the Mindful Project.
I offer short and long term counselling and psychotherapy for adults, couples and other people wanting to work on their relationship (business partners, a person and their parent, close friends, for instance). I have specialist training in relationship therapy and particular expertise in supporting people around disordered eating and body image issues.
I am a firm believer in psychotherapy and its potential for bringing out change in peoples’ lives. I am consistently struck by how much people can grow given the right support, and enjoy witnessing clients become more connected to themselves and to the people around them.
