As an experienced therapist and counsellor, I can help you to learn more about yourself and to think about the possibility of change in your life.

What I offer
I offer individual psychotherapy and counselling sessions. Sessions are completely confidential; a safe place to talk about personal feelings, relationships and life problems one to one.
A course of therapy may be time limited, which means up to 12 sessions, or it can last longer, depending on individual need and circumstances.
This will be discussed with you when we first meet. Sessions are 50 minutes long once a week.
Each person has his or her own reasons for deciding to see a therapist. So it is helpful to meet for an initial consultation first of all.
This first meeting is a chance for you to tell me about yourself and about what’s troubling you and for you to find out more about psychotherapy and counselling.
If you are feeling anxious, depressed, stressed or unhappy, perhaps stuck or lost in life or in your relationships, therapy can help. Perhaps you are thinking about therapy because of a crisis or specific problem you need to resolve. Or you might have had painful experiences, such as abuse, bullying or bereavement, relationship break up, which bring you to consider therapy. Take the first step and contact me to arrange a time to talk.
At that first meeting we can talk together about how therapy might help, and explore whether time limited (usually 12 sessions) or longer term work might suit you best. I will explain about practical arrangements, such as fees and payment, and answer any questions you may have on these. Time-limited psychotherapy is a focused therapy of up to 12 once a week sessions with an end date agreed between us at the start. With longer term work, the therapy continues on an open ended basis.
My consulting rooms are in central London (EC4 and SE1), and session times can be arranged to fit around a working day. Lunchtimes during the week or Saturday morning may be convenient options to consider.
