About Me

My name is Barbara.  I work with individuals who are experiencing emotional distress such as depression, anxiety, panic, loneliness,  relationship issues, loss, life transitions and stress of every day life.  I am experienced in helping people to discover a sense of personal resource and resilience in the face of adversity.

I am a chartered counselling psychologist and counsellor.  I am registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC).

My clients often tell me that I am a very good listener.   For me, two essentials are: understanding an issue from your unique personal perspective and providing time and space where you may explore and make sense of your experience.

In my practice I offer:

- therapy on a one-to-one basis

- brief or longer term therapeutic programmes

- a variety of therapeutic approaches to suit your personal needs.

- therapy for different age groups: younger or older adults & couples

I can help with long standing difficulties, specific personal or/and professional dilemmas; or just to gain a sense of clarity and ease in everyday life.   I am experienced in the following key areas:

  • anxiety & panic
  • loss & depression
  • relationships
  • self-esteem & confidence
  • stress
  • work & career issues
  • divorce
  • mid-life crisis
  • illness
  • ageing (loneliness/dependence)

Between 2010-2018, in addition to my private practice, I was a committed volunteer counsellor with AGE UK — the UK’s leading charity dedicated to later life - where I counseled people aged 55 years or older.   While I work with a wide range of issues, I am particularly interested in working with middle-aged and older adults. 

  I offer appointments at the following London locations:

1) Canary Wharf E14

2) London Bridge SE1

3) Hampstead NW3

I encourage any individual to come for an initial session with me before they commit to a course of therapy.
