About Me

The most important element in therapy is the relationship between client and therapist, and this counts as much online and on the phone as it does when we're face to face. First we establish a rapport based on clarity and trust. We start with what you're looking for from counselling, then we develop a conversation that will help you face the challenges confronting you and build your internal resources to meet them.

I work integratively and holistically, with the way you think, feel, respond and relate. I'll look at your relationships, your work, your health both mental and physical, and your experience.If you're working on the frontline of the COVID-19 crisis, we can arrange short sessions to blow off steam or standard 50 minute sessions for deeper support. If you're at home, we'll talk about the impact of isolation on you. In either case it's about helping you manage your emotions and energy; to keep your mind clear and calm.

Training and qualifications

I was born, raised and educated in the USA. I earned my degree in International Relations at Brown University, and moved to London to work in Television News; I've spent 30 years in the UK. My mother was a therapist, so the language of therapy was familiar to me, and after becoming a mother myself I got my M.A. with Merit in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at Roehampton University. As part of my training I worked in Bereavement Counselling and with adolescents at a Comprehensive School. I earned a certificate and accreditation in Mediation at Regent's University and have completed a year's online course in the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy with the Couples Institute of California. I have experience working online and on the phone.
