About Me

"Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself."

You possess the innate ability to create profound and lasting change in your life. As a psychotherapist, I provide an authentic and safe relationship to help you achieve that, through exploration, support and challenge. Using a direct, straightforward style, I take a bespoke approach with each client, allowing your needs to guide our work. I believe passionately in de-mystifying the therapeutic process and showing up as my fully human self with you.

I have worked extensively with anxiety, uncertainty and upheaval, trauma and abuse, self-esteem. depression, feelings of emptiness/ emotional detachment, domestic partner violence, family and relationship problems, work stress, chronic illness, sexuality/identity and reproductive issues, complicated bereavement. I also have a strong interest in cultural identity issues. I offer both short-term and long-term therapy.

My primary approach is psychodynamic - I am keenly interested in the formative and sometimes unconscious experiences which shape our current day lives.

My office is centrally located at Chancery Lane, Holborn, (WC1V), where I also offer early morning and late evening availability. I am once again offering face-to-face sessions.

I also offer online therapy, which can be more convenient for people with limited time, mobility, access or availability.

I offer a reduced fee initial consultation at £45, allowing you to discuss the issues you'd like to focus on, and to decide if I'm the right fit for you as a therapist. Please feel free to text/email/call me to arrange a consultation session.

Following on from the first meeting, sessions are weekly, either short-term or longer-term. Fees are £65/hr.

I offer a limited number of concession slots - we can discuss your personal circumstances if this is of interest

More About Me:  I come from a 20yr background in social services. In my spare time, I enjoy running, art and independent music gigs.

It is important to me that my practice is trauma-informed, intersectional, and supportive of all nonheteronormative/nonconforming ways of living/being. I undertake my own work on anti-racism, anti-ableism and anti-oppressive practice on a continual basis. My pronouns are she/her.
