About Me

I am a Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Psychologist. I am also listed in the British Psychological Society Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors (RAPPS).

For over a decade, I have worked in the NHS and a range of mental health charities, as well as my private practice, which I operate from the Harley Street district of central London.

The way I work is to try to help people to become less troubled by their struggles, and to feel better equipped to deal with the ups and downs that inevitably occur in life. Ultimately, the therapy is about you, and involves exploring how you think and feel about yourself, and how past experiences influence the way things are for you in the here and now. The focus on the past allows consideration of how to shape the present and ultimately, the future in more constructive ways.

In my private practice I see couples and individuals, from young adults to older people in later life. I offer short and long term therapeutic work. This may be once weekly, and where indicated, I work with people more intensively than weekly sessions, over some months or sometimes years. The choice of therapeutic approach is thought about together in the initial session(s) and is reviewed together periodically.

While personality, anxiety, depression, relationships and emotional trauma are areas of expertise, I am interested and experienced in working with people who want to engage in therapy to think about themselves more deeply, and to understand and relate to themselves better. As an Integrative psychologist, I am trained and experienced with a range of psychological models, though I mainly use psychoanalytic, existential-humanistic and compassion-focused models for therapy.

Quite often I work with people who are at a stage where they want to make sense of, and find meaning in their lives. This in itself can form the basis of valuable therapeutic aims.

Although I avoid too much emphasis on the use of labels, some examples of diagnoses I often work with include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Personality
  • Psychosis
  • Trauma/PTSD

Other typical examples of issues that people bring to our sessions include:

  • Self-Esteem
  • Self-criticism
  • Identity
  • Stress
  • Relationships
  • Sex and Sexuality
  • Anger
  • Loneliness and Isolation
  • Loss, grief and bereavement
  • Physical Health (e.g. Pain, Sleep, HIV, terminal illness)
  • Childhood abuse

Location
Since the beginning of Lockdown restrictions in March 2020 my practice has been largely online. The success of this over the past two years or so indicates that online sessions will continue to be offered beyond the pandemic.

I am also now available to meet for therapy sessions in my consulting rooms in central London, W1, Close to Harley Street, subject to availability.

Fees
Initial consultation:                                £85.00 for a fifty-minute session.
Individual Psychotherapy Sessions:   £100.00 – £150 fifty-minute session (Fee mainly dependent on time and location).

Clinical Supervision of qualified and trainee practitioner’s is available on a sliding scale dependent on qualification status.

First Session
I offer an initial consultation session at a reduced rate (£85) as an opportunity for you to discuss your current concerns and difficulties for which you are considering therapy. I will address any questions that you may have, and together we will decide whether this is the right moment for you to begin therapy, and if so, we will agree on the duration and focus of our work.

  • Doctor of Psychology (DPsych)
  • MSc with Distinction in Early Psychosis Intervention.
