About me

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Counsellor.
I am registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
I work with private individuals who are experiencing emotional distress such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, relationship issues, loss, life transitions and stress of every day life.
I also accept referrals from GPs and other professionals concerned with psychological support. My consulting rooms are conveniently based in Canary Wharf and Hampstead in London.
In addition to my private practice – between 2010 and 2018 – I was a committed volunteer counsellor with AGE UK – the UK’s leading charity dedicated to later life.

Areas of interest

anxiety disorders;
loss & depression;
eating disorders;
pregnancy & birth;
self-esteem & confidence;
work & career issues;
mid-life crisis;
ageing (loneliness/dependence);

While I work with a wide range of issues, I am particularly interested in working with middle-aged and older adults. With these age groups much of my work focuses on feelings related to loss, relationship to time and/or considering how ageing difficulties may affect the way in which one relates to oneself, others and to the world.
