Psychotherapy and Counselling in my consultancy close to Hampstead Heath can provide you with a supportive and confidential space in which to explore any issues that may affect your quality of life, in a space just for you. My aim is always to support you to make sense of your life in a way that leads to increased resilience and renewed hope.

Psychotherapy and Counselling can be taken on a short or long term basis depending on your needs. Counselling tends to be taken on a more short term basis whilst Psychotherapy takes place over a longer period. Psychotherapy can offer you a space for deeper levels of reflection simply because of the ongoing continuity of the work. Realising one's potential can take time!

When you first come to see me I assess your needs and adapt your therapy according to your individual requirements and can then provide you with a space to deepen your understanding of yourself or simply reconnect. Your initial Counselling or Psychotherapy consultation is free of charge so you have time to explore what you need and to see if it's right for you.

Psychotherapy and Counselling usually takes place on a weekly basis, though some people feel the need to come less often. The aim of it is always an improved quality of life and relationships. It can be as much about celebrating your strengths and nurturing and fulfilling your aspirations as well as facing and resolving difficult experiences, and always takes place at a pace that provides safety and connection for you.



As a Psychotherapist, Counsellor and Clinical Supervisor I have 20 years post graduate experience in private practice and work with clients who have experienced stress, loss and bereavement, anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties.

I provide treatment for Doctors in my private practice and at The Practitioner Health Programme - PHP - an NHS service that provides a safe haven and confidential treatment for Doctors and Dentists. The Doctors I provide treatment for have experienced a wide range of stress related issues, including anxiety and depression.

As a supervisor for psychotherapists, counsellors and trainees I provide clinical supervision within an integrative relational framework and supervise across orientations including Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Transpersonal models.

  • My inspiration have been the women and men whom I have been privileged to work with, including the doctors, dentists and psychiatrists I have worked with over the years who have withstood untold pressures in their chosen careers at great cost to themselves. It takes courage to access support because of pressures inherent in the system you work within. People who have courageously overcome prejudice and pursued careers founded on the desire to help others.

    I have specialised in working with women for 30 years witnessing courageous women who have risen above painful experiences to make immense meaning of their lives and who have moved onto achieve great aspirations. Supporting Women to heal and empower themselves has been a lifelong thread of inspiration woven throughout my career.

    "Empathy is simply listening,
    holding space, withholding judgement,
    emotionally connecting, and communicating
    that incredibly healing message of
    'you're not alone'


    As a Psychotherapist and Counsellor I have been equally privileged to work with the men in my practice, many of who have struggled to overcome shaming and debilitating projections societies across cultures have placed on them - to always be strong and to view vulnerability as weakness. These women and men represent some of the hidden survivors in the world.
