About me

I'm a BACP registered integrative therapist and counsellor with a Harley Street and Finchley therapy practice.  I trained at the Mary Ward Centre in Central London.

Coming from a complex childhood of my own, I learned from a young age the power of a positive, nurturing relationship.  Along the way, it was the people who provided safe spaces, and open listening that offered me the space I needed to grow and consider how I could fulfil my potential in life.  Having struggled in school with dyslexia (not something that was well supported in the 80's), I needed to find my own way to believe in myself and show those around me what I was capable of.  This led to my entrepreneurial zest which enabled me to set up and run several successful businesses.  I also have trained and qualified as a commercial pilot, a divemaster and am currently working towards my second degree (Dan) black belt in Karate. I truly believe development never stops and life is a series of journeys.

I decided  to leave the business world and use all that I have gained from my varied professional and voluntary experiences to offer others that safe space that has been so valuable for me in my life. 

I find offering talking therapy an enriching and fulfilling experience. I am constantly learning from my clients and colleagues and find the learning and development I gain from thinking about the human experience helps me to consider my own life and the lives of others with greater depth.

Since becoming a father 7 years ago, I became passionate about supporting dads at all stages of their parenting journey. Men can often feel isolated in their emotional experience and this can be exacerbated when becoming a father.  I feel strongly that there needs to be more spaces for men to talk and share as well as greater level of understanding of the specific experience and needs of dads on their parenting journey. 

I have experience of working as a therapist in a variety of settings including, anger, bereavement, anxiety, depression, community counselling, crisis counselling,  business and work stress, the impacts of the menopause, domestic violence, one to one counselling and therapy, private practice, video and phone call therapy services. 

Alongside my private practice I hold voluntary therapy positions in two charities, one offering bereavement support and another offering low cost therapeutic support for those in crisis.

I  work with issues such as; anxiety, depression, fear, phobias, panic attacks, anger, stress, self-esteem, bereavement, loss, change, abuse, relationship problems, sex related issues, cultural issues and or situations, work issues, identity, life changes, meaning, grief, health related issues, different types abuse, addictions and trauma.
