Life Concerns

There are times in most people’s busy lives when they experience emotionally painful events or have unwanted feelings from which there seems no escape. Sometimes the cause is clear - a difficult relationship, a bereavement or an illness. Sometimes however, we feel our lives have become intolerable, we are repeating the same old difficulties time and time again or we just feel stuck. The cause of these feelings can seem to be inexplicable. My aim as a psychotherapist and counsellor is to help couples and individuals to understand their anxieties. Through embarking on the process of psychotherapy and counselling they can come to know and accept themselves and to find their own meanings and ways through their questions and difficulties.

Therapy begins and ends with a therapist who is prepared to know how you feel.


Experienced Counsellor/Therapist

I am a highly qualified and experienced psychotherapist and couples counsellor, registered with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy), working in the NHS and in private practice in SW4 - Clapham and SW1 -Victoria /Belgravia/Chelsea/Mayfair serving Central and South West London. I have a long history of working as a counsellor/psychotherapist in the private and public sectors and have a particular interest in people who are struggling with anxieties, conflicts and concerns in everyday life while trying to maintain a stable working and family life. I provide psychotherapy and counselling for individuals and couples and also offer clinical supervision to trainee therapists and practitioners setting up in practice.

Therapy relies on a therapist/counsellor who can be relied on in times of uncertainty, conflict and despair. Not having to bear the unbearable alone makes it more bearable.

Psychotherapy and Counselling

Psychotherapy and counselling come in many forms and designed to help people from all walks of life. The help I offer ranges from short- term psychotherapy and counselling focused on a specific problem to open-ended psychotherapy and a deeper personal exploration. The aim of both is to reduce the anxiety, confusion and conflict that arise when daily life, work, relationships, communications or boundaries become blurred.

As an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor, I offer help to clients whose difficulties include:
anxiety • stress • depression • eating disorders • loss of confidence • inability to change • relationships • sexuality • bereavement • trauma • abuse • emotional crisis • work issues • uncertainty • panic • phobias • isolation • loneliness • homesickness


Seeking therapy is a brave decision. That first courageous step is the start of an exploration of how one's own mind works and adapts when under threat, often in an 'old' way that can be challenged and changed


See Counselling in Victoria and Clapham page for more details of how I work.
