About Me

By nature I tend to integrate the best from different approaches.

Originally I trained and worked, for many years, with individuals and groups in process-experiential psychotherapy, working in a range of settings including private practice, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, and general mental health with Mind.

Subsequently I specialised and qualified as a Psychoanalytic Couples Psychotherapist and also as a Psychodynamic Marital & Couples Therapist with Tavistock Relationships (“Tavistock”). In addition, and in a unique combination, I am also the first psychotherapist to be fully trained in the UK and certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy by the International Centre for Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT, based in Ottawa, Canada).

My work with businesses and professional service firms – and the development of Executive Psychotherapy and PsyCoaching® – derives from an integration of my own professional and business backgrounds with psychotherapy depth-tools. In addition to my Counselling, Psychotherapy, Executive Psychotherapy and PsyCoaching private practices, I also work as a careers and business coach in the City.

This combination of trainings allows me to offer Counselling, Psychotherapy, Executive Psychotherapy and PsyCoaching from an integration of psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, relational, attachment, humanistic and process-experiential approaches. It means that, together, we will really work on the root causes of your difficulties and how to change them.

I continually undertake further and advanced training and professional development.
