Hello, let me explain something of who I am and what I do.

I have been practising in the field of counselling, psychotherapy, mentoring and coaching for more than twenty years. During that time I have undertaken further professional training in the UK, Europe and the USA. See below for more details.

My work is concerned with helping you live a life that involves your whole self, mind and body – thoughts, 
feelings and actions – all of these strongly connected 
and working in harmony.

All too often life doesn’t flow smoothly and we begin to lose
 touch with our core selves. It may be a current crisis or something from a forgotten past event
 that stirs up our feelings. That is the time when 
many of us need someone to talk to,
 someone qualified that we can trust, who listens and can guide us in a positive way.


I am an experienced and qualified practitioner, covering a wide range of skills, with an established practice in Central London. I have more than twenty years experience in the field of mental health.

Workplace counselling is one of the key areas I have been involved in since 1989. I began my career as a crisis counsellor with British Airways and was appointed manager and clinical supervisor of the Crewcare counselling service in 1996, dealing with post-traumatic stress and work-life balance. I left British Airways in 2009 to develop my private practice.

Eating disorders

Eating disorders are one of my areas of special expertise; I have worked one-to-one with men and women of all ages with eating problems since 1992.  For five years I facilitated a support group for people with eating disorders at The Priory Hospital in Roehampton, London and I continue to promote the value of psychotherapy and counselling within this diverse and complex field.

I have been an affiliate psychotherapist and supervisor at The National Centre for Eating Disorders, Esher, Surrey, since 1992.

Mental health

I have practiced as a psychotherapist and yoga teacher at the Priory Hospital, Roehampton, London since 2007 and also, at the Recovery Centre, Knightsbridge, since 2009, working with a broad spectrum of mental health issues.

Training and coaching are also a special interest. I first studied coaching in the USA with Mick Mackenzie of Mackenzie International. I then studied coaching for mental health practitioners at Dr Stephen Palmer’s Centre for Coaching in London.

Workplace counselling and coaching

I provided ongoing training and coaching for Inflight Services at British Airways from 1996 to 2010.

I worked as Counselling Supervisor at The Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Institute, London and The Women’s Centre in Harrow, North London.

Yoga and meditation

I have been committed to the practices of  yoga and meditation since 2000, latterly in the Eating Disorders Unit of The Priory Hospital, Roehampton.

I believe yoga contributes fundamentally to aiding well being. I have been greatly influenced by and studied under yoga teachers John Stirk, Tias Little and Simon Low.

I have trained and worked closely with Pia Mellody at The Meadows Treatment Centre, Arizona since 2009. I maintain close links with this renowned facility and often work with individuals on their return to the UK, following their treatment there.
