“Everyone deserves good mental health and happiness. My goal is to help you achieve both.”

Perhaps you are experiencing relationship difficulties, a loss, seemingly uncontrollable anger or anxiety, disabling low mood or you simply cannot shift an unwanted habit or fear. Talking to a caring and non-judgmental professional therapist can really make a difference. You may be contemplating getting help, nervous about taking that first step to get the assistance you need.

When you feel ready, please feel free to contact me to discuss your concerns in complete confidence so I can help you to decide whether therapy is right for you. If you decide to go ahead, you can be assured that I will always strive to provide the very best therapy, tailored specifically to your needs in comfortable and discreet surroundings in my London clinic. Appointments are available at times to fit around your other commitments in a very central London location.
