A warm welcome

I offer support for individuals in a private and comfortable setting

Psychotherapy and clinical supervision in Kent and online nationwide

There are times when life can be tough and you may feel that you need some professional support to help you through life’s challenges. Therapy provides a space to openly share and explore these difficulties and helps to facilitate the search for answers and ways of coping. I provide a safe, confidential space in which to explore life's dilemmas and challenges.

I adopt a relational approach to practice which puts your needs at the very heart of the work. I practice from a non-judgemental perspective, viewing difficulties as life’s challenges, rather than disorders. Together we can look at the choices and possibilities arising from your current situation - and work towards understanding your options and what you might like from life.

I am a covid-conscious therapist and recognise that we are living through uncertain times amidst an ongoing pandemic. I offer sessions online, by phone or in a large well-ventilated room with a HEPA filter in West Wickham, Kent.

Areas in which I work include:



Postnatal anxiety and depression

Birth trauma

Baby loss



Relationship issues

Grief, loss and bereavement

Problems with confidence or self-esteem

Physical illness

Difficulties at work

Life transitions


Family issues


I also specialise in working with mothers – please see Maternal support for further details.


Choosing the right therapist is important. To help with this, I offer a complimentary 20 minute telephone or Zoom consultation where you can tell me about your situation and ask any questions you may have about the therapy process or my professional experience.

If you decide to proceed with sessions, we can set a convenient date and time. I usually suggest we start with 6 sessions and then review your needs. I offer both short and long-term therapy, depending on your circumstances.


  • In-person sessions - £70
  • Online and telephone sessions - £65
  • Concessionary rate - £60

All sessions last 50 minutes and fees are payable on the day of the session.

Appointments cancelled with less than 48 hours’ notice will incur a charge.

My location

I'm based in West Wickham in Kent, conveniently close to Bromley, Beckenham, and Shortlands. The therapy room is easily accessible, with ample parking options nearby, and West Wickham train station is just a short walk away.

For added flexibility, I also offer online or telephone sessions, making my services available to clients across the UK.
