starting with how you feel about yourself
Currently working online I offer positive help and support to couples and individuals with a range of issues including relationship difficulties, anxiety, and career stress.
I am committed to providing a safe, non-judgemental space for all gender, sexual and relationship diversity.
Responding to the individual needs and circumstances of each client is central to my approach. Working together with you to understand the causes of current challenges and difficulties, and to move towards finding a way forward is at the heart of the work I do as a therapist.
Some areas I can help individual clients with: relationship difficulties, compulsive sexual behaviours (including problematic use of pornography), anxiety, depression, loneliness, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement.
Fees for individual online counselling via Zoom: £50 per 55 minute session
The decision to seek couple therapy can result from a sudden crisis in your relationship but also as a way of making sense of longer-term feelings of uncertainty or unhappiness. Taking a balanced and non-judgemental approach I work to understand areas of conflict and difference and support ongoing communication with couples.
Some areas I have experience of working together with couples on: lack of communication, conflict and anger, infidelity and betrayal, commitment, loss of desire and intimacy.
Fees for couple online therapy via Zoom: £65 per 55 minute session
Finding meaning in your working life, clarifying career goals and finding a balance with ambitions and personal values can be challenging. Careers coaching can support self-awareness, and also provide practical direction in terms of ‘what next’.
Some areas I can help with: career change and transition, work-life balance, stress management, personal effectiveness at work.
Fees for career coaching sessions, and tailored programmes, available on request
My professional training and experience, as both a couple and individual psychotherapist and experienced career coach, ensures a breadth of understanding regarding the challenges of managing relationships and a creating a meaningful career.
I offer positive help and support with a range of issues including anxiety, relationship difficulties and compulsive sexual behaviours. Qualified as a couple and individual psychotherapist at Tavistock Relationships, with an MSc from the Department of Organisational Psychology, Birkbeck University of London. I have undertaken further training in the area of counselling for compulsive sexual behaviours.

Working as a therapist, with a focus on relationships, I offer expertise and the capacity to listen without judgement. I am able to question and be curious, and work together with clients to find new approaches to some of life’s problems.
As a couple or individual you may be experiencing difficult feelings, or behaviours, that are impacting on your life. I can work together with you to provide space and time to explore, understand and implement positive changes in your life.

Cityspace Counselling was formerly based in the historic setting of Charlton House, which offered a safe and peaceful setting in South East London.
As member of the local community here in SE7, I very much hope to be able to return to work in this beautiful building,
in the heart of Charlton, at some point in the future.
The pictures on this site are taken in several of Charlton's wonderful green spaces.
