East Finchley, London, N2 8JJ


My practice is in Trinity Road, East Finchley, London N2. The nearest tube station is East Finchley on the High Barnet/Mill Hill East branch of the Northern Line. My consulting room is either a 15 minute walk from the tube station, or a short bus ride. Both the 263 and 143 buses pass within a 5 minute walk of Trinity Road, by different routes. They can both be caught outside East Finchley tube station.

Fees & Charges

Regular sessions last for 50 minutes and cost between £65 and £90 on a sliding scale. Our first meeting gives us an opportunity to talk about your reasons for seeking therapy, and for me to get to know something about your background and history, including previous experiences of therapy or counselling. It also gives you a chance to experience something about how I work, and consider whether you might like to work with me. At the initial session we can talk about practicalities, frequency of therapy and whether we would like to work together. We decide together what frequency of sessions would suit you, depending upon your needs. Sessions are usually weekly, but can also be more frequent if you need to work more intensively. I have a limited number of lower cost places at £65 a session for those on lower incomes, which are often taken up. However, it is worth checking back periodically to see whether a lower cost place has become available.


Car parking available, Ground Floor Room But No Wheelchair Access, Online/Internet Counselling, Skype Video Counselling, Telephone Counselling.

About me


I work with clients of all sexualities and gender identities. My practice includes a significant proportion of lesbians, bisexual clients of all genders and gay men, and I also have experience of working with transgendered clients who may be considering or have embarked upon transition. I also work with couples.    


I work from an Attachment-based and relational view point, meaning that we pay attention to your early significant relationships and the kind of expectations of relationships that can tend to persist from childhood into your adult relationships and friendships.   

I work collaboratively with clients to explore a wide range of emotional and relationship experiences, including depression, anxiety and panic states , obsessional feelings and compulsions (including internet 'addictions' of various kinds) and PTSD and dissociation (for example, feeling numb, unreal or depersonalised, experiencing degrees of amnesia in relation to trauma, and intrusive symptoms and flashbacks). I also work with clients who have a conflicted relationship with food or other substances and discomfort with their body image.

I have specific experience of working with clients who have experienced loss, trauma and emotional neglect, either in early life or subsequently, and in working with clients who have experienced adult sexual trauma and child sexual abuse. I also work with clients with dissociative disorders, including Dissociative Identity Disorder. I interest and experience in exploring issues of gender identity, including transgender and intersexuality. I am also experienced in working with young adults (aged 18-25).

My clients come from a wide range of cultural backgrounds and I believe that understanding how culture, race and class as well as individual family history, affect our sense of self and what is possible for us, can be an important part of what psychotherapy has to offer.
