Thank you for visiting the London Psychotherapist website. Professionally trained, qualified and UKCP accredited, I offer psychotherapy, counselling and coaching in London W1. I am also an accredited supervisor to therapists and coaches.
My consulting room in Regent Street, only a short walk from Oxford Circus and Piccadilly tubes and Soho provides a quiet, comfortable space for individuals and couples who come from all walks of life. Skype sessions are also available and can provide a practical alternative for those who are unable to attend face-to-face sessions.

I incorporate different techniques and theories tailored to suit the unique situation of each client or couple. These approaches include gestalt therapy, with its focus on the present; CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) to identify and challenge distorted thoughts and perspectives and psychodynamic therapy which examines the past and how it has shaped us. Mindfulness, visualisations, role plays and creative experiments are offered to enliven the process with experiential learning providing tools to use outside the sessions. This integrative approach enables the flexibility to work with many different issues and concerns.
