Anxiety and Panic Disorder
Identifying, understanding and then regaining control over your feelings is how I will help you manage your anxiety and panic. With my expertise as an Anxiety Specialist, there are psychological tools I will use to create a personalised programme so you can change your response and regain control.
Health Anxiety
Your health concerns may be unnecessarily preventing you from living life the way you want. Working with you to identify these concerns and the unpleasant feelings that they generate, I can empower you to set you free from the constant worry about your health. We will identify together how you can use tools, so that you are present again in your life and relationships.
Social Anxiety
Perhaps you become anxious when faced with delivering a presentation, or during networking events and large gatherings, or perhaps in one-to-one settings. However your social anxiety presents itself, there will be tools you can use to set yourself at ease and regain control. Together, we will identify the causes of this anxiety and build a tailored set of tools that enable you to regain control.
Medically Unexplained Illnesses
Quite often medically unexplained illnesses are due to the fact that the physical response of the organs to stress, burnout or trauma has gone too far. If you are experiencing medically unexplained illnesses, the uncertainty and confusion about the cause will affect you. I will help you to explore the history of your symptoms to give clues to what state of mind you were in when the symptoms started and why the symptoms may be continuing. I also help you to understand and change thinking and behavioural patterns that contribute to the symptoms. Communicating with others such as family and friends, health professionals and people in the workplace about your symptoms can be a challenge. I will work with you to develop an empowering communication style.
Insomnia
If insomnia is preventing you being healthy, happy and productive, I will apply my expertise and years of experience in helping people build healthy sleep patterns to identify the underlying causes. With my support, we will discover what is keeping you awake, how you can manage the underlying causes, and how making changes in your life can result in healthy sleeping habits.
Body Acceptance
Negative feelings about your appearance and body image may result in a loss of confidence and low self-esteem. You may also waste time and money trying to fix a problem you perceive but others cannot see. With an understanding of why you have these negative feelings, that we reach together, I can help you change your perceptions, your over-focus on appearance and regain your confidence.
Depression
Experiencing periods of depression is often the outcome of experiences and events, both current and past. It may also have physical roots. It is not an unusual condition and with the right support it is possible to overcome your unhelpful thoughts and feelings. We will identify the causes together and I will apply my expertise to identify the combination of techniques that result in positive change.
Chronic Fatigue
I will work with you to discover the source of your chronic fatigue. This is often challenging as it can be caused by multiple factors, many simultaneously. These include over-working, insomnia, and suppressed emotions. We will collaborate to identify a strategy for managing the underlying reasons, making the changes in your lifestyle that will replenish your energy and restore your passion for life.
Parenting – Mindful Discipline
Finding parenthood overwhelming is a common and completely normal reaction affecting many successful and high achieving individuals. Together, with my many years’ experience of supporting parents to adjust to their new role and reality, I’ll help you understand your child’s psychology so parenting becomes less daunting and more manageable. I can teach you techniques that promote stronger communication within families which results in resilient mindsets.
Bulimia
Your bulimia often has deep psychological roots that I will work with you to identify and address to avoid further mental and physical health issues. If you are struggling with bulimia, I can help you free yourself from the restrictions it imposes on your life so you can enjoy food and socialising, for pleasure and business, without fear.
Addictions
Your addictions become unmanageable when they start to impact negatively on your physical and mental health and disrupt your day-to-day home and work life. We will act together swiftly to prevent your addition from causing lasting harm. Treating your addictions, whether smoking, alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, sex or another habit, enables you make the changes that enable you to regain control.
Acute or Chronic Illness
If you or a loved one that you care for are suffering from a serious illness, I offer therapy and coping strategies to improve your emotional wellbeing and mental health. Serious illnesses impact on everyone involved, so I can work with you to bring positivity and resilience to your situation.

Psychological Therapy

Those of you who work in law and finance in The City of London are the high performing elite of your professions. Yours are intrinsically challenging occupations that come with extraordinary demands and stresses, on which you may at times thrive. Yet, despite outward appearances you may not be happy. Your health may be suffering. The stress, and other events in your life, can impact your mental and physical health. At these times, you may need experienced professional support to get your life back on track. I work with high achieving City professionals, like you, so have unique insights into your organisational culture and the psychology of high achievers. With this specific knowledge of your day-to-day context, I begin our exploration to bring change by understanding and exploring your challenges and their cause.

I know your time is precious. I have over 25 years’ experience of delivering and researching psychological services. During this time, I have developed my own style that rapidly helps you to discover the core reason for your problems. I draw upon a range of psychological approaches such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), hypnosis, somatic psychology and neuropsychology to provide you with optimal therapy solutions.

You should know from the outset that I do not just provide ‘talking therapy’. If you just want a ‘talking therapy’ then, I am probably not the right psychologist for you.

I work with my clients to develop the right personalised psychological tools and techniques to support change. I pride myself on my ability to help my clients make positive changes so they can be happy, healthy and enjoy and maintain their success.
