Therapy for individuals, couples and groups.
I can help artists and performance professionals with concerns including stress, anxiety, depression, identity, relationship difficulties, job loss/redundancy, trauma, loss/bereavement, chronic illness, suicidal ideation, self-harm, eating disorder, many more.
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist seeing clients in a GP surgery and private practice. I’ve also worked previously as a life coach and a specialist mental health mentor supporting students in universities across London.
I see clients in private practice and I also work in a GP surgery and university counselling services. Alongside therapy, I’m a freelance writer and sub-editor for magazines and national press. I am attuned to the issues that creative and journalistic professions can bring up. I previously worked for Samaritans during the Men on The Ropes research campaign on male suicide – I have a great deal of empathy and knowledge in this area. I was also a Samaritans helpline listener for four years, supporting people with thoughts of suicide. I have since worked with Mind providing life coaching and emotional support to young adults in care and with ChildLine’s schools service delivering assemblies and workshops to primary school children on abuse and neglect.
I routinely combine my counselling and journalistic work raising awareness of mental health in the national press, media, radio and podcasts. I created and host my own music & mental health podcast called Sound Affects, exploring mental health in the music industry.
Therapeutic approach: Gestalt, Humanistic.
