Psychotherapy in Stanmore, Middlesex

Life can be truly daunting if, when you wake up, you find yourself anxiously thinking about how you will get through the day ahead. Going to bed, do you find yourself lying awake going over every detail of the day, wondering if you had said the wrong thing, worrying who you may have upset and feeling desperately lonely?


Perhaps you try to downplay these thoughts with “others are worse off than me” or "I've no right to feel this way". Maybe you have a sense of what’s wrong in your life, yet somehow this ‘knowing’ makes no difference and you may feel stuck, seeing no 'answers'. Trying to rationalise what is behind your anxiety does not change the fact that you feel how you feel, about yourself and your life!

As a Chartered Psychologist and Psychotherapist I work with people who seek professional support for a variety of psychological difficulties, this includes eating disorders, trauma, OCD, depression and anxiety. Each person brings their own unique history and experiences; what they have in common is the impact, frequently from their early years, of low self-esteem and self-worth and somehow this has stretched across time affecting the relationships they have with themselves and others today.

I am an eating disorders Consultant and as you will read on my 'eating disorders' page what I am truly interested in is getting to know you. Beyond the symptoms I see a person in emotional turmoil. Regardless of the time you have spent battling with this illness you can move forward, but you can't do it alone. Moving forward means learning to like yourself, appreciating that life is not black or white, perfect or catastrophic; you don't succeed or fail! My message to you is that there IS a life to be had without your eating disorder.

Therapy offers you different possibilities

Therapy can be a leap into the unknown, You may have experienced therapy in the past, perhaps it helped for a time, or didn’t, back then. Timing, or 'personal readiness' is, I believe, a factor. Psychotherapy can enable you to find new possibilities in your life but you also need to feel comfortable, safe with that person. I believe the relationship we have together is the most important factor in our work together; I can’t tell you if I’m right for you but an informal meeting is a step forward.


As a qualified, experienced Psychologist and Psychotherapist my aim is to provide a place for you to safely explore the challenges you are finding hard to deal with alone. This is your time, to find a more resilient, gentler perspective of yourself, and your relationships.


I provide psychotherapy from Stanmore, North West London. This is within easy reach from Bushey, Borehamwood & Elstree, Radlett, St Albans, Edgware, Mill-Hill & Watford. Stanmore is on the Jubilee line and there are good public transport links. The motorway links of the A41, M1 and M25 provides additional accessibility. I also offer sessions via Zoom and Skype.
