Our team of female psychotherapists come from richly diverse backgrounds and have all had successful careers in varied areas like business and law. Together we can look back on a wealth of lifetime experiences – both personal and professional. What we have in common is our training in integrative psychotherapy and the goal to work with women who seek psychological help in a safe environment. We all adhere to the Code of Ethics and Practice of the UKCP. Our therapists:

"Before committing myself to psychotherapy I have worked in law and business. My interest in forensic psychotherapy has led me to many difficult settings where I have learned how easily trauma such as abuse, loss and separation can be transferred from one generation to the next unless the sufferer gains an understanding in her situation. I am particularly concerned about a mother’s struggles to create secure attachment to her children – often resulting in their lifelong problems with building healthy relationships. A member of the International Association of Forensic Psychotherapy (IAFP), I remain dedicated to my work as a forensic psychotherapist at HMP Holloway.
I am an Integrative psychotherapist and as such might employ different ways of working depending on presenting issues: after a thorough assessment and history taking, I would then discuss how best to proceed in therapy. With both my private clients and NHS patients I am largely using the psychodynamic approach where we want to understand the impact of past events on present difficulties and explore the unconscious mind. This method works best open-ended but therapy could be also short-term where and when appropriate: my training in Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy and trauma work as an EMDR therapist allow me to focus on specific issues. I work in English and in German."
BSc (Psych), PGDipPsy, ADipPsy, UKCP & BACP Registered Psychotherapist, Certified Supervisor, EMDR therapist
I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor and have worked in a number of settings including private practice, the NHS and many years as a counsellor at Cruse Bereavement Care, where I am also a trainer and supervisor.
I care passionately about a person’s right to live as fulfilled a life as possible and have seen many times how therapy can help enable people to achieve this.
As an integrative psychotherapist I work mainly with a psychodynamic approach, seeing how the past affects our present and exploring the unconscious mind. In addition I bring other humanistic ways of working such as the person-centred approach. Where appropriate I will deal with trauma through the use of EMDR
Aside from my therapy training, I enjoyed a long career as a manager in the business sector both here and abroad. This brings an understanding of the world of work, the pressures on the individual and the family. I have had the privilege of living and working in different countries and experiencing different cultures and religions.
I work in English and Swedish.
