About me

I’ve been practising as a Human Givens therapist for over seven years. Besides my private practice, I also work at two charities, the City & Hackney Carers Centre and a branch of Mind in London, giving workshops and providing therapy for clients across a large range of problems.

I’ve always been curious about the mind and how mental and emotional well-being work – or, often, don’t. I began meditating at 18 and took a degree in Social Psychology before working in travel and sponsored film production. I joined BBC Television, making documentaries about dreaming consciousness, green spirituality and non-ordinary experiences.

My own experience of personal and work-place stress led me to counselling and psychotherapy, and I set out to tend my own well-being and self-development.  This meant encountering a number of therapies; both long and not so long, in a group and one-to-one. Finally, I worked as a counsellor myself in Marylebone in central London.

In 2001, a colleague introduced me to the Human Givens approach to psychotherapy. Its power to explain our human experience was on a different level, and I saw that it offered me the holistic understanding, clarity and tools with which to make more of a difference to people more quickly.  I have since qualified as a Human Givens therapist.

To maintain the broadest understanding, I keep up to date with the latest research in mental health, therapeutic practice and neuroscience.
