Clinical Psychologist providing therapy in
Crouch End, Muswell Hill & North London

Struggling with painful feelings, or with difficult patterns of thinking and behaviour, is an inevitable part of life, it is part of being human.

Although painful feelings and experiences cannot be avoided, it is possible to try to understand them, and to find more helpful ways of relating to them. Seeking therapy can be a move towards trying to understand oneself more fully and towards trying to take more control over how one lives one's life. Therapy can help whether you are feeling stuck in a particular area of your life, or utterly overwhelmed and unable to function.

I worked as a psychologist within the NHS for over 12 years and gradually moved into private practice. I now have my own psychological therapy practice in Crouch End. As a Clinical Psychologist I am trained in a range of different psychological therapies. I tend to work psychoanalytically, but I have also worked extensively using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT).

Whilst working as a psychologist within and outside of the NHS I have helped people with a wide range of difficulties.

Examples include:
  • Anxiety, including, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive compulsive and generalised anxiety disorder
  • Trauma, traumatic experiences and post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Difficult childhood experiences
  • Experiences that are hard to overcome, such as the end of relationships or problems at work
  • Self-defeating cycles, such as low self-esteem, self-harm and self-sabotage
  • Depression, both short and long-term
  • Relationship problems, building and maintaining relationships and balancing your own and others' needs
  • Eating difficulties and problems with body image
  • Bipolar disorder or difficulties managing mood and patterns of behaviour
  • Bereavement and finding meaning in life after the loss of a loved one
  • Addiction and other behaviours that damage both the self and other people
  • Sleep problems
  • Or... you may have no "name" for your difficulties, yet experience intense feelings such as anger or guilt, or you might feel confused, stuck or empty

Whilst some patients attend once or twice/week, there are opportunities for more intensive psychotherapy - attending four times/week, which allows for more in-depth work. This is available on a low fee basis. If you are interested, please get in touch and we can discuss further.

My psychological therapy practice is in Crouch End, which is easily accessible from Muswell Hill, Finsbury Park, Highgate, Hornsey and surrounding areas of North London. Crouch End is on a number of bus routes, the W3, W5, W7, 41, 91 and 210. The practice is also about 10 minutes walk (or a short bus ride) from Hornsey train station (on the Great Northern line leading straight into the city centre) and Crouch Hill train station (on the London Overground).
