"The difference since our first session last week is incredible. I came with nothing, and left with so much. It's been life changing." SW, London Jan 2015
I am a leading psychotherapist, mindfulness consultant, executive coach, clinical supervisor and trainer.
I have been in practice since 1993, working with high achieving professionals and creative people.
I offer appointments in London's Harley Street and also via Skype, so you can get help no matter where in the world you are.
Clients often self refer. I also receive referrals from other health professionals, such as doctors, cosmetic surgeons, occupational health professionals and dental surgeons. I am also registered with a number of Employee Assistance schemes and health insurance policies which may cover the cost of sessions.
The combination of skills I offer is unique in the UK. As author of The Burnout Bible, I am one of the UK's leading specialists in stress, burn-out and work/life balance.
I work from an integrative approach, informed by humanistic and psychodynamic philosophy and mindfulness ways of working, but I draw from other approaches too, such as cognitive behaviour therapy, depending upon your needs. I am able to vary my style from fairly structured to fairly loose, according to your preference. By working collaboratively we can arrive at the most appropriate working style for you, so please do let me know if the style used does not feel like the best one for you.
I have been working with mindfulness-based approaches since the early 1990s. My MA thesis examined how mindfulness (in the form of the felt sense) could be found within most schools of psychotherapy and distilled key principles for working with mindfulness within a psychotherapeutic approach. In 2014 I took part in an innovative pilot scheme on Mindfulness and Weight Loss.
My specialist areas:
I have a particular interest in working with :
stress, burnout and work-life balance (with a special emphasis on the particular needs of high achieving professionals and people in the creative arts)
quality of life issues (including mid-life crisis, life goals and spiritual values)
the creative process
personal / professional development

The Harley Consultancy Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
Each day is entirely new and unexpected. I meet a wonderful selection of people and we get to talk about the fascinating and surprising ways in which their mind works. It all serves to keep me in a curious and intrigued frame of mind.
What inspired you to start your own business?
As a psychotherapist, I am motivated to be of help, and private practice is the normal way in which that can come about.
Why should our clients choose you?
People seek me out because they want to work with me, and benefit from my unique set of skills and expertise - especially with issues to do with stress, burnout, self confidence and self esteem in which I am recognised as a leading practitioner. I generally get good results in a surprisingly short period of time so my practice is always very busy as a result.
In addition, I have a considerable amount of experience (20 years and counting), and have a lot of trainings under my belt too (I also used to train other counsellors, as well).
