16 Years Experience

Previously, an NHS Honorary Therapist, I have been in private practice since 2006.
I studied under Dr. Diane LeFevre and the post-graduate course that she supervised included a great deal of clinical practice on both neurotic and psychotic patients, after which I continued as an Honorary Therapist at Basildon Mental Health Hospital until I established my own private practice. I now practice from my consulting room at my home in Stebbing which is in a quiet and discreet setting and also at The Harley Consultancy in Harley Street, London. I offer a calm and empathetic approach while we work through whatever is troubling you.

I have particular experience in Adoption Issues, Anxiety, Bereavement, General counselling, Identity problems, Obsessional behaviour, Personal Development, Burn-out, Phobias, Self Esteem and Self-worth, Sex related issues, Sexual identity and Issues with fluidity.

Although my primary approach is Psychodynamic, I also call upon a variety of other theoretical ‘models’ including Analytic Therapy, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural), Person Centred, EFT and Mindfulness as appropriate.

I work with Adults and Young People (18+) one to one either long-term work or time-limited as well as online counselling using Skype, Facetime, WhatsApp, RingMD and Sylo.

I am a registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and fully insured by Towergate. I am bound and adhere to the BACP and ICO codes of ethics and am registered with BUPA, AXA-PPP and Aviva as a provider.

Prior to becoming a psychotherapist my career was in computer forensic analysis and data recovery. While it may seem that these are rather diverse paths to pursue, they are in fact strangely related:
Forensic investigation and recovery requires a diligent concentration on recognising clues in order to understand the difference between what is presented and what is actually the truth; as well as following threads to reveal the real story below the surface. (This could be a model description of the process behind Psychodynamic Psychotherapy!)

Thank you for your help over the last 3 months – it has had a profound impact upon me. MHJ

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I just wanted to drop you a line to express my sincere gratitude for helping me through the most terrible episode in my life. It is cliché to be a depressed actress but you enabled me to refocus and I am not surprised that you are becoming one of the ‘go-to’ therapists for celebs and those in the media.
I really can’t thank you enough and hope you keep your promise to come to the premier! MJD

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

. . . “Being recommended by my director ---------- to you was one of the best things that has happened to me. I can’t think of a big enough adjective for the gratitude I feel for giving me back my life and rescuing my floundering career. OCD is definitely not a good skill to have as an actress! . . . SM
