Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Registered Psychotherapist offering online therapy at a place and time that is convenient for you. Online therapist based in Canary Wharf, London, and available wherever you are.
Online therapy to suit your lifestyle.
E-Therapy For where you are at
I decided to bring my practice online to offer an accessible service which might be more on my clients’ terms. I hope to be able to meet clients where they are at, not just psychologically, but also geographically and to suit their circumstances. All of my clients are welcome to visit me in person at some point in my office in Canary Wharf, London when and if they can. But opening my therapy room to include cyber space means that clients with mobility issues, with caring responsibilities for others, living remotely or with frequent travel commitments can still ensure that they get the therapy they choose with a regularity that it right for them.
This page outlines my online therapist services and experience. In sum, I am qualified as an integrative psychotherapist and a chartered counselling psychologist. This means that I have had five years post graduate training (with a prerequisite psychology undergraduate education). On a more personal note, I was born and raised in South Africa and have been living in London for over twenty years.
Years in Private Practice
