If you are looking for a therapy that goes beyond talk and focuses on long-term change, rather than continually reviewing your past, then my approach is for you! I work by educating and actively integrating healthier coping strategies (including role playing through difficult situations). I offer short-term solution focused empowerment therapy, specifically designed to ensure you are equipped with the skills that you need to take back control of your life.
My immersive energy brings a very unique approach to traditional therapy. Simply put, my approach is specifically designed to:
1. Identify and work through the root cause(s)
2. Create and practice empowering strategies
3. Implementation with guidance and support
This highly successful methodology utilises the latest scientific techniques to enable swift solutions that will transform your life. Ultimately, achieving a strong and confident long-term outlook. I am also a passionate advocate for mindfulness and regularly interweave this into our work.
Choosing professional guidance can be a minefield. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I would be happy to talk to you in confidence and without obligation.
I have successfully treated a wide range of problems including, but not limited to:
Emotional problems; including anxiety, depression, hurt, guilt, shame, anger, jealousy and envy
Relationship issues; including workplace stress
Addictions; including drug, alcohol, gambling, gaming, self harm, co-dependency and food addictions
Lack of confidence and low self esteem
Finding the motivation to make sustainable changes
Bereavement and loss
Spiritual crisis or loss of meaning in life
Hi i’m Jay. I initially qualified (with honours) in CBT/REBT therapy (a combination of cognitive therapy and behavioural psychotherapy) at CCBT, Regents University. My experience extends to clients at my three London clinics, and around the world, through my online practice. I am registered on the NHS Choices approved listing for accredited therapists and counsellors, www.welldoing.org.
Research studies: I'm finalising an MSc in Psychology and Neuroscience of Mental Health with The Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at Kings College London. I am a member of the National Counselling Society.
Clinical expertise: I have a strong background using integrative and person-centred therapeutic approaches. I also have worked at a private rehabilitation clinic in Notting Hill where I supported clients with drug, alcohol, gambling, co-dependancy and food addictions. Here I applied cutting edge intervention techniques to addiction treatment by facilitating group therapy and psycho educational workshops.
My previous experience also includes one of the largest and most well established mental health service providers in the UK, the Priory clinic.
Public speaking events: include GOOGLE, Amazon UK, Battersea Wellness, and regular workshops in treatment centres.
...I moved from a successful career in investment management to pursue my passion in this field. My personal journey, education and experience informs the way I connect to, understand and ultimately help people facilitate lasting emotional and behavioural change.

What my clients say…
Jay is a rare find. She combines old-fashioned professionalism with world class skill and sensitivity to teach and rewire for genuine results. In her sessions there is no airy-fairy mucking around; she works quickly and effectively to identify and deeply understand contributing factors to low/poor self esteem. She is a practitioner who really gets to the root of a problem and teaches you how to eliminate or mould your thoughts, and actions to change your world. Elora, Director. Sydney
Jay really helped me approach my life in a different way. After just a few weeks I felt calmer, more in control and able to cope with the problems that life throws at you in a far more measured way. She is friendly, approachable and will leave you with tools that will help you make the most of your life. I would highly recommend her. Simon, Lawyer. London
Jay is amazing. She is a great listener, someone who goes well beyond the surface and takes off each and every one of the masks we all wear. Solution focused and goal centered, Jay has the skills and the passion to help you navigate your emotions, thoughts, and belief system. The sessions with her were the best investment I made in myself, both personally and professionally. Raluca, Investment Professional. London
Jay worked together methodically through issues that had been troubling me until I could see the light at the end of the tunnel and felt I was able to cope. She is able to draw on diverse personal and professional experience to relate and understand people from different walks of life and backgrounds. You cannot help but being drawn to Jay by her positive energy, enthusiasm for life. Julia, Oil Trading. London
I feel so blessed to have met Jay on my personal journey of transformation. Within just a few sessions I was able to release some long entrenched fear-based beliefs that I had not been able to approach in 3 years of traditional therapy work. Jay masters a variety of tools and techniques that make each session both empowering and uplifting. I can't recommend her enough. Penelope, Professor of Art & Design. Paris
When I started seeing Jay I felt sad, disconnected and out of touch with my own thoughts and feelings. Within the first three sessions only, I had countless eye opening moments that really helped me understand myself. I have since learnt how to observe my own thoughts and feelings, express and communicate my emotions and deal with difficult situations. Jay is a light in this world and I am grateful to her. Lisa, Graphic Designer. London
I am really enjoying working with Jay and have been impressed at how effective CBT has been. It is giving me a new, calmer perspective and is providing me with tools to have more positive and relaxed relationships with other people. Anonymous, Lawyer. London
Jay is an exceptional listener as well as providing very wise counsel. I have really benefitted from the self-awareness she has guided me to through her non-judgemental approach, helping me to work through my issues and find the solutions that lie within. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jay’s services to anyone. Charlotte, Project Support Manager. East Sussex
Jay has an exceptional talent to listen to and decipher complex issues and offer practical real world solutions. She is sympathetic yet firm. She will change your outlook on life. I highly recommend her. Anonymous, Lawyer. Arizona
Jay has taught me how to control my emotions and harness them in a more productive and healthy way, something that had not been part of my previous education. She is a great listener, a person with which you can easily engage with in a genuine discussion. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jay as it was an experience I will forever cherish. Mihai, Software Developer. London
Jay is a very unique individual in that she truly listens, observes & cares about what you say & how it makes you feel. She offers the right balance in terms of friendly and helpful but in a very professional manner. Jay also draws from her own life experience & expertise to help you see things from a different perspective. I highly recommend Jay, she is very discreet and approachable. Sandra, Medical Secretary. London
Jay manages to blend an open mind with a no nonsense approach. She is supportive through difficult topics with a sensitive but steadfast manner. Alex, London
