Welcome to KM Psychotherapy

Supporting adults of all ages to live a more balanced life.

I offer a free initial 20-minute video or phone call so we can discuss how I can best help you.



Online and face-to-face appointments available in my Rickmansworth therapy room (close to Chorleywood, Northwood and Watford).

Please note that my practice is currently full.
Availability for new clients from 12th September.


I have a special interest in supporting clients in two areas, anxiety and self esteem issues, as well as chronic pain and illness.

Anxiety and Self Esteem
Being stuck in a cycle of anxiousness and/or having low self-esteem can be overwhelming and can stop you from living your life as you would like. Holding on to anxiety rather than releasing it often seems the 'right' way of managing it; sometimes we are not even aware how much we hold internally. Eventually we can reach a place of overwhelm. Therapy can help you work through your anxiety, understanding and acknowledging triggers and finding new ways of coping. There are many techniques that we can use to support this, and I will work with you so that we can discover which are appropriate for you.

If you are experiencing physical symptoms such as headaches, IBS, joint pain or fibromyalgia, for example, your body may be literally carrying or holding the weight of your anxiety. We can consider whether a more holistic approach will help you – exploring the connection between your physical symptoms and your anxiety. I welcome the opportunity to support you to identify patterns, develop strategies and to develop further insight and perspective to resolve personal issues and find new ways forward.

Chronic Pain and Chronic Illness
I support people with chronic pain and chronic illness, such as CFS/ME, fibromyalgia and autoimmune conditions. Treatment for chronic conditions is mainly focused on managing, often debilitating, physical symptoms. However, the psychological and emotional impact of these conditions and symptoms are equally relevant and important. In my research and in my work with clients, I frequently encounter people who experience not being believed or heard and often are misunderstood. Sometimes they have been told that 'there's nothing wrong with you' 'it's all in your head' or 'you need to try harder'. This in turn can increase physical and psychological pain.

I will listen, hear and believe you, working alongside you with empathy and without judgment. We know that the mind and body are connected and so physical and psychological symptoms require a holistic approach. I will support you holistically to live an enriched life within the limitations of your condition. We can utilise various techniques and will decide together which are appropriate for you.



I am an experienced face-to-face and online psychotherapist and counsellor, working online, via video and telephone and face-to-face, where appropriate.

I offer you my warmth, empathy and compassion, without judgment, and I welcome the opportunity to work alongside you, as we navigate through even the most difficult times in your life.

Empathy has no script. There is no right way or wrong way to do it. It’s simply listening, holding space, withholding judgment, emotionally connecting, and communicating that incredibly healing message of ‘You’re not alone.’

Brené Brown




Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Viktor Frankl




There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.

Maya Angelou




What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.
