About Annmarie

I trained and worked as a family lawyer and mediator at Farrer & Co, one of the top London law firms, for over a decade. In that time I specialised in complicated divorce and finances cases and difficult disputes over children.

I realised through this that I wanted to help clients with their emotional difficulties as well as legal matters so trained for several years to become a therapist before setting up my therapy, coaching and training practice in 2018.

Most of my clients are either dealing with relationship difficulties or endings or are lawyers  (or other professionals) dealing with stress, anxiety and/or low mood.

I also see clients with addiction and attachment issues and those with fertility and family difficulties.

I’m not your typical inscrutable therapist. What that means is when you’re working with me you get a sense of who I am. And what I have to offer is warmth, informality, integrity and creativity.

I believe that my humanity and practical real-world perspective is as important as the psychological theory underpinning it all. Having a sense of humour also helps at times!

I live in West London and spend my spare time mediating disputes between my children, keeping (relatively) fit and taking my pet pug for walks.
