Do depression, fear, anxiety, panic, addictions or relationship problems trouble you?
Working to understand yourself through psychotherapy could reduce distress and help you towards a more contented life.
I have been helping people manage emotional distress for the past 23 years within the NHS and voluntary sector. I have worked in mental health services within major London hospitals as well as in schools and street-based services gaining experience of working with severe and enduring emotional distress, sometimes called bipolar and personality disorders.
I have particular expertise in working with alcohol and drug addictions, severe anxiety and depression, obsessions and compulsions and concerns around race, sexuality and sexual health. For a few years, I ran the counselling service at Naz Project London, a sexual health charity working with BME communities.
I trained at Metanoia Institute and I am registered with the UK council for psychotherapy (UKCP), the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). As with all responsible psychotherapists, I have on-going personal experience of long-term psychotherapy.
You may be looking at psychotherapy because you:
- struggle with panic, sadness, depression, obsessions, compulsions and anxiety.
- harbour significant insecurities and low self-esteem preventing you from fully living.
- worry too much about what others think or want.
- live with intense emotional pain, chronic fatigue and or anger
- find yourself with addictions or other distressing and uncontrollable behaviour
Psychotherapy is a commitment you make to creating a regular space in your life for conversations about your inner life, somewhere you can remember, think and experience. These conversations are impossible in our ordinary modern lives and without them, our lives remain conflicted and unfulfilled.
I will work with you to create the safe and stable environment where you can speak and be heard without judgement. The experience of speaking and feeling together with being heard and understood and can help in achieving greater self-understanding and create a better future for yourself.
I can work with you on a short or long-term basis, depending upon your need.

I work from two locations across London, centrally near the Barbican in EC1 and in North London N15.
In North London (N15), I work from home which is a second floor flat. I am just over 10 minutes walk from Manor House or Turnpike Lane stations on the Piccadilly or Seven Sisters on the Victoria line.
In Central London (EC1M), I have a third floor office very close to Barbican station. I am within easy walking distance of Holborn, Chancery Lane, Farringdon, Old Street, Liverpool Street and Moorgate stations
Unfortunately there is no disabled access at any of the places I practice.
