Are depression, fear, anxiety, panic, relationship issues or addictions troubling you?
Working to understand yourself better might reduce distress, clear up confusion, instil hope and improve relationships.
I have been helping people manage emotional distress and live a healthier life 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.
I trained at Metanoia Institute and have wide ranging experience of work with people with severe and enduring emotional distress sometimes labelled bipolar and personality disorders. As with all responsible psychotherapists, I have on-going personal experience of long-term psychotherapy.
I have particular expertise in working with alcohol and drug addictions, severe anxiety and depression and concerns around race, sexuality and sexual health. I also have significant experience in working with general life problems around self-understanding, loss of direction and meaning in life and relationships etc. For a few years, I ran the counselling service at Naz Project London, a sexual health charity working with BME communities. I am registered with the UK council for psychotherapy (UKCP), the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS).
You may be looking at psychotherapy because you:
- struggle with panic, sadness or 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 space in your life for conversations focussed upon your inner life where you can remember, think and experience. These conversations are difficult if not impossible to have in ordinary modern lives and without them, our lives are very 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 is rare and helpful in achieving a better self-understanding and can help you create a better future for yourself. You might learn to manage your addictions, feelings of depression, anxiety, meaninglessness or confusion/obsession around sexuality.
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.
