9 Coldbath Square
I offer a safe and confidential environment to explore any challenges and issues that may cause you distress or inhibit you from achieving the life that you wish for. I bring compassion, creativity and an unfailing belief in the human capacity for change.
How I work
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, which means that I draw on a range of theoretical perspectives including attachment, humanistic, behavioural, and psychodynamic approaches and mindfulness to sensitively tailor my approach to meet the specific needs of individuals at any stage of their recovery and life. This includes supporting clients to develop awareness of patterns of thinking, feeling and relating and to learn healthy coping strategies to create meaningful and lasting change. But above all, I bring warmth and honesty to my work valuing the uniqueness in every person I work with.
You may have specific issues that you wish to address or you may feel dissatisfaction with some area of your life and want further exploration. Perhaps you feel low or unhappy without any obvious cause or sense why, or are experiencing stress, or general anxiety in your life.
I specialise in working with eating disorders and addictions, as well as working with a broad range of challenges that life presents including anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, family issues and relationship issues.
What to expect in your first session
In the first session we’ll talk about what you want to get out of therapy and I will ask some questions to learn more about you, your life and what brings you to therapy now to assess the most appropriate approach for your needs. It is also an opportunity for you to ask me any questions and to get a sense of me and how I work.
If you’re happy to continue we can set up a second session and will agree when and how often we’ll meet (for example, once weekly, twice weekly or fortnightly). Sessions are 50 minutes long and are usually at the same time and place.
What happens next
Periodically we would review therapy to see how we’re meeting your initial aims and to identify any changes that you experience in yourself and your life, as well as identifying any new areas that you wish to explore. We’d also think about how the sessions themselves are going and if you feel you are being heard and getting what you want out of them.
Every therapy session is different but they are led by your needs with the overarching aim of enabling you to learn how to navigate your life and relationships with confidence so that you no longer need a therapist.
I specialize in psychotherapy for eating disorders, supporting clients to explore the deeper issues that are expressed through their relationship to food and body dissatisfaction. I bring a wealth of specialist experience and knowledge to my work and I have experience in both inpatient and outpatient specialist eating disorder services in the NHS and private sector.
Therapy for eating disorders can help you manage or eliminate eating disorder symptoms including bingeing, purging, restricting, laxative abuse and excessive exercising. You can learn healthy coping strategies and deepen your self-understanding, self-confidence and self-compassion so that you have the courage to live the life you wish for.
Getting started is simple - call, text or email me to set up an initial session.
Farringdon station, Chancery Lane, Barbican, Angel and Russell Square stations are all within walking distance of my therapy practice. There is a pay and display car park and an NCP car park a few minutes walk away.
