About me

Is something troubling you?

Talking to an experienced psychotherapist who is clinically trained to help you explore and make some sense of what is concerning you is the first step towards feeling better.

Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed or anxious or a bit depressed and you don’t understand why. Or, perhaps, you may know exactly what is troubling you but you just don’t know how to deal with it.

I provide a safe, professional and containing space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings; where you can talk and be heard.

I am now seeing clients in Tenterden, at the Tenterden Natural Health Clinic.

My established private practices are in the City (EC4) and South London (Beckenham BR3).

I also work at  Guy’s Hospital London  as an honorary psychotherapist.

In a voluntary capacity, I am a bereavement counsellor with Cruse National Bereavement Charity.

Psychotherapy aims to make sense of current difficulties by exploring the thoughts and feelings surrounding them. Often situations in the present have roots in the past. My role, as a therapist, is to help disentangle these and support you in paving the way towards living your own life with greater awareness and emotional freedom.

I deal with a wide range of issues and offer therapy in two ways:

Open-ended psychotherapy, can be particularly helpful in dealing with deep seated problems as it provides the opportunity to explore recurring patterns of behaviour. By recognising triggers and understanding how we are drawn to repeating old patterns, we gradually develop greater insight into our own feelings and behaviour.

Short-term therapy (12 weeks) takes one specific focus, agreed at the beginning. We would work on understanding its origins and the related impact on your current life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at WPF Therapy (London), one of the leading academic and clinical institutions in the UK.

I also offer a limited number of reduced fee places for students and people on a low income or in financial difficulties.

In line with standard practice – sessions are 50 minutes, and take place on the same day at the same time every week.

All enquiries are treated in total confidence.

A GP referral is not required.

Further information

Prior to my training in psychotherapy, I worked in education, training and human development in public and private sector organisations in the UK and internationally.

Having lived and worked in different parts of the world, I have significant experience of working with people from different cultures, faiths and backgrounds.

Loss

I have a special professional interest in working with loss, which can involve a wide range of experiences, including bereavement, redundancy, divorce, separation, relocation, migration, change in professional or personal identity, death of a pet.

Loss can underlie many aspects of our lives, though its influences are not always immediately obvious to us. Acknowledging and attempting to coming to terms with what we have lost is an important step towards healthy adaptation to the new circumstances in which we may find ourselves.
