I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and counsellor practising in East Finchley, Central London and Aldgate.
I aim to provide a safe and comfortable space where you can share your thoughts and what pains you.
Without judgement, I will be respectful of your outlook and your individual life, not aiming to guide you but rather facilitating your capacity to guide yourself.
I understand therapy to be a special type of conversation. One that allows you to hear yourself and the many thoughts and feelings you may hold silently within. As such, it can be daunting and the pace needs to reflect that. However, within a trusting therapeutic relationship, it can also be deeply cathartic and profoundly empowering.
Together we can look at how you understand your situation, where you find yourself and how that may be at odds with your hopes and desires.
Working collaboratively and through dialogue, we will strive to shine a light on your ways of being in order that you can gain clarity and direction to manage and move forward in your life.
How I work:
I practise existentially which means my approach is grounded in a philosophy that questions the nature of human experience. It recognises our capacity for growth whilst challenging our responses to unavoidable limitations.
I am richly informed by the psychodynamic approach that seeks to understand patterns of relating as a result of early relationships. These patterns may become evident within the therapeutic relationship itself. So the therapy space can provide a safe place for exploring ways of interacting, leading to increased personal awareness, insight and ultimately, change.
Existential therapy allows you to pay attention to how you live your life, how you make sense of your values, assumptions and the choices you make.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained and qualified at Regent's University, School of Psychotherapy and Psychology London.
Further to training in Integrative Psychotherapy (PgDip), I graduated with an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy.
Whilst training, I gained invaluable experience working with clients in two services: A community service in North West London where I saw clients with a vast and varied range of concerns.
I also worked in a domestic violence service.
Both services handled psychiatric, NHS and self-referrals.
Areas I work in include: anxiety, depression, loss, isolation, relationship difficulties, feelings of stuckness, low self-esteem, trauma, abuse and domestic violence.
I am committed to continuing professional development and undertake regular clinical supervision.
