Are you trying to get on with things in life, but your negative thoughts, feelings or patterns get in the way, leaving you feeling anxious or depressed?
I specialise in helping you to free yourself from anxiety, negative feelings and behavioural patterns that have taken hold leaving you feeling stuck, confused, and even more anxious. Nothing is more exhausting than battling with overwhelming feelings every day and not knowing what to do with them.
You may be experiencing:
- flash of anger
- a sense of feeling stuck, confused or anxious, whether in your job, relationship or other aspect of your life
- over-sensitivity and anxiety much of the time
- a feeling of being overwhelmed or out of control
- having negative thoughts that can spiral out of control
- feeling helpless
- Blaming yourself over and over
- difficulty sleeping
- depressed moods and lack of motivation
- difficulty finding a sense of purpose and making decisions
- fear of uncertainty
- feeling stuck with a pattern
- relationship difficulties - either clinging to a bad relationship or allowing a good one to spiral out of control
- career difficulties - finding yourself either stuck at a job that you don't like or not being able to find a job suited to your skills or potential
Life can become empty when our anxiety and other negative thoughts and feelings make us hold back and avoid so much of life.
• How I can help you
We will work together to understand your problems by increasing awareness of your inner world. Every session you can bring anything that bothers you in your daily life, relationship and work. Together, we can think about them and unravel, experience and understand the true, deep-rooted feelings behind your worries in order to resolve them. We will understand your patterns and coping strategies and find the links to your past that effect your present. By unlocking these roots, we'll release you from anxiety and many other negative feelings and patterns that have taken hold in every aspect of your life.
I will help you to develop a stronger self and build a secure self to rely on at times of anxiety and stress.

Training, qualifications & experience
I currently work for NHS Homerton Hospital as a psychotherapist. I also work as a counsellor and therapist in private practice, Bank City of London and Euston and West hampstead.

I have also volunteered for Samaritans providing emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress, despair or suicidal thoughts.
I have gone through a five year intensive psychotherapy training at WPF, one of the leading training centres for psychotherapists in the country and continued working with people from diverse range of backgrounds and different psychological distress at this institute for a while.
I hold a Post-graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice from Roehampton University.
I also have a BSc in Psychology and have done a great deal of research on human behaviour and mental health.
